Are You Driving Impaired Because You Are Old? Learn How To Decide

Toula's Tips For Caregivers

25-11-2019 • 30 mins

Are you scared every time your loved one gets behind the wheel of the car?

Are you sure there is something wrong? Are you ready to have “the talk”? Will you be able to do what is needed?

Let’s face the truth. Some seniors should not be driving any more. But it is so difficult for family to do anything about it.

My guest on this podcast, Matt Gurwell, CEO of Keeping Us Safe, LLC, can help you “have the talk”. He can help you to know whether your loved one should still be driving. He even created a comprehensive “Self-Assessment Program for Older Drivers” to objectively evaluate driving performance.

Matt knows why this is important. He is retired from a very distinguished and successful 24-year career as an Assistant District Commander with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. He says he started “Keeping Us Safe” because, “It was the result of 20-plus years of holding dying people in my arms at terrible car accidents, and delivering dozens and dozens of death notifications to families. I would much rather work with families to bring a peaceful resolve to this sensitive and uncomfortable issue now, rather than have them deal with it when a State Trooper is knocking on their front door".
