Information on Stroke Recovery and Rehab in Chennai

My 74 year-old father had an acute ischemic stroke on 10-Oct-2015 in US.   He hasn't really regained any level of alertness, though has shown marked improvement every day. Again, the condition of his pulse is not stable and varies on a higher scale. Besides, he is a chronic Asthma patient and now presently finding it very difficult to breathe.  He  can hear and respond to  our questions reasonably well.  He can move his left side freely  though the movement is much more limited on her right side and he can't make a single step on his own.

Now we are planning to bring him back to Chennai/India by end of this month (Dec 2015). We are clueless on the recovery process to be carried out in Chennai.  As his children are away from the native country, he needs to be taken care of well with dedicated assistance, round the clock.  What he requires is some treatment for his physical movement of right side and walk a bit on his own/with support in 2 to 4 months of time.
Can anyone provide with information on how we can achieve this. Basically, we are looking for an in patient rehab center which takes care of his treatment as well as his daily routines.  Alternatively, to appoint anyone who can stay at home for his daily assistance and visit by therapist for treatment.

Please suggest with information and details.

Love and Respect
