Old aged, had paralytic brain hemorrhage. Taking epilson, vitamins, physiotherapy. How to recover quickly?

My mother, 83 years had a paralytic brain haemorrage 8 months back and got allopathic treatment which is still continuing with Epsilon and vitamins . Her improvements were very fast and encouraging but she still can not walk of her own despite long treatment. She can stand up and does regular physiotherapy . Can walk with some support of nurse. Is there any treatment which can enable her to walk quickly?

Neurologist, Surgical 's  Response

It is good to know your mother is making good progress. Once can expect improvement upto a year or year and half following a stroke. There are no proven medications that can speed up the neurological recovery though some drugs like Citicolline can be tried. The remaining normal brain surrounding the stroked areas need to take up the function of the affected part and this is easier if the patient is younger and the "brain plasticity" is better.

Hope this helps.
