How do you know when it's time for your loved one to limit or stop driving? It’s a tough subject for most families, but it's a serious matter. Now there's help.

And since it's online, you can set your own pace.

This seminar offers practical tips and advice in three simple modules. Each module includes a short video, printable worksheets, practice activities and an interactive review. In addition, lots of additional free resources are provided.
