Many of us worry about the safety of our parents or other aging relatives when they are driving.

Some of us refuse to get in a car with an aging relative for our own safety! Is driving ability related to age? Are there some illnesses or disabilities that limit our ability to drive safely? Susan Sofer, occupational therapist, discusses driving capacity and how it is evaluated and provides examples of high risk behaviours that should be of a concern to family members. Susan offers tips on how to discuss your concerns with your aging relatives and resources for intervention are provided. For more information you can contact Susan Sofer at www.actdriving.com.
