Driving

For many older adults, having their driver’s license is a last straw of independence they can still hold on to. It’s not always necessarily that they need the car to go somewhere every day; it’s having that option. Once they are told they can no longer drive, they can become isolated in their homes. They do not want to ask a loved one for a ride because they feel that they are a bother to everyone else, or that their loved ones have better things to do than drive them around. Luckily, there is a better way to have this conversation so that some feelings are spared and it doesn’t catch anyone by surprise.
