Just scared

My mother has had another stroke/TIA. They are not sure why. She now has a pronounced limp with her left leg. And at this point I will probably need to move in with her so she has care while her husband is working.

At this point I am just scared. If they dont know the cause, how many more episodes will she have before a major stroke? Just terrified and no one else can know.

Sorry you're going through this. Take care of yourself during this time. Plan for resources and long-term care. I had to become a part-time nurse for my relatives when they got sick and I lost a lot of money from no work. I also had Power of Attorney and had to make medical decisions for them and manage their banking/finances. This is/will be very stressful and I hope you have some help in this. Local organizations may offer assistance. Look up Caregiver Assistance if you want. See if you can get re-reimbursed for the care you provide either through your family or In-Home Supportive Services.

Thank you. Her provider has been great in getting the care in place for rehab which is where she currently is for speech, physical and occupational therapy. Once that is complete we will know better any additional care needed aside from monitor for another TIA/stroke.
