Recovery From Stroke

An_252580 posted:
hey,
My dad had stroke 2 months ago. He has recovered with his speech problem but always complaints that he cannot see properly, he is able to see the blurred image of any object. We took him to the health club but he doesn't want to go there. My family is very confused what to do, he has become very dependent. What should we do? Will he recover?

I would assume that you have tried taking your dad to doctors to see if anything can be done with his sight. If not, that should be a priority. From the way you describe his sight, he is functionally blind. How would you all respond to suddenly being blind? No reading, no TV, at least like it used to be, etc. etc. Your dad is dealing with a major loss! Perhaps you could get him some therapy to help him to adjust. Just because he doesn't want to go to a health club doesn't mean he is wrong. Health clubs are not the thing for many even healthy people. What activities could he get involved in with his lack of sight? I don't have a clue and maybe he doesn't either. Try some compassion first. Get him to a therapist who had the skills to help someone who has just become blind. Good luck.
