Driving is a huge part of our lives, especially around Southern California where we drive almost everywhere. But for your elderly parents, it might be time to take away their car keys for good as their driving abilities do diminish. While there is no doubt that many seniors can drive safely, the chances of them getting seriously hurt in a car accident is definitely higher than for those who are younger. Here are a few signs that should serve as a warning that this talk needs to happen sooner rather than later. For example, those with a decline in visions may have increased sensitivity to sunlight and headlights. Hearing loss can also contribute to a more dangerous driving experience. Other factors include various diseases, such as Dementia and Parkinson’s, that could impair their abilities to pay attention to the road, as well as medications with side effects that may hinder their driving performance. It is best to sit down with your loved ones to discuss this situation, because taking away an independence is never easy.
