Face - Check for facial droop or an uneven smile
Arm - Observe if one arm lags behind, or is not raised as high as the opposite arm. Also check to see if the person is unable to maintain both their arms at equal height
Speech - Ask your loved one to repeat a simple sentence, such as "the cow jumped over the moon." Check to see if the person’s speech is altered or slurred, or if they have difficulty understanding.
Time - Call 911 and get to the hospital immediately.
