Ask the Counselor . . .

by SUSAN LAUTZ. LPC.

Dear Susan:
I think my grandmother is abusing her prescription pain pills. She used to be very sharp, but now she slurs her words and forgets who I am. She has also been falling a lot. I love this woman dearly. What, if anything, can I do?
Signed: Concerned Granddaughter.
Dear Granddaughter:
Not knowing how old your grandmother is and her general state of health, it is difficult for me to make many recommendations.
