Do you think your older loved-one may be experiencing diminishing driving skills due to the aging process? Are they becoming lost in familiar places, bumping into curbs, mailboxes, or scraping the sides of the garage when they back out? Have they been involved in a minor parking lot fender-bender or do they complain about being honked at? Do they seem easily confused or more forgetful when you talk with them on the phone?
If so, don’t panic; you’re certainly not alone. The most important thing to remember is that the time to start addressing your concerns is now, before “concerns” turn into “tragedies”.
To help you do that, Keeping Us Safe has released its long awaited workbook titled “Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for the families of older drivers”. The workbook employs a very user-friendly, uncomplicated method and is designed to be used in the comfort and confidence of the family’s home.
“Beyond Driving with Dignity” was written to help families (or professionals working with families) by providing them with a “roadmap to success” in their quest to overcome the challenges of an older driver’s safety.
If driving restrictions or even a complete retirement from driving are deemed appropriate, the “Limit Driving, Not Living” chapter of the workbook helps the family identify and implement alternative means of transportation for the retiring driver.
