The Coming Tsunami

What are we going to do when we get old and can’t drive? As a community we should prepare now for the “aging tsunami.”

Here’s an article from a woman who had to deal with her aging parents and their inability to drive.
“My dad unfortunately had the mindset that driving himself in his own car was the only possible way to get anywhere. By being “independent” about his transportation he eliminated the independence he could have had.

I felt sorry for him. For Dad it was a steering wheel in his hands or nothing at all. So it was nothing at all.”

There are different ways to be independent.
