The “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professional Certification program has been designed to arm qualifying professionals with the tools necessary to help older drivers and their families work through the complicated, sensitive and often-times emotional issue of age-related diminishing driving skills.
Having received this certification, Kathy is now well-suited to provide older drivers and their families with a very specific program that will help them make appropriate decisions on how to keep the older driver safe as he or she progresses through the natural aging process.
The “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professional Certification program is designed to be a common-sense approach to help facilitate (and often times mediate!) rational, driving-related solutions based on tangible facts and personal observations. “Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for the families of older drivers” serves as the foundation of the certification program.
Kathy Brown, owner of At Home Care Solutions, explains that “As part of the “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program, I am now trained to facilitate a self-assessment with the older driver, normally at the request of concerned adult children. At the conclusion of our time together, the older driver his or herself makes decisions about a possible driving retirement, based on how the individual has performed on the exercises involved with the session.”
Brown will begin serving the families of older drivers in and around the greater Ottawa area immediately.
Beyond Driving with Dignity” professionals receive annual in-service trainings will have to meet standards of professionalism to maintain their certification. For more information on the certification program please visit http://www.keepingussafe.org.
