Elderly loved ones who may have problems with driving won’t need to lose their independence because Aged Care Sydney can arrange for alternate transportation. There are several recommendations which include arrangements where family and friends can drive ,or use of public transport. Taking taxis or services like Uber along with booking a private car for a few hours per week should ensure that the senior citizen doesn’t end up feeling socially isolated.
It is up to the doctor’s discretion and they may elect to have your elderly loved one undergo an occupational therapy driving test which can determine if any medical condition or, disability impacts their fitness to drive. You may also need to talk to your elderly loved one in case they are not safe to drive anymore.
Aged Care Sydney offers services and help during this period of adjustment where the ability to drive or, their car is taken away from your elderly loved ones.
