Driving demands quick reaction time and fast decision making — because of this, a person with Alzheimer’s will eventually become unable to drive. Dealing with the issue early on can help ease the transition.
Having the conversation
Losing the independence driving provides can be upsetting. It is important to acknowledge a person’s feelings and preserve his or her independence, while ensuring the person’s safety and the safety of others. You can get the information and support you need from the Alzheimer’s Association.
