Conversations About Dementia and Driver Safety for the Aging Driver
Part 1 – Dementia Conversations: Driving, Doctor Visits, Legal & Financial Planning
When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable. This program provides tips for breaking the ice with your family so you can address some of the most common issues that are difficult to discuss: going to the doctor for a diagnosis or medical treatment, deciding when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans for future care.
Part 2 – Driver Safety and the Aging Driver
Hear ideas for safe, prolonged driving independence from the local DMV Senior Driver Ombudsman. Topics will include: driver license renewal strategies, DMV criteria for evaluation of Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive or physical impairments, and how your health is closely connected to your driving.
