Help for Stroke Victim

My husband had a stroke in October 2013.  He still has vision & perception problems, cognitive problems, language problems and balance & coordination problems.  After receiving PT, OT and ST, he had began to improve. He was bathing himself, feeding himself and walking pretty steadily.  But just recently he just declined and will no longer feed himself or do any of the things we was able to do on his own.  And now he won't let me help him do those things.  I have to literally and physically fight him just to get him cleaned up.  How can I take care of him if he won't let me?  I can't continue to fight with him just to get him cleaned up.  What can or should I do?

I'm sorry... what about some part time home health help?  Is that possible?   Also can you check with your local churches and hospitals to see if they have some classes or seminars on how to provide post stroke care for our loved ones.
