This is an ethical question - the answer is always to do no harm to the patient. If this patient can take something that would prevent further strokes, and it is affordable ( like Disprin) , and he can fairly easily take it in, he probably should get it.
He may however need to be in a unit for frail care as it sounds as if he needs 24 hours nursing care - see http://www.savf.co.za/bejaarde.html
