Keeping Us Safe Announces the "Beyond Driving with Dignity" Professional Certification Program

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 7, 2012 - (Los Angeles, CA) – Keeping Us Safe, a national organization based in Cleveland, Ohio will be holding its inaugural west coast “Beyond Driving with Dignity’ training and certification course for professionals in the greater Los Angeles area on March 1, 2012.  

This is the first time the course has been offered in California.      

The certification program has been designed to provide professionals with the additional tools necessary to help older drivers and their families work through the complicated issue of diminishing driving skills caused by the aging process.    

Matt Gurwell, Founder & CEO of Keeping Us Safe explains that the “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professional Certification program is not built around the premeditated goal of “taking the keys away” from an older driver.  

Gurwell explains “the program is designed to help the older driver and concerned family members make appropriate decisions on the future of the individual’s safe driving career.  It is true that in certain circumstances, this may involve assisting the older driver in making a smooth and permanent transition from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat.”

The certification program is based on Keeping Us Safe’s self-assessment program for older drivers, along with their recently published “Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for the families of older drivers”.

When asked what prompted the development of the Beyond Driving with Dignity program, Gurwell (a retired Ohio State Trooper) explains "It was the result of 20-plus years of holding dying people in my arms at terrible car accidents, and delivering dozens and dozens of death notifications to families. I would much rather work with families to bring a peaceful resolve to this sensitive and uncomfortable issue now, rather than have them deal with it when a State Trooper is knocking on their front door".

In addition to Newport Beach, this unique certification program is also being offered in Tampa, Seattle, Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, Toronto and Denver.
