Dementia and Knowing When to Quit Driving

One of the things greatly affected by a person’s dementia is his driving performance. If you are not sure about the right time to ask your elderly loved one to quit driving, here are a few pointers:
  • accompany them while driving and watch out for warning signs.
  • if he is still capable of driving, recommend simple adjustments to ensure his safety.
  • if he is no longer capable of driving safely, start the discussion about quitting in the early stages of his condition.
  • if he refuses to quit, consider taking him to the doctor for a medical evaluation, reporting his case to the DMV, or hiding his keys.
