Safety Driving Tips for Elderly

a-1 home care altadena elder care

Driving safety is a must and should be taken into account as your body goes through physical changes with age. Slower reactions and stiffer muscles can increase your risk of facing a collision. Be sure to consult with your doctor about medical conditions and treatments. Conditions such as diabetes and arthritis can compromise your safety behind the wheel and certain medication can inhibit coordination.  Some tips in avoiding an accident include leaving space between you and the other car, driving without music, and refraining from driving at night or in bad weather. Also, regular eye and hearing check-ups should be maintained.
