My dad suffered a stroke approx. 2 months ago. He was in the hospital for about 5 weeks, doing rehab, etc. Now he is home and goes to rehab 3 times a week. He can now get up and walk with a cane wearing a brace, but he still very little movement in his arm (right side of the body). He is trying to get better but I can still see that he is sad about the whole thing. Is there anything I can recommend for rehab at home to help work on getting movement on his arm? Also, his hand is very swollen.
