Driving Under the Influence…of Dementia: Discussion with Professionals (Recorded Webinar)
This recorded webinar addresses the issue of driving when dementia is involved. Explore the social and fiscal rights and responsibilities, such as a high degree of autonomy and independence, that have long been associated with the right to drive. As the symptoms of dementia gradually erode an individual’s capacity for safe and effective vehicle maintenance and driving, learn about how to recognize early indicators for risk. Also, explore the importance of addressing concerns about driving in proactive and healthy ways rather than avoiding the topic or creating situations of high risk.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Recognize the reasons that people living with dementia may be resistant to giving up the right to drive
- Identify early indicators for risk in driving and vehicle maintenance
- Describe healthy and effective ways to address driving concerns with those living with dementia
