It’s one of the toughest—but ultimately most important—conversations you may ever have with your aging mom, dad or other relative: how to know when it’s time to hand over the keys?
At Liberty Mutual, we believe the best way to help preserve seniors’ mobility and safety is to have frank conversations about the pros and cons associated with driving as an older person. At the same time, we believe in providing viable alternatives so that giving up one’s car needn’t mean giving up one’s independence. We developed our National Conversation Drive to encourage careful and honest conversations about safe senior driving while also helping family members understand the challenges their older relatives face.
Visit Liberty Mutual’s Senior Driving site to pledge your conversation, read successful conversations other families have had and find out the best ways to initiate the conversation. For every discussion held, we’ll donate a ride to ITNAmerica, a nonprofit organization that offers affordable rides to seniors across the country. You can also play our Driver Seat game, a series of interactive video shorts that help simulate what it’s like to drive, park, and explore urban areas while experiencing the physical and cognitive effects age can have on driving abilities. After all, the best conversations often start with a mutual understanding.
