Health change: It can be very stressful for both a patient and family have a serious life changing event such as a stroke. It is likely your father is worried he will fall and injure himself - he could also be depressed. Your grandmother should find out the real reason your father does not want to exercise.

Stroke: I am sorry to hear about your father. If this was an ischemic stroke (the ones where blood flow to the brain is interrupted) new data suggest that most stroke victims do improve and may continue to show signs of recovery even years after the stroke. That, obviously, will depend on stroke size and other concomitant diseases or complications. I wish him a meaningful recovery.

Behavioral changes, including exacerbation of personality traits and aside from depression, frustration and anger have been described in post stroke patients. Follow up with neurology becomes critical in order to better delineate pharma/ non-pharmacological approaches for such patients.
