Videos – Dementia and Driving & DDDA

Driving gives us freedom, flexibility, and independence. Although one day we all need to step out from behind the wheel, conditions such as dementia may mean that the decision to retire from driving needs to be planned and made earlier than expected.

Dementia can cause loss of memory, limited concentration, and problems with vision and insight. This affects a person’s judgement and ability to drive safely. The experience of giving up driving can be very difficult for many people, and the sense of grief and loss can be ongoing.

For quality of life and wellbeing, it’s vital to consider and plan the ways that a person living with dementia and their families and carers can stay mobile, active and socially connected in the transition to non-driving.

These videos are designed to assist you in deciding when to stop driving after a diagnosis of dementia. It is hoped that early planning for retirement from driving will avoid the need to stop suddenly in the future.
