This presentation was designed for family members, caregivers and loved ones of senior drivers.
This is a 1-hour group presentation was developed to help members of the baby-boomer generation when they become concerned about a loved one’s ability to drive safely as a result of the natural aging process. We provide a roadmap to help families address the issue with tact, compassion, and empathy, so that the older driver’s dignity and independence is never unnecessarily jeopardized.
Developed specifically for senior drivers, this 1-hour presentation for your group or organization can best be described as a practical, entertaining and realistic approach to the issue of “senior drivers Vs. the aging process”.
This presentation is not meant to be another safe-driving or driver-refresher 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.
Our presentation takes a direct yet compassionate approach to the very sensitive subject of recognizing that someday it may be time to relinquish some of that treasured driving independence. 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.
This 1-hour Continuing Education presentation focuses on the role dementia, memory and executive functioning play on older driver safety. The presentation is supported by current-day, real-life examples as well as academic studies that confirm the correlation between cognitive decline and older driver safety.
This 1-hour Continuing Education presentation provides attendees with the skills and competencies necessary to help an individual (and their concerned family members) with age-related diminished driving skills make a smooth transition into a driving retirement, with minimal deterioration to the individual’s dignity or independence.
