Two Austin caregivers conferences address Alzheimer’s, senior drivers
Parenting your parent or older loved one can be emotionally difficult. And one of the most difficult things is to know when to have the conversation around driving.
AGE of Central Texas has a cool class coming up to help caregivers have that conversation and know the warning signs. Megan Frazier, an occupational therapist and driver rehabilitation specialist, will give you techniques to figure out if your loved one is fit to drive and how to have the conversation.
“Driving Safety for Older Adults and Their Caregivers”
10 a.m. to noon March 7
AGE of Central Texas main campus, 3710 Cedar St.
