Losing My Independence: Driving and Aging

For most adults, driving a car means independence. As we age, changes in our vision, hearing, physical functioning, and cognition may make driving not only more difficult but unsafe.  Unless parents experience a sudden decline, however, these changes occur gradually and may not be noticed by the aging driver.  This program will address the warning signs of driving impairment in aging adults, suggest evaluation strategies, present transportation alternatives and present scenarios for discussing driving with our parents. This program will:

  1. Identify warning signs of driving impairment in aging adults
  2. Identify and use strategic resources for evaluating driving
  3. Discuss non-driving transportation alternatives and
  4. Discuss driving and non-driving with your parents.

 

Program Presenter: Tracy Stoltz, OTR/L, Director of Therapy Operations, Encompass Health
