Rehab for a hemorrhagic stroke patient

My mom had a hemorrhagic stroke on may 6th of this year, it was completely unexpected and she actually had a new patient appointment with her pcp two days prior to her stroke and everything was fine. She was intubated immiedetly in the ER where they learned her brain was filling with blood. To make a long story short she had emergency surgery to stop the bleeding and was in the ICU for two weeks in a coma for two weeks. She was eventually moved to the rehab unit in the hospital and from there to a nursing facility/home for rehab. It has been 5 months now and she's made a lot of progress with the exception of her left side being paralyzed. She has full feeling in both left limbs, she just has not been able to move them yet. I was recently told by her nursing home that they feel that she has met her max potential  as far as rehab go and have placed her into a "restorative" program to keep her in her current state and was only going to be referred back to full time therapy if her condition got worse. They did all of this back in august and I was not notified and had no knowledge of this and was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this before. My impression with stroke patients was that they need constant rehab for at least a year maybe more. Any help would be great :)
