Parents are 82, both with dementia, they are in early stages, I guess. Dad drinks vodka, mom wine. They drink way too much, needing help to bed. I totally see how alcohol makes dementia worse. I feel if they didn't drink, they'd probably be able to live alone. It's really crazy here, my husband calls it a mad house! Doctor knows of their drinking, we get 3 months at their Dr. appt. seems I have to say, yes they fell since last visit. Anyway, without going into specific events, etc. I was wondering if/ how people deal with this?
Please I don't want to hear hide their booze, put them in rehab or AA -none of that is going to happen.
Thanks for any input!
