One-time session, 1.5 hours
Free education event intended for older adults, people living with dementia and their family and friends.
Presented in partnership with Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners.
Using the new Driving and Dementia Roadmap*, which is a website providing information and tools to guide the driving and dementia journey, we’ll review:
- How will I know when it’s time to retire from driving?
- How do we talk about this as a family?
- What are the warning signs that driving is getting risky?
- What should I know about driving and dementia in Ontario?
- What are the obligations of health care professionals to report to the Ministry of Transportation?
- I disagree with the medical report made and decision of the Ministry of Transportation. How can I keep my driver’s license?
- Addressing the grief and loss that affects a whole family when the person with dementia stops driving.
- Living life without driving
