She became the POA for her widowed Mom when her mother moved to be near her. I live across the country but care deeply for both my friend and her mother. My friend seems so depressed and I think she is using wine as a pain killer. So many of the things she tells me just can't be true! Perfect example of someone in lala land. Are there any observations or questions I could look for to understand the difference between a person with dementia or just drunk? And if it really is dementia, it is becoming worse and worse.
