How to get my aging mother's doctor to address what appears to be possible complications due to years of alcohol abuse. My mother is 80 years old and continues to insist on being the primary care giver of medications to my 84 years old father (with Parkinson's and other cardiology issues). Over the past 6 month specifically my mother has demonstrated many symptoms of what could be alcoholic dementia or other more serious conditions as a result of years of alcohol abuse.
1. I am concerned for the medical safety and health of my father as he has been hospitalized 3 times in less then 3 months due to my mother's tapering of medications that my father's physician has prescribed.
2. I am equally as concerns for my mother safety and health as she has experienced falling episodes and is demonstrating - very significant signs of Wernicke Korsakoff syndrome
I fear that my mother needs to have her doctor admit her to the hospital for full evaluation of her current health status.
What can I do as a concerned daughter in this situation?
