Help for Families and Caregivers

How should you talk to older adults about driving?

The best time to talk about driving is before there is a problem. Ask "What if?" questions. What if you start feeling unsafe driving? What if I start feeling you are unsafe driving? What if you limit your driving? What if you stop driving?

If you need help, talk to a friend with an older relative or a caregivers' support group. Other family members and your loved one's doctor can also be helpful.

What are signs that an older driver should stop driving?

  • Forgetting to buckle seatbelt.
  • Failing to obey stop signs or traffic lights.
  • Driving too slow or too fast.
  • Getting lost often.
  • Failing to stay in his or her lane.
  • Reacts slowly.
