If the decision has been made to start the discussion about limiting or stopping driving, take time to think about the meaning of driving from the older driver’s perspective. Also, look into community resources for driving evaluation and remediation in your community, as well as strategies for driving reduction.
It’s important to start this conversation before a crash or other crisis forces the conversation. Families are relieved by knowing that there is a plan and the older driver may be relieved that there are options and they are not forced to continue driving.
At the end of the day this is about safety, and you want the older driver to be safe and keep others safe.
