Safety Tips for Older Adults
As the baby boomer generation ages, there are more senior drivers on the road than ever before. And itís a difficult conversation to have when itís no longer safe for them to drive. ďDriving retirementĒ is a normal part of aging, but how do you know when itís time to take away the keys? And what other steps should you take to keep your loved ones safe, not only on the road but also in their homes?

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Ericka Tung, a Mayo Clinic internist and geriatrician, will discuss safety for older adults. Also on the program, you'll learn about Mayo Clinic Connect, an online patient community. Colleen Young, community director, and Rosemary Huckleberry, a volunteer mentor for Mayo Clinic Connect, will share how patients use the platform. And Dr. Steve Ommen, director for Mayo Clinic Center for Connected Care, will explain how digital medicine is changing health care.
