Initiating THE conversation

And no, I’m not talking about sex.

I’m talking about the conversation that might need to take place with your loved one about giving up their car keys.

In this society it is one of the most traumatic life events that can happen to an individual, especially one who has been driving a car their entire life.

Having that conversation is very difficult. Here is an article that can help you with this process. And it is a process whereby you will need to observe your loved one for a while to ascertain their ability to drive safely.

If someone needs a refresher course AARP offers safe driving classes locally. The next class will be February 12 & 13 at the Homer Senior Center. Folks need to call the Cortland County Health Department at 758-5524 to register.

Giving up driving is difficult but there are ways to get around. Check out our website for more information.
