Lightbulb Strokes and Erratic Blood Pressure

My dear little 89 year old mother-in law has had 4mini-strokes and 1 full blown stroke in the last month. Her doctors attribute these to her erratic blood pressure. She has been taking High BP medcation and also Blood thinners along with a slew of other medicine. Her BP has been as high as
232/118 and as low as 60/38..She lives in assisted living and takes her BP several times a day, She is weak and shows some effects of the strokes at times such as jumbled speech, and shaking and some
numbness in her mouth. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how her BP can be stabilized? Thanks Taxgirl2
