first of all, I wish your mom a speedy recovery
. My husband had a stroke
last year in July. He was depressed, also. As time
went on he has become less and less depressed. The depression will subside once your mom starts getting back to the way she was. It may take a while. Have you talked to her doctor about getting antidepressants? That will help, too. Try to encourage her to keep doing therapy and doing excercises.
