Mobility in the community maximizes opportunity for independence.
One of the primary forms of mobility is driving. This program provides an objective means of assessing a patient's ability to safely operate an automobile. The program components are a clinic evaluation of the patient's visual, cognitive and perceptual skills as they relate to the operation of a motor vehicle, and an actual road test to identify deficits.
The goals of the program are:
• To assess if the patient has the potential for safe driving • To facilitate the patient's ability to safely operate a motor vehicle • To provide communication with referral sources • To provide appropriate education to patients and family members
