Driving Decisions

October 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:15 pm



It’s a fact that people get older every day. With increasing age come changes in physical, mental and sensory abilities that can challenge a person’s continued ability to drive safely. One of the more difficult issues facing older adults, their families, friends, and health care providers is how to accurately identify when driving is unsafe, and what to do about it.
