Helping ease Michigan seniors off the roads

It’s not easy to tell an elderly parent that it’s time for them to stop driving. We talk with Wynn Esterline of Home Instead Senior Care in East Lansing about the “Let’s Talk About Driving” program.

We’re in the midst of summer driving season. These are the days for long car trips to great getaway spots, and also just the routine trips to the grocery store or the gas station.

Parents of teenaged children know the talks they have with their kids as they get behind the wheel for the first time. But there’s another conversation experts say families should be having. This one is with older loved ones who may be reaching a time when they should no longer be driving.

A national in home senior care franchise is sponsoring a program to help families initiate that conversation.
