Senior driving typically focuses on the threat older drivers pose to other drivers on the road, but we should also look at the threat to older adults behind the wheel. This is another way to help family caregivers have the important conversation with their elder loved ones about giving up the keys and finding safer ways to get around.
Did you know that SYNERGY HomeCare can help take older drivers off the road by having our professional caregivers do the driving for them? We provide transportation services for our clients. Our transportation service can include errands, shopping, doctor's appointments, etc. to help get your loved one around town safely.
For many older drivers, giving up the car keys is a drastic and life-altering change -- limiting where they can live, whom they can visit, and what interests and activities they can pursue. Let us help them maintain their independence, by driving for them! Here is a guide you might find helpful if you are struggling with the driving issue for your love ones. If you have questions, please call us anytime.
