Is It Safe for My Elderly Parents to Still Drive?

Elderly Parents & Driving

"Should I be concerned that my aging parents are still driving?"

It depends. How old are your parents? Sometimes the central issue is not even about a person’s calendar age, but it is about his or her health. When a person is healthy and active later in life, he or she generally can drive for a longer time than someone who is sickly and taking medications.

Unfortunately, seniors are often on medications due to their health conditions, which can also affect their driving and can cause accidents. Medications can make people disoriented and sleepy behind the wheel. It is a good idea to find out what medications your parents take and the side effects.

If the drugs they are taking could cause confusion, dizziness or tiredness, it is a good idea to talk with your aging parents about alternative methods of transportation for their own safety and for the safety of other motorists sharing the roads with them.

Many analysts have indicated that because the Baby Boom generation has begun turning 65, there will be a greater number of older motorists on the roads than ever. It is predicted that more seniors are mobile, active, and healthy than ever before – and enjoy car travel more, too.

This information could be great news for seniors and for their families. However, there will still be some dangerous elderly drivers who should not be on the road due to failing vision and health.
