Driving is important to all of us for many reasons. As we grow older, it often represents independence. Being able to maintain driving skills makes older adults feel as if they are still in charge of their daily lives. But there are some inevitable changes aging causes that make driving more challenging.
Arthritis can make it difficult to pull a seat belt closed. Hip problems can make it tough to enter and exit the vehicle. The good news is that there are driving aids that can help prevent a senior from hanging up the keys.
Here are a few tools the team at Five Star Senior Living has found that might help the older driver you love stay safe.
