: I am an Activity Therapist in a long term care facility. I am currently treating a 63y.o. female who suffered a
: subarachnoid hemmorhage in June of this year. She appears to be recovering quite well wtih some left sided
: paralysis w/ her arm being worse than her leg. I am curious to know how much cognitive damage these can
: cause. We are having a difficult time deciding if her behavior is of a cognitive nature or of a manipulative
: nature. Any help is much appreciated by ALL the staff!!
I had a stroke and my left side was almost paralyzed (I didn't move it for four months). As for my memory (cognition), it started off really bad, but it is improving. You might want to do some research on what happens when a person has a stroke on the right side of the brain. I can't tell you because my stroke happened on both sides of my brain.
