I used to make my mother drive when we went on a grocery or restaurant trip so I could assess her driving skills once I knew she had Alzheimer's. I'll never forget the time we were coming home from a restaurant we'd been eating at for many years and she suddenly became disoriented. I knew it was time to take the keys. After reading this article, I now understand why she was involved in an auto accident prior to the time I realized she had Alzheimer's. This is definitely a worthwhile read if your loved one has dementia and still drives an automobile/vehicle of any kind.
