Senior Moment Update: Adverse Reactions to Drugs and Alcohol

On this Senior Moment Update, Ruth Kershner, LCSW-C and Long Term Care Ombudsman discusses the changes that can happen as you age. For a variety of reasons, these changes can cause long time behaviors and habits to easily turn into a problem. You need to pay attention to what you or a loved one is ingesting.
