Blurred and impaired speech after stroke, stiff hand movement. How long to recover?

Hello Doctor, My Mom with Age 55, had a brain stoke (left side of the brain) 2 years back (Sept 2010). At present she is having her regular medication and excercise as adviced by the neurologist , and now she is able to balance herself quite nicely and can also walk without much difficulties, the important part lies is about her speech which is not proper (blured & impaired speech)and the movement of Right hand . From Dec 2011, her right hand had started some movement but it movement is quite stiff & rigid. Just wanted to know by how much time will she ll take more to come up with proper speech and proper right hand movement.
