Jennifer Aniston's mother, Nancy Dow, suffered a stroke last week. This was her second one in 15 months.
Dow, 76, had a serious stroke in September 2011 and has suffered a number of injuries since then, including a broken hip bone and bruised shoulder after recent falls.
According to an insider, the original stroke limited Dow's physical movement so severely that she now requires 24-hour care.
"Luckily, this one was minor. She went to the hospital, but she's already back home. But she's having trouble talking and is still shuffling around," the source tells Celebuzz.
