Safe Driving – In Person, Lane County

Join us for an informative afternoon learning about adaptive aids for driving. Kathy Morgan, Certified Mobility Specialist, will provide tools to keep you and your loved ones safe on the road. This event is in person only.

Driving is a complex task that demands full attention and a composed state of mind. While experience can make drivers better and safer, normal aging can introduce changes that diminish a person’s safety on the road.

Drivers over 65 are twice as likely to have a medical condition that impairs their driving abilities. In Parkinson’s disease (PD), issues such as slowed reaction time, freezing episodes, limited head and neck mobility, and vision changes are common reasons to initiate the conversation about a driving solution.
