Aged Dementia Health Education and Research at the University of Wollongong, together with Transport for NSW have released a new resource aimed at helping older drivers make informed decisions when it comes to driving.
Driving brings a sense of independence, freedom and convenience for most people and can provide a way to get to social and leisure activities, volunteer work, or travel.
And while most adults are experienced, cautious and responsible drivers, your driving skills may change as you age. So even if you feel confident driving, it’s important to look out for any changes which may affect your driving skills.
Transport for NSW have released a new resource aimed at helping older drivers make informed decisions when it comes to driving. The resource provides guidance and support and will help you consider:
- How you can keep driving safely for longer
- How to prepare for other ways to get around.

Please get in touch with your Care Manager if you’d like assistance with applying for any of the resources mentioned in the decision aid.
