My M-in-law has Alzheimer's which was diagnosed a year ago. She is 80 and still lives in her own home independently, but with increasing family support. She has smoked since she was 15. She now smokes around 20 a day as she forgets -though tries to keep track of -how many she is lighting. We were setting up domiciliary care support for my M-in-law with people from the Care home she will go to as a resident, when the time comes. M-in-law really needs increasing support, and we want her to get to know people from the Care home before she eventually goes there. The care manager has now told us that they cannot send care workers into the house with a heavy smoker. She lives a very-low tech life, no computer, no mobile phone, and looking at Vaping on the internet, I don't think there's any hope of her getting the hang of it. Patches have been tried and failed in the past - her Alzheimer's medication is in patch form, and she was very suspicious of them at the beginning because she thought they were nicotine patches! If she can't cut down - or at least not smoke when they visit, we are going to struggle -and so will she! We're hoping her GP can help, but has anybody any experience of getting their PWA to cut down/quit?
