In brief: No

At the present time, there is no new or novel treatment in patients who already had a stroke.
There is only prevention of future strokes.

In brief: There are some

There are many different types of multi-infarct dementia.
A single tiny stroke in the anterior nucleus of the thalamus can cause severe abulia that might respond to Dopamine agonists and psycho-stimulants to some extent. Trans cranial magnetic stimulation of the brain is being used for more and more conditions every day with some success. A lot depends on what structures have been damaged.
