To evaluate the effect of traditional Chinese medicine continuous nursing on the functional improvement of elderly stroke patients. A total of 85 cases of elderly stroke patients admitted to the department of neurology of our hospital from January 2019 to January 2020 were selected as the research objects. According to the random number table method, the selected cases were divided into two groups, the control group (42 cases) received routine discharge nursing and the study group (43 cases) received traditional Chinese medicine continuous nursing on the basis of the control group. The cognitive function, neurological function, social function and motor function were compared between the two groups. Compared with those before intervention, the scores of Montreal cognitive assessment scale in the two groups were significantly increased after the intervention (p<0.05) and Montreal cognitive assessment scale score of the study group was higher than that of the control group (p<0.05). Compared with those before the intervention, the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale scores of the two groups were significantly decreased after the intervention (p<0.05) and the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score of the study group was lower than that of the control group (p<0.05). Compared with those before the intervention, the Social Functional Rafing Scale scores of the two groups were significantly decreased after the intervention (p<0.05) and the Social Functional Rafing Scale score of the study group was lower than that of the control group (p<0.05). Compared with those before the intervention, the scores of Fugl-Meyer assessment (upper limb) and Fugl-Meyer assessment (lower limb) of the two groups were significantly increased after the intervention (p<0.05) and the scores of Fugl-Meyer assessment (upper limb) and Fugl- Meyer assessment (lower limb) of the study group were higher than those of the control group (p<0.05). Traditional Chinese medicine continuous nursing has positive effects on improving the cognitive function, neural function, social function, motor function of elderly patients with stroke.
