Hi-I was wonderin if anybody could tell a lil bit about alcohol dementia. My aunt who is an alcolohic is 49 yrs old and drinks when she wakes up and dont stop until she is sleeping. Shes showing signs of what I think is alcohol dementia. I looked it up online and it described her to a T. But Im wonderin if theres more to know about it. She is horribly unhealthy the dr. has already told her that her liver is in horrible shape and if she dont quit then shes going to get cirrosis. She hasnt slacked off any and she also pops xanax that arent prescribed for her and she has seizures as a result. But everyday we see a detiration of her personality. Shes starting to hallucinate,she said she saw her small brown dog and thought it was their full grown horse! Saw a squirrel and thought it was a cow. That just a lil of it. She has horrible mood swings-cant remember telling us stuff and repeats herself non stop and asks the same questions over and over again. This is my moms only sister and she is getting tired of worrying about her so much. Im afraid its goin to be the death of my Mom. My aunt is married but her husband is also and alcoholic and he works out of town and is only in a short period of time. We are all neighbors in the area,and we dread it when we see her coming to our houses. Something has to be done. We just dont know what to do. Can someone please help....any suggestions out there? An intervention I dont think will work since her husband is also and alcoholic...they do not want help to stop drinking and dont think its a problem.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
