2 Years post-stroke

I work in home care and I have a patient who had a stroke 2 years ago… completely flaccid arm without any twitch. I’ve been working with him for 5 weeks on balance, strengthening his non-affected side, coordination, safety, and adaptation. I have very limited equipment. Family wants to end services if I am not working on the affected side. How do you advocate for OT and adaptive strategies when the family just doesn’t want to hear it?
