A few weeks ago, we introduced our Let's Talk About Driving program to address an issue that is often very difficult – but necessary – for older adults and their families: when to stop or limit driving.
Today, we would like to bring your attention to some common warning signs that it may be time to start having tough conversations about driving.
If you know an older adult who is experiencing these issues, you may want to start by scheduling an independent evaluation at the DMV. From there, our Let's Talk About Driving program has lots of useful conversation starters and resources to help get the ball rolling. If you know a senior who has stopped or limited their driving, our professional CAREGivers are a great option for getting them to their appointments and around town.
For more information about ensuring older adults are able to age safely and successfully in place, please contact us!
