My dad had a SAH around 4 weeks ago. He was in ICU for a week but is now on a Acute Stroke unit for rehab. I was just wondering how long he is likely to be there? He is currently still quite confused and has no short term memory at all. We had hoped this would improve as he has been on the ward for 3 weeks but he had some set backs (1st hydrocephiuls then vasodilation) so doesn't seem to be going forward. We have been warned that it is a slow progression to recovery but they (understandably) won't give us any rough estimates. How long did other people find it?
Also my mother had to sort their mortagage out this week and she got him to sign a form. She did this on her own and we are concerned about what she may have done. Are SAH effects covered under mental health acts?
Any advice would be greatly recieved!
