how long does it take to "recover" from a stroke to the point where no more improvement is expected?

Depends: It depends on the severity of the initial stroke, the severity of the injury and the age of the patient. In the best case scenario, in a relatively younger patient with incomplete injury, improvement may still occur over several months.
