Driving is an important activity for enabling participation in community life. Age-associate changes and medical conditions such as Dementia can affect the ability to drive safely. This presentation focuses how Alzheimer’s disease or Dementia effects the ability to drive and on the evaluation process to assess fitness-to-drive. Supporting drivers who are no longer safe and their families is also briefly addressed.
