Beyond Driving with Dignity
PRLog - Sep. 1, 2014 - CLEVELAND -- Keeping Us Safe will be presenting “When to Put the Brakes on Your Loved-One’s Driving” to family caregivers as well as healthcare professionals as part of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s ‘Care Connection’ program.  The segment is scheduled for November 13, 2014.

Care Connection, is a national telephone support network for family and professional caregivers sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America—a national non-profit organization whose mission is to provide optimal care and services to individuals (and their families) affected by dementia.

“It is an honor to have been selected to participate in the AFA’s Care Connection program” says Matt Gurwell, founder of Keeping Us Safe.  “Addressing the issue of a driving retirement with a loved-one can be a very sensitive and emotional issue and must be handled with tact, empathy and compassion.  I am very excited to for the opportunity to share some helpful tips and suggestions with Care Connection's listeners.”

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Keeping Us Safe is a national organization with a mission of providing practical, real-life solutions to older drivers and their families as they face the challenging issue of age-related diminishing driving skills.

“Our ‘Beyond Driving with Dignity’ program provides concerned families with the missing link between their desire to bring the driving issue to a peaceful resolution, and their ability to actually do so." Gurwell explained.

Care Connection allows family caregivers and professionals nationwide to gain valuable education from guest speakers on a vast array of topics as well as to connect with other caregivers from across the country.  As well, Care Connection offers CEUs for professionals who are part of Dementia Care Professionals of America.
