In Home Health and Hospice care, we are on the road every day making visits to our patients' homes. Our nurses, therapists, social worker, chaplain and home care aides travel thousands of miles each year. When we are on the road, safe driving is always on our minds and a number one priority. With the warmer weather finally here again and more people out and about driving, it's a good time to share some tips to help older adults and their families understand how aging affects driving. Keep in mind, age alone shouldn't be the only factor when determining driving safety; changes in vision, physical fitness or reflexes also are important influences to consider.
