We offer three different presentations to provide knowledge, advice, and reassurance to those that need it or maybe didn't know they needed it. I can come to your community center, church, senior group, support group, or anywhere you else you may need me! Call today for more information: 330-869-0806
The Aging Driver
This presentation is not meant to be another safe-driving program (seniors have seen them all by now!) but rather it is designed to increase awareness concerning the onset of diminishing driving skills related to the aging process. The ultimate goal is not to take away driving opportunities of older drivers, but rather to offer suggestions on how to recognize and compensate for diminishing skills so that our seniors may remain on the roadways as safe drivers.
Driving with Dementia
Dementia leads to the loss of independence in many areas of a person's life. Losing the ability to drive is often one of the biggest hits to a person's ego. Dementia affects everyone differently and at different rates. Many believe driving privileges need to be revoked immediately after diagnosis, but that is rarely the case. In this presentation both the driver and family can learn what signs to look for, how to handle this change in lifestyle appropriately, and how to plan for the new normal.
Adults with Aging Parent Drivers
We provide a road map to help families address the issue of their loved one's driving with tact, compassion, and empathy, so that the older driver's dignity and independence is never unnecessarily jeopardized. We will discuss when and how to approach the conversation, what the next steps are, and what to do if the conversation does not go well. This is a great opportunity to vent your frustrations and learn a new approach.
