What should the nurse aid help when aid a customer who is recovering from a stroke to walk?

A on the patients weak side

The nurse aide should stay on the patient’s weak side when helping a patient walk who is recovering from a stroke . Walk next to, and slightly behind, the customer in order to be ready to suddenly support the weak side. If the customer is using a walker or cane, let space for the device. While walking, be alert to avoid possible fall hazards. The customer should wear slippers or shoes with rubber soles for traction.
