What to do if a senior can no longer drive?

Unfortunately, as we age many health conditions may interfere with our ability to safely drive. 

Because Abby Services is known as one of the leaders in senior care, we often have families asking what they should do about a parent, neighbor, or loved one who is a senior driver and has become unsafe behind the wheel. This is often a sensitive subject and one that can be challenging to manage.

In the blog post below we review suggestions for families who may be managing concerns about unsafe senior driving.

Options for seniors when driving is unsafe.

When a senior cannot drive it may be difficult to consider or manage options to get from point A to B. The Department of Elderly Affairs has resources about senior transportation service options.

These options include:

  • Medicaid

    • Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC LTC) Plans provide non-emergency senior transportation service to enrolled members through their transportation provider.
    • If you are enrolled in a SMMC plan and need a ride to a covered service, you can locate the transportation provider on your health plan identification card.
    • If you are interested in getting on the SMMC LTC program: Call your local Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) to be screened for the SMMC LTC program.
