patient with hemorrhagic stroke in thalamus

My brother in law suffered a hemorrhagic stroke in the thalamus and is considered large (around 19 cc of bleeding) on the right side of the brain.  He is 52 years of age and had a stroke 10 years ago on the left side of the brain.  

He never lost conscienceness when he had the stroke but had no strength in the left arm and leg. He is now slowly regaining movement in his left arm and leg, but still feeling weak.  Worse still, is that he does NOT have any sensory function, he cannot feel heat, pinch or touch.  

Can you please recommend what type of exercise or rehabilitation treatment is helpful to him, and whether accupuncture and foot massage will be helpful.  

In addition to this, is there anything that can help rejuvenate the thalamatic cells for his gain back his sensory functions???  

Thank you so much.
