My partner has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and has been having memory issues for some time. She has always had a couple of glasses of wine every evening but in the last six months regularly forgets how much she has drunk and continues to pour herself more. I know this sounds simple -don't have drink in the house. I still have to work and during the day she buys bottles from our local shops. It leads to arguments if I suggest in the evening she has had too much and she insists on going to one of the shops for more. The alcohol then makes her condition worse as she becomes more disoriented and fearful of her surroundings I don't drink so there is no need to have wine in the house. I don't want to stop her having the freedom to buy things but this is becoming increasingly difficult to manage. The GP can offer no solution other than removing her purse - I tried this but it led to hours of pointless searching as she knew something should be there but couldn't locate it. Does anyone have experience of managing this very difficult situation?
