Driving Safely for a Lifetime
For questions about whether a loved one is driving safely, or ideas on how to initiate constructive conversations with loved ones around the driving issue, see We Need to Talk: Family Conversations with Older Drivers (pdf). AARP has also used these materials to develop a brief seminar targeted toward adult children of older drivers around this issue. Contact AARP at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out where these seminars may be available in your area.
To learn more about whether a personalized driving evaluation, conducted by an occupational therapist with specialized training, is right for you or for a loved one, see Your Road Ahead: A Guide to Comprehensive Driving Evaluations (pdf).
