Have the per­son smile or show his or her teeth. If one side doesn’t move as well as the other and seems to droop, that could be a sign of a stroke. Have the per­son close his or her eyes and hold his or her arms straight out in front for about 10 sec­onds. If one arm does not move, or one arm winds up drift­ing down more than the other, that could be a sign of a stroke. SLURRED SPEECH. Have the per­son say, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” or some other sim­ple, fa­mil­iar say­ing. If the per­son slurs the words, gets some words wrong, or is un­able to speak, that could be sign of stroke.
