In brief: Treat for depression

An elderly post-stroke patient has a significant likelihood of depression.
Aside from a patient, caring care-goiver, she would benefit from depression evaluation and treatment.

In brief: Agree

I would also advise seeking out a geriatric specialist.
.. Or even a psychiatrist with geriatric training...These will be even more familiar with this difficult situation. Have you read " the 36 - hour day". ? Look for it- all about the caregiver's struggle ... Good luck!
