The Road to Driving Wellness –
Wednesday, July 8
Co-sponsored by the Area Agency on Aging and the AARP Mature
Driver Safety Course.
Most seniors want to continue driving as long as possible. This
workshop is designed to help older drivers stay on the road,
safely. The Road to Driving Wellness focuses on teaching seniors
how to maintain their health for driving. You will learn about the
physical changes that occur with aging; changes that can affect
your body, physiology, and vision. Practical strategies will be
given on things that can be done to compensate for these changes,
and improve a senior’s ability to continue to drive. Topics covered
will include: How to assess your driving abilities, transportation
alternatives and resources, hints for choosing the right car for
maximum safety, guidelines for giving your vehicle, a “Car Fit”
review, light exercises to improve strength & range of motion,
and information on specialized safety equipment for autos
Note: The Driving Wellness Workshop does not allow for a
discount on your automobile insurance.
Time: 9:30-11:00 a.m. Cost: $8
Please sign-up in advance at the front desk.
