In brief: One year
In general, i tell patients to expect the majority of improvement within one year of their stroke.

In brief: 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.
