Driving and Dementia Roadmap
The Driving and Dementia Roadmap (DDR) is a free, online resource for health professionals, people with dementia and family caregivers. The website was developed by a team of researchers, affiliated with Baycrest, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the University of Toronto. The DDR aims to equip health professionals with the knowledge and tools to help guide patients with dementia and their family members through the driving cessation process. This unique resource also includes portals for people with dementia and their family members and provides information, videos, worksheets, and other tools about topics such as how dementia can impact driving; identifying when it becomes unsafe for people living with dementia to drive; and how to adjust to life without driving once the decision has been made. For health professionals, the DDR can also provide strategies on how to assess fitness to drive and to optimize a patient's or client's quality of life post-driving cessation.
