One situation many seniors face, one that is soberingly important, is knowing when it’s time to turn in the keys. Losing a lifetime of “freedom behind the wheel” is a very hard topic to deal with, often requiring family input and sometimes, even a doctor’s intervention. As Illinois-based Snyder Village, a senior community, notes, “Certainly driving yourself does provide a source of transportation, but driving also provides independence. It is a way you can connect with others, and it provides a sense of identity. Driving gives you freedom and spontaneity to allow you to go wherever you want, whenever you want.” Still, safety must prevail – for you and others on the road.
