        You’re obviously pro-ignorance. Alzheimer and Dementia are medical conditions that affect your cognitive abilities, not called “batchit crazy”

    I’m relieved that they were found safe. The original headline concerns me though. At first, I thought this was a story about a Halloween prank, when in fact, it had nothing to do with Halloween or a prank. This headline, along with another recent headline in the Hannah Graham case, (“buzzards” in bold, headline text), makes me wonder about, for lack of better words, the maturity of the WTVR newsroom.

    Keeping Us Safe is a national organization that provides practical, real-life solutions to older drivers and their families. Our programs are designed to help older drivers with diminished driving skills make a smooth transition from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat without deterioration to their dignity, personal pride or independence.

    “Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for older drivers and their families” serves as the foundation for the “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program. It is a ‘working’ workbook, designed to remove the family’s opinion, emotion and speculation from the challenging process of deciding whether or not a loved-one should continue or if, in the interest of safety, they need to retire from driving.

    We also offer our Certified “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professionals who have been specifically trained and certified in Keeping Us Safe’s “Enhanced Self-Assessment Program” for older drivers. With the 3-hour (in-person) self-assessment program, families benefit from a third-party, impartial intervention in resolving this very delicate and sensitive issue with their loved-one. Certified “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professionals can be found throughout the U. S. and Canada.

    Keeping Us Safe’s “self-assessment program” for older drivers has become a respected resource for physicians, hospital systems, and court systems looking for help for older drivers and their concerned families.
    Our programs are designed to save lives while helping to ease the burden of the family as they find themselves faced with this very challenging issue.
