"Seniors & Driving: Balancing Safety and the Need to Stay Independent" workshop scheduled
NASHUA – Do you worry about a relative or loved one who is still driving after a diagnosis of a medical or cognitive complication? Do you need ways to initiate a productive conversation with an older driver about driving safety? Do you know the warnings signs that would help you determine when driving should stop?
Learn the answers to these and other important questions about the need to balance safety considerations with an elderly driver’s sense of independence, pride, and control at the November Seniors Count-Nashua workshop scheduled for Tuesday, November 13 at the Nashua Senior Activity Center.
