Driving and Dementia

Event Date: November 19th, 2020

There are safety concerns associated with dementia and driving and how/when a fitness-to-drive assessment is done. Age-associated changes and other medical conditions like dementia can affect our abilities to drive safely. Driving is a very complicated skill, and people with even mild cognitive impairment may not be able to drive safely.
