We Need to Talk - Family Conversations with Older Drivers
Need help having "the talk" with a loved one? Sponsored by AARP Driver Safety, this class guides families in determining when it's time for their loved one to hang up the keys.
The seminar offers practical tips and advice on three main topics:
The Meaning of Driving - Find out what driving means to older adults and the emotions they may face when having to give it up.
Observing Driving Skills - Learn to observe your loved one's driving skills objectively and talk about alternatives to driving.
Planning Conversations - Discover how to have "the talk" while encouraging independence. It's a difficult conversation to initiate, but with the right tools, you can really make a difference in the life of an older driver.
Presented by Mr. Denis Driscoll - past state coordinator of the "We Need to Talk" program.
This program will take place in the Gaier Room of the Main Library, 201 S. Fountain Avenue, Springfield, OH. Please call (937) 328-6903 for more information.
