Thank you for posting your q Urey.

At this stage, your dad requires regular exercises under the guidance of a physiotherapist. He should be made to sit, stand and walk with support.

He would also benefit from cognitive stimulation. Family members should talk to him, tell him about various events in the family, etc. He should be also made to listen to songs, bhajans, etc.

In addition, you should take care of his food and nutrition, with the help of a dietician.

Best wishes,
