New service being offered in the Michiana, Indiana area to help concerned families of older drivers
Michiana would like to welcome “Beyond Driving with Dignity” to our area. This is a self-assessment program for the older driver to allow THEM to decide when to move from the driver’s seat to the passenger’s seat, when THEY are ready.
Keeping Us Safe’s “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professional Certification program has been designed to equip JP and Marlow Hoyer and other professionals throughout the United States and Canada with the tools necessary to help older drivers and their families work through the complicated issue for age-related diminishing driving skills.
The Hoyers, owners of Home Instead Senior Care in Mishawaka, Indiana, are now well-suited to provide older drivers and their families with a very specific program that will help make decisions on how to keep the older driver safe. They will begin offering their services throughout the Michiana area effective immediately.
Certification in the “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program is designed to be a common-sense approach to facilitate (and often times mediate!) rational, common-sense driving-related solutions based on tangible facts and personal observations. The program is unique in that it allows the older driver to play an active role in the decision making process as it relates to his or her driving future.
“Marlow and I welcome the opportunity to educate families in one of the hardest decisions that our aging population faces. “When do I stop driving?” This is an issue that all of us will face one day. “Beyond Driving with Dignity” is the only program locally that will allow the older person to make a self-assessment. It takes the emotion, opinion and speculation out of the process. It keeps the dignity in.”
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", explains Matt Gurwell, founder of Keeping Us Safe.
