The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) is celebrating Older Driver Safety Awareness Week from December 6 to 12, 2009.
Older Driver Safety Awareness Week (December 6–12, 2009) aims to promote understanding of the importance of mobility and transportation to ensuring older adults remain active in the community—shopping, working or volunteering—with the confidence that transportation will not be the barrier to strand them at home.
Throughout the week, AOTA will bring attention to a different aspect of older driver safety:
Monday, December 7: Family Conversations
Tuesday, December 8: Screening/Evaluations
Wednesday, December 9: Driving Equipment/Adaptations
Thursday, December 10: Taking Changes in Stride
Friday, December 11: Life After Driving
