My mother is 75. She was diagnosed three months ago with Alzheimer's. I have moved home to help my father care for her, and during the day, other than some forgetfulness, she is quite normal. However, she has always had a couple of drinks in the evening, tho not usually enough to change her personality or behaviour. Now, she drinks more, starts earlier and sneaks drinks. Her psychiatrist (in charge of drug treatment, not so far any therapy) has said that she should be allowed to drink what she is accustomed to and we should try to slowly wean her to less, and that any drastic "cutting off" would be more harmful than beneficial. I am brand new to this, way over my head and really want to do what's best. Anyone have any experience with this? I would so appreciate some help!
