And, if you have insurance or can find a way to afford it, get your husband out of a skilled nursing
facility and into an acute or post-acute care rehab
facility, preferably one that specializes in brain injuries.
My husband had a severe stroke in August and is currently in a neurorehab. He was paralyzed on the right side, lost his ability to speak intelligbly, had no sense of balance, couldn't swallow, short-term memory loss, and had many cognitive issues.
