Event Details

For older adults, limiting driving presents practical problems and can cause strong emotions, from sadness to anger. Family members themselves may feel angry, frustrated, or guilty about depriving their loved one of the freedom of driving. Despite these concerns, family members and older drivers alike prefer to keep these conversations ”in the family.” The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc., and the MIT AgeLab developed information to help families initiate productive and caring conversations with older adults about driving safety.

AARP offers a forum, We Need to Talk, for families who want to learn about a multi-step approach to crafting candid, effectual discussions about driving safety, from positive conversation starters to advice on which family member should broach the topic. The forum also features an important warning signs checklist; strategies for alternative transportation; testing opportunities; a transportation cost worksheet to determine the annual expense to own and operate a car; and recommendations on what to do if a parent or friend has dementia or a high-risk driver refuses to stop driving.

This educational opportunity is co-hosted by Mark Berg and the Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce.

Bring your own lunch. Street parking is available or you can use the Race Horse Alley Parking Garage.
