Well, I asked for it. And am darn glad I did. Last week. I asked for some of your suggestions regarding “taking away the keys” when our loved ones should no longer be on the road. If the reaction was to be like any time the driving issue comes up at a Fearless Caregiver Conference, I knew we would be getting lots of emails in response to my request. We did. And they are all chockful of some really great information.  You can never go wrong asking a fellow caregiver for advice:

In my case we had to buy a new car and strange as it seems they only had one key…continued

I live in CA and I have been a caregiver to both of my parents since 1983. My father passed in 1988, and recently  my mom has been showing signs of Alzheimer's and or dementia. She also has heart disease, 3 types of arthritis (including fibromyalgia) and diabetes.  I work full time, and take care of her. I am seeing lately that she needs my assistance more.

Thank you
