Welcome to Our
"Family Empowerment Session"
This 1-hour in-person session takes place with the concerned family members and is
facilitated by one of Keeping Us Safe's Certified "Beyond Driving with Dignity" Professionals.
Who is this session for?
This session is ideal for the family that believes they can handle this very delicate, sensitive and sometimes emotional issue with their loved one on their own, but would appreciate some direction, guidance, support and encouragement on how to handle the discussion with their parent.
How will this session help my family?
During the session, our specially-trained facilitator will further educate and empower you to handle the issue of your loved one's driving future, whether it's restrictions to their driving or complete driving cessation. Successful application of this service will keep the driving issue from causing turmoil in your family over the issue of your loved one's driving future.
The session empowers concerned family members to address the issue of a driving retirement with their loved one in a compassionate yet firm manner. The program empowers you to proceed in a manner that will help your loved one maintain his or her personal pride, dignity and independence through one of life's most difficult transitions.
What tool is used as the foundation for this session?
"Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for the families of older drivers" serves as the foundation for this 1-hour session. Your facilitator will provide you with a guided tour of the workbook and will build your confidence in the use and application of the workbook. Doing so will help keep your family from making many of the common mistakes encountered by others as you move toward a possible driving retirement for your loved one.
Your facilitator will listen closely as you describe your situation and will then direct you to key sections in the workbook applicable to your particular situation.
