Monday, December 5 - Friday, December 9, 12:00 am
Older Driver Safety Awareness Week highlights the vital role that mobility and transportation play to keep older adults active in their communities. The observance recommends that during the first week in December, loved ones of older drivers express concern for their safety.
HOW TO OBSERVE #OlderDriverSafetyAwarenessWeek
This is the perfect week to talk to your aging loved one about driver safety. Take a ride with them in the vehicle to ensure they are driving safely. If you notice them struggling as they drive, talk to them to see what they can do differently. Maybe all they need is to have their eyeglass prescription updated. Or they might need to make some adaptations to their vehicle. If necessary, you can advise them to take a driver improvement course specifically designed for older drivers.
