My father is 77 and lives alone. He's been an alcoholic for decades. He's also been on Norco for years and yes combines the two. He was pretty independent for a while. Recently we've had a few hospital trips, he has fallen a few times. If we get him into a rehabilitation facility to gain strength back, he declines the physical therapy and gets released back home. When we sign him up for home nursing care, he cancels it, now I'm worried of possible alcoholic dementia. He's always in a very sedate state, can't remember things or preform simple tasks like checking blood sugar, (diabetic ) trouble with speech and doesn't understand why everyone is concerned. Hospitals can only do so much, they say he's of sound mind because he knows his name, who the president is, and who we are. My Dad adamantly refuses help, refuses to acknowledge his addictions and we're so afraid he's going to hurt himself or someone else since he drives. I don't know what to do.
