Wife's stroke recovery

by Tim
(Agate Colorado USA)

Remove ALL throw rugs. Shuffling feet are common and so is a fall from a rug. Each time this happened it was always a head injury which pushed back any gains to the beginning of recovery.

Attempt to bring to light paying attention to the feet always ends up in a argument.

My question, who to turn to when the victim completely gives up?
I.E. stays in bed until afternoon, refuses any form of exercise, refuses to get off the couch?
Sitting or sleeping all day is causing loss of leg strength, any attempt to motivate her always ends up in another fight.

Tried outpatient physical therapy of 4 flavors and ended each due to lack of interest.
It's almost like she's enjoying having a caregiver at her beckon?

Considering therapy for me, not her.
