What to Do When Dad Can’t Drive Anymore   iStock_000003033959XSmall

12:00 PM – 1:15 PM

Do you remember when you first got a driver’s license? It was both scary and exhilarating.

Over the years we have met with many children of aging parents who expressed concerns that Mom or Dad was still driving. This can be a big issue for both the kids and the parent. Children don’t know how to convince their parent that it is time to stop driving. They surely want to avoid a confrontation with their parent. And they understand that losing your license to drive is a big deal.

For the senior, giving up the car keys involves certain loss of freedom, and increased social isolation and dependency. We don’t want to burden relatives and friends every time we need to run an errand. And if we live in a rural area, we may have no other realistic transportation options. It’s no wonder that the thought of not being able to drive creates anxiety and depression.

Join Marshall, Parker & Weber and Kathy Fox, Coordinator for the Lackawanna County Highway Safety Program to learn about the changes we all face as we age and drive,  as well as how medications can affect our driving skills and ways you can talk to your aging family members about their driving with respect and dignity.
