Do you worry that a loved one’s diminished driving skills is putting them at risk?

This presentation was developed specifically for older adult drivers, and can best be described as a practical, entertaining, and realistic approach to the issue of "senior drivers vs. the aging process." Our speakers will take 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 for older drivers but to offer suggestions about how to recognize and compensate for diminishing skills so that our treasured elders can all remain on the roadways as safe drivers. 

Registration is required. To save your place, call 707.776.6055.
