Why Is Transportation
in Senior Living Needed?
The unfortunate truth is that our reflexes and eyesight slowly decline as we age. That means that getting behind the wheel can become more difficult for some seniors. Also, people with memory problems such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can present a danger to themselves or other motorists. When seniors aren’t able to drive anymore, they feel less independent, which can have a detrimental effect on their mental health.
