Can someone with dementia have any alcohol?
My mom is 96 and has been in frail care for about two months now. This followed two months in hospital with critically low levels of sodium and potassium and heart-related problems. She is too frail for surgery and is on medication for thyroid, hypertension and high blood pressure. When I bring her out for a visit or celebration, is it safe to give her alcohol? So far I have only given her non-alcoholic apple flavoured "beer". She used to enjoy a glass of wine or a weak whiskey.
