Let's Talk About Driving

Tuesday August 9th 11:00am
Let’s Talk about Driving? features a wealth of resources for older adults and their families. Whether they are still on the road or have chosen to give up their keys, having that conversation is a good first step. However research conducted by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® network, revealed that most people aren’t talking. Fear can keep families silent. Fortunately, there are many options out there, to keep seniors safely on the road longer as well as prevent isolation when they choose to give up driving. Sponsored by Home Instead
