I recently participated in a family intervention to convince my mother that it is no longer safe for her to drive. My mom’s dementia is in early stages, but is interfering with some abilities. She was defensive and insisted it was a problem with the car, not her. But she finally agreed to let my father drive her to all appointments and other outings. My dad admits to being in denial for many months, but is now ready to step up his caregiver responsibilities.
This is a difficult time for any family. The Alzheimer’s Association a great resource with so much practical advise. I recommend it to all who have loved ones experiencing dementia of any kind.
Here’s the link with advice to address concerns about a loved one who is no longer able to drive safely.
