Why don’t you try? : Find equipment to help when using the car

Traveling by car can be challenging for seniors and caregivers

Simply using a car can be difficult for seniors & whether they drive themselves or are passengers.
This can be caused by health conditions or the physical changes of normal aging.
For someone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke, or mobility issues, getting into and out of a car can be even more difficult. It might even take multiple people to help them in and out safely.
