Dementia & Driving

June 15, 2023

In the early stages some people are able to keep driving, but as memory and decision-making skills decline they need to stop. What makes this especially hard is that people with dementia often do not know they are having driving problems! Family and friends need to monitor the person’s driving ability to decide when it’s time to give up the keys. Learn more about driving assessments and other options to keep everyone safe on the road.
