What are some clues to look for to know when someone should stop driving and how to get them to stop clues to look for getting lost and not being able to find the way home dents and dings in the car or the garage problem using turn signals or using the wrong turn signal problems reading and interpreting traffic signs driving at inappropriate speeds – too fast in town and too slow otherwise confusing the brake and accelerator pedals turning too sharply and hitting the curb locking the keys in the car loosing the car in the parking lot

Try: It may help to have a figure of authority to speak on your behalf with the Care recipient (cr) ; a physician or a friend have a mechanic disable the vehicle so it can’t be driven hide the keys sometimes even after the cr stops driving it may give them comfort to still have the car around or it may disturb them to see the car in the driveway or garage – fine out which works and implement it
