Who Decides Whether I Should Still Be Driving?
Listen to the Audio: Who Decides Whether I Should Still Be Driving?
from: Longevity Explorers | Saratoga Retirement Community
The Explorer group responds to a controversial question: When should I stop driving in later years, and how should that be decided?
Members focus on how the decision should be made, and who should be involved in the decision. Viewpoints vary:
- Friend or Family Member
- Trusted Medical Practitioner
- Combination of above
Maintaining independence and freedom of travel emerge as the principal reasons to continue driving. The group reaches the conclusion that the crucial dynamic is balancing freedom vs. safety of self and others. All agree that an app for a confidential self-test of essential driving skills is a good idea and one they would use.
