What are your thoughts about driving and dementia? We would love to hear from you.  In fact, tomorrow is Open Mic on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio if you would like to call in or use the chat box to talk with us.

Check out a two hour special we did on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio on the topic of driving and dementia.  We had Doctors, Insurance specialists, people diagnosed with dementia and their care partners all having a lively discussion about driving and dementia.  Several people reached out to me after this airing saying their minds were forever changed that day.  Learn about the ideas shared on how to handle this touchy subject.

  1. It’s always so interesting to get a glimpse into these challenging situations. As we know, driving is one to the passionate conversations that occur when talking about someone with dementia. At a recent AARP event, I discovered an after-market collision avoidance product. The device, which installed runs about $1,200, can be installed on practically any modern car. While there is no 100% solution for any of the challenges associated with dementia, this device should be able to add a level of safety and create some peace-of-mind for the caregiver. I’m currently researching and writing an article about the product. But what seems possible is that the decision making and response time of a person with dementia may not affect their driving.
