Unhealthy & unsafe environment, & lack of nutrition. My friend and I were best of friends in our school days. We have stayed in touch. I don't live near enough to check in daily. Both my friend and her husband are alcoholics, & chain smokers. Friend uses walker and was hospitalized with pneumonia 6 mos ago. Almost died. Currenly she receives meals on wheels. Husband won't eat them. Friend eats them but not enough throuout the day. Both are under weight and have balance issues. Friend can't go outside without assistance so stays indoors in filth. Plus stairs to front door are too step for her to use. Very steep for most people. They both barely survive on social security. My friend depends on her husband to do most. She is also incontinent. House smells, carpet is wet with urine. Papers, garbage in piles & clothes in piles hinder movement and make it difficult to get to kitchen. Her husband has some dementia. Neither drive. Husband walks blocks to store on occasion usually when in need of wine or cigs. They need someone to take care of them but will deny their need. Very frustrating. They have no family left. All deceased. One cousin lives a few cities away but commutes to Frisco for work therefore visits are infrequent. She helps when she can. What is available for this couple who have sunk to the bottom in despair. They not only need assistance physically & emotionally but need to willfully make some changes in regards to alcohol abuse. Who can I contact for help? Would I call adult protective services?
