Free Program on Seniors and Driving

A free program about seniors and driving entitled “Keeping Your Keys: To Drive, or Not to Drive?” will be presented at Montgomery County Recreation’s Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center on Wednesday, October 22, from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The center is located at 1000 Forest Glen Rd., Silver Spring.

Participants will learn about the effects of aging on the ability to drive and that it is not always inevitable that all seniors will have to stop driving.

Keynote speakers will be Judith Goldstein, O.D., chief of Low Vision & Rehabilitation Services, Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Timothy Jones, certified driving rehabilitation specialist.

Sign language interpreter services will be provided only upon request with notice as far in advance as possible, but no less than 72 hours prior to the event. If these or other services or aids are needed to participate, call 240-777-8086 or email helen.abrahams@montgomerycountymd.gov.

Pre-registration is required. Call 240-777-8085 to register or for more information.
