Webinar: Driving Under the Influence…of Dementia (for Friends / Families)

COST:  $10.00 / START TIME:  4:00p EDT

This program was designed for friends and families who are supporting someone living with dementia.

The right to drive is earned during adolescence for most people. It has a variety of social and fiscal responsibilities associated with it and allows the person a high degree of autonomy and independence. The symptoms of dementia gradually erode the person’s capacity for safe and effective vehicle maintenance and driving.  This session will focus on early indicators of risk and highlight the importance of addressing concerns in proactive and healthy ways rather than avoiding the topic or creating high risk situations.

Objectives:

Discuss common symptoms of dementia that impact ability to drive safely and effectively in challenging situations as well as routine journeys

Discuss the value of routine evaluation of ability combined with development of alternate plans for community mobility when dementia has been identified

Compare various approaches to discussion and conversations related to driving

Positive Approach now offers live webinar events for friends and families who are supporting their loved ones that are living with dementia.  These interactive events will focus on a specific topic and include open discussions with the group. 

Cost per session is $10.00.  Participants must register to attend.  Registration is limited.  Registration for the live events includes access to the recording of the webinar. Recordings will be released within a week of the live event. 

REGISTRATION FOR EACH EVENT WILL CLOSE 24 TO 48 HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT.
