Overly Emotional Responses Upsetting To Stroke Victim's Family

StormywaterDear Carol: My father was always quietly supportive. He loved his family but showed little emotion. Six months ago he had a stroke and is now in a nursing home. His speech has been affected and he has trouble finding the words he wants to use. He’s receiving therapy but will likely be wheelchair bound the rest of his life.  We have a large family and we all visit often. Mom practically lives at the nursing home with him.  He can seem fairly content but then out of nowhere he starts to cry. I know that these changes in his life have to be terribly depressing, but there doesn’t seem to be any logic to his crying spells. What can we do to help him? - Sandra
