I have a friend whose father had a stroke about a month 1/2 ago. Insurance wouldn't pay anymore, so they had to take him home. He is 80 years old but in excellent health except for this. He has normal sugar, high blood pressure, etc.
He is paralyzed on the right side and can't speak, but his mind is in perfect form.
He started to slightly move his leg and has gained feeling in it.

The doctor gave his daughter some physiothrepy instructions to help him and she is whiling to do whatever possible. The father is very determined and persistent to do those things.

Is there a book that can help her to know what and how to do the necessary physiotherapy?

Thank you
