Keeping Older Adults On The Go

Improving Driver Safety & Where To Turn When Driving is No Longer an Option

Talking to loved ones about whether or not they should continue driving is not easy. Many older adults don’t recognize declining abilities, or fear they’ll lose their independence. Come learn how to help someone make the decision to stop driving, hear how brain exercises can improve driving skills, and discover community alternatives to driving. Bring your questions for our panel of experts! This free event is open to the entire community.
