My father has just recently suffered from a mild stroke. THe doctor said the symptoms he manifested were all signs towards a severe case of stroke.. Is this irreversible? Can he still perform work and other things that he used to before? I am still very scared of this condition.. I know stroke is very bad.

Sorry to read about your father. If he has had a mild stroke he probably is at risk of another, but that doesn't mean it's imminent, it could be years and not necessarily a major one. It might be a good idea for you to read up as much as you can on the condition. And maybe make a list of questions/concerns you have and ask the doctor if he could explain things in more detail for you.
