communication following stroke

Question: Hi my father suffered with a small stroke 1 year ago followed by a few Tia's. The stroke mainly affected his speech and cognitive thought . He has recovered, but occasionally when he is tired or is woken up abruptly he becomes confused and appears to be word finding this always wears off usually 30 mins to 1 hour later. Can this be permanent, and will he just have to learn to now accept this as normal. Thank you

Answer: This could be permanent, and I see it frequently. It is not unusual for someone who has had a stroke to struggle with symptoms when tired or waking up from sleep especially with language and cognition.
