3 good things senior drivers do to stay safe

As an older adult, you know driving helps you be independent. Driving lets you run your own errands, visit friends and family and maybe even go to work. But did you know you are more likely to get injured or killed in a car accident as you get older? In fact, over 236,000 senior drivers went to emergency rooms and over 5,700 died because of car crashes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

When one puts a loved one in a nursing home, he or she is sure to visit often and make sure that staff is caring well for the elderly family member. Most people know how to discover typical nursing home abuses such as malnutrition, development of bed sores or even improper supervision allowing an elderly loved one to wander off. Certainly, personal injuries to the elderly in nursing homes are not uncommon. However, an unnoticed abuse of a loved one’s finances may not be something one expects. Unfortunately, many seniors residing in nursing homes across the country are subject to theft of their savings by the very nursing home that should be caring for them, and Florida seniors are not immune from this abuse.
