About the Event

While many older adults value the independence of driving, changes that happen with age may alter a person’s ability to drive safely. It’s quite possible that an 80-year-old in perfect health can drive safely without posing a threat to oneself or other drivers on the road, while a 60-year-old with impaired vision and a medical condition that affects their motor skills may indeed need to stop driving.

Some of the topics that will be discussed are:

  • What factors can affect driving as you age and signs of when it may be time to stop driving?
  • What are your options when you no longer drive?
  • How does giving up your license affect your family?
  • Are there resources or therapies for those wanting to be proactive to keep driving?

Please join us for this 90 minute seminar and take advantage of the information

that will be shared by local experts who deal with these situations every day.

Please share this gift of education by inviting a friend.
