Families slowly transition their teenagers into driving, but most likely don’t think about transitioning their older loved ones out of driving. As a result, the decision to give up the car keys often is the result of a crisis—an accident or another unfortunate incident. This web seminar can help senior care professionals educate families about the importance of developing a plan to help an older adult move out of the driver’s seat while remaining engaged with their friends, family and community.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Provide suggestions that would help an older adult transition out of driving before a crisis occurs;
  • Offer a new way of thinking about transportation—dispelling the notion that there are no other options; and,
  • Share solutions and resources to help seniors remain active and engaged after giving up their car keys.

Presenter:

Lakelyn Hogan is currently working toward a Master of Arts in Social Gerontology. Lakelyn’s passion for helping others has led her work with aging adults and their families as they navigate the senior care continuum.
