The Older Driver

The Older Driver

Why do we address the older driver as a separate population of individuals with impairments that impact driving? New drivers tend to seek driver rehabilitation to determine if independent driving is a realistic goal. Often their parents ask the question so that they can plan for alternatives if driving is not a possibility. The older driver can be affected by a specific illness or injury, or may simply be affected by the cumulative effects of aging. Often, the older driver will not seek driver rehabilitation until they begin to exhibit behaviors that concern their friends or family. In this course, participants will learn to appreciate the effects of age-related changes and impairments that impact driving. Nathalie Drouin, OTR/L, CDI, CDRS, will demonstrate clinical and on-the-road assessments tailored for the driver with age related impairments.
