Using the new Driving and Dementia Roadmap*, which is a website providing information and tools to guide the driving and dementia journey, we’ll review:
How will I know when it’s time to retire from driving
How do we talk about this as a family?
What are the warning signs that driving is getting risky?
What should I know about driving and dementia in Ontario?
What are the obligations of health care professionals to report to the Ministry of Transportation?
I disagree with the medical report made and decision of the Ministry of Transportation. How can I keep my driver’s license?
Addressing the grief and loss that affects a whole family when the person with dementia stops driving.
Living life without driving
*The Driving and Dementia Roadmap was developed by researchers who are part of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging which is supported by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research with funding from several partners.
