Beyond Driving with Dignity, a program of Deaconess Full Life, is a valuable tool in helping older drivers (and their families) make appropriate decisions regarding the future of one's safe driving career. If the individual is a safe driver, the program provides him or her with strategies on how to remain a safe driver as they progress through the aging process. If driving retirement is the appropriate decision, then the individual (and their family) will receive information about acceptable transportation alternatives to ensure a smooth and successful transition from the driver's seat to the passenger's seat.
Nancy Schuster, Executive Director ITNGreaterCincinnati (another Deaconess FullLife initiative) has been certified as a Beyond Driving with Dignity Professional and is available to facilitate these self assessments. She can also assist with educating caregivers through educational programs. For more information, to schedule a self-assessment or presentation call 513-559-2856.
