Hello...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. I did a search for stroke support groups in your area but I couldn't come up with anything. You may want to check with your local hospitals. Good luck to your mom.

The National Stroke Association had a searchable page by zip code which doesn't seem to be available
Thank you PamRam228 & oc1dean for responding to my question. I appreciate your assistance and encouragement.
