I heard all the rig-a-ma-roo about how to stop a senior with dementia from driving, but one does not have to go through a bunch of contacts, doctor, etc. My mother had beginning Alzheimer’s. When she got in her first accident, I hand delivered a letter to the manager of the local DMV office, explaining that she was 100% at fault; she had dementia; and I felt she should not be driving. THEY TOOK CARE OF IT.
They sent her a letter asking for her to come in for a driving test. She misunderstood the letter, believing it to say that she could not drive. I took the letter and that was the end of it.
This way, my mother NEVER knew it was me; there was no strife between us and she had to stop driving. NO stress, no hassle.
Possibly I saved her life and maybe others. YES, it was more of a burden on ME, but after all, it was worth it.
