Karen o Posted October 4, 2020 Share Posted October 4, 2020 Hi, my partner has had an Ischemic stroke at 50years affecting the right hand side of his brain. He was in intensive care for one week and was in hospital roughly two months in total. He has been home almost two weeks and I am physically and emotionally exhausted. Carers are organised to give him his medication and help him wash and dress in morning as well as give him his breakfast while I am at work. He refuses to let the carer help with personal care. Refuses to use walking aid. He falls often and says I am being over protective. Rehab team have spoken to him about the risks and he agrees at the time but then does what he wants. He resents me for leaving him in hospital until physio said it was okay to discharge and carer in place. He has left hand side neglect, spatial awareness issues, behaviour change, attention issues etc.. Please, can anyone advise if it gets better?
