One-time session, 1.5 hours
Free education event intended for older adults, people living with MCI or 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 do I decide 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?
• Addressing the grief and loss that affects a whole family when driving stops.
