Mom has been drinking heavily last 12 years. Starts at 6am until passing out, usually 2 bottles wine a day. She's been to rehab twice & hospitalized 3-4 times (detoxing each time) -- only to be released and immediately strat drinking again. Dad finally moved out last week -- he is in decent health but the stress was killing him. He's now in an apartment until we find a place for Mom.
I live 3,000 miles away -- my sister lives 5 min away. Our parents are very dependent on my sister for everything & she works full-time and has 3 kids.
This has to stop.
Dad wants to move in to an Indedependent Living setting where there are social outlets. He is VERY social and needs to be active and engaged. He will not move anywhere with Mom and the alcoholism.
Mom begrudgingly agrees she needs to move as well.
But where will take her? She refuses to quit drinking or enter in to any treatment.
