Where can I get help for my drinking problem if I have Alzheimer's disease?
Need help with azlheimers & drinking alcohol. What are the consequences of 3 or 4 glasses of wine with dinner?
Some substances are known to cause dementia, including alcohol (alcohol-related dementia.) On the other hand, a little wine can be a good thing. Red wine in particular is a good source of anti-oxidants. One glass with dinner is recommended for your health. However, 3 or 4 glasses is probably a bit too much, whether or not a person has Alzheimer's. If you're on medication, you'll want to avoid harmful interactions. If you want to get help to cut back, AA is probably still a good bet, even with your dementia.
Can they just have a glass of grape juice instead? I'm having a problem with the way this was answered.It sounds like you want the alcholic to keep drinking.
