My Dad, (long distance) is 80, a severe alcoholic who refuses any kind of care, won't go to a primary care doctor because they give blood tests. (At least that is what we think the reason is). But he will go to his Urologist and Cardiologist.
I have heard that he smells like alcohol. I keep hoping something will happen that he gets treatment, even at this late stage. Why don't his specialists say anything to him? He has bruises all over his arms from falling and walking into things.
