Post-stroke care is extremely important to ensuring the continued well-being of your loved one as they recover after a hospital stay. There are several helpful resources online that can give you caregiving tips to help you assist your uncle in his recovery. Check out this Patient and Family Guide by the US Agency for HealthCare Research and Quality: http://www.strokecenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Recovering-After-a-Stroke.pdf 

The National Stroke Association also offers information on post-stroke conditions and lifestyle changes that can help your uncle maintain both physical and mental well-being as he ages. Seniorly.com also features communities that offer short-term respite stays for people who need a transition between the hospital and home.
