1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
Age is really not the factor here.
The recovery of motor function after a stroke takes about 6 months in most cases. Those that find motor function returning early within the first few weeks after a stroke usually go on to the best recovery. Those who have no movement after a few weeks will typically have slower and less complete return of motor function.

In brief: Quite possible
The older the patient, depending on other health conditions, the better the chances of recovering at least some function.
Younger patients tend to have larger, more devastating strokes.
