Thurs. August 13, 2020 ZOOM @ 7 - Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital’s Driver Rehabilitation Program.

Speaker: Donna Stressel, OT, of Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital’s Driver Rehabilitation Program.

Multiple studies have shown that drivers over age 60 are generally some of the safest on the road. They are more likely to avoid unsafe behaviors such as speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, talking on cell phones, and not wearing seat belts. That said, it is important for elderly drivers, and their loved ones, to make sure they are road-ready and driving as safely as possible. 


Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital’s Driver Rehabilitation Program offers a comprehensive array of services for elderly drivers, adolescents with learning needs, and the disabled, including clinical assessment, on-the-road evaluation, driver rehabilitation and consultation/education about adaptive driving services. For more information on the program or CarFit programs in the area, call 518-386-3601.


You must register in advance to attend this meeting.
