She is now (she tells me herself) falling down, not eating. Not eating well, lonely (her partner & both dogs, passed away) can't walk much, has to take cabs to go out. A sister in law says she has seen a Dr who has told her to stop drinking, but she (sister) doesn't say that she has. Will an AL place let her apply to live there or let her move in without the drinking getting under control? If she were in would she have access to liquor, or get to a liquor store? It seems evident that if she stays in her condo by herself she'll have a short lifespan based on falling, not eating & drinking too much. What can we family members do to steer her in a healthier direction? I just thought of getting her to get an "I've fallen and I can't get up" necklace. Other ideas?
