In brief: Best to see a prof

Although one can work on their memory with practice and practice focusing, it would be best to contact a rehab person who specializes in post head injury cognitive rehab.

In brief: To safe tolerance

Activity as much as is safe, perhaps with some supervision and depending on severity can be a good thing.
While the real-life efficacy of neuro-rehab is a bit controversial, generally using your body and mind helps dendretic branching in the brain, development of alternate strategies and reduces muscular atrophy. However, failure experiences can be demoralizing. Judgment is key.
