My granny had a series of strokes before she died. She knew what she wanted to say, she just had trouble getting the right words - so sometimes it didn't make any sense, but she hadn't gone senile or anything. It depends on what part of the brain is affected by the stroke. She had to give up her sewing and crochet which she loved, but she lived for many years after the first 2 strokes.
