Suffered Intracrebral Hemorrhage, seems disoriented, unable to move his legs. How to gain back functionality ?

Hello , my father ( 70 years old ) suffered an Intracrebral Hemorrhage , he was admitted to the hospital in Jan.15 and stayed in the ICU for 69 days , then was transferred to a regular room , he is not oriented or as the doctors say ( semi oriented ) , he sometimes recognizes me (his son ) , and sometimes not , we've been taking him to rehabilitation for the past 32 days but i personally dont see any improvement when it comes to moving his own self in bed or when we help him to sit , what i forgot to mention is the he can move both arms and his lift leg , but the right leg is still absent , is there anything that you would recommend me to do or ask for that might help my father gain his functionality back ?

Thank you for posting your query.

Brain hemorrhage leads to irreversible damage to brain nerves (where the bleeding occurred). Therefore, complete or significant recovery usually does not occur and survivors are left with varynig degrees of disability.

Future treatment would consist of good physiotherapy and brain stimulation acitivities under the guidance of a rehab specialist.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
