In brief: It depends

It depends on the quality of life.
There are different stages of renal failure. There are different presentations of stroke. But the most important part of piece is the living wills. So if this person has bad stroke and renal failure along with the living wills stating that this person does not want an artifical nutrition and dialysis then it is terminal condition, less than six months to live.
