My Grandma is 71 this Oct. and has been in an assisted living home for about 5+ years. She had a brain aneurism followed by 2 strokes in 2001 and her cognitive health has never been the same.
She has smoked cigarettes' for many years as well as weed. She still does, however, our family can only afford to buy her 1 pack a day at the most. When she does not get that pack or decides she wants more, she has been stealing from other residents of the home. This has been happening for about 6-8 months now. (2020 pandemic) Recently, it has gotten worse and now the other residents are threatening to call the authorities. When confronted, my Grandma said that she NEEDS two packs a day or she will kill herself. Suicide is very serious and my family is really scared and not sure what to do. We have very limited money and my aunt and I are the only ones close by.
I don't even know where to start, or who to go, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
