I am the caregiver for my grandmother who is diagnosed with dementia and is in denial of her alcoholism. She used to drink a beer or two, sometimes three, daily. But now there are days that she goes through a whole 6-pack (mind you, she is about 95lbs), and when she asks me to pick her up another I don't want to say no because I feel like she's already had so much taken from her, I can't take more away. But is it really harmless at this point? I do feel guilty about it, and know that the 'right' thing is to technically not give her any alcohol. Is there a better way that I can make sure she doesn't drink them all at once? It is not something that we can talk about because she has dementia so none of this makes sense to her, and she has never admitted to being an alcoholic, even before the dementia set in. Any suggestions to reduce my daily beer runs to maybe weekly runs?
