Dad was given a weak alcohol based drink, and snacks were provided. When I arrived to take him home, he was obviously intoxicated: unsteady gait, loss of balance, slurred speech. Apparently this was a problem from the beginning of him taking Namenda, when mom was his caregiver, she told me she made him promise not to drink. Even hid the liquor. She has died, and I am now his caregiver.
