"Beyond Driving with Dignity"
and Employee Assistance Programs
...a natural partnership
Studies have repeatedly shown that if employee problems are left unaddressed, they will ultimately impact the organization's bottom line. Keeping Us Safe's self-assessment program for older drivers is an early intervention program, designed (in part) to relieve a valued employee's concerns surrounding an elderly parent's driving.
Having taken appropriate and effective action, employees will no longer obsessively dwell on the driving safety of mom or dad. Employees will be able to focus on organizational goals and job responsibilities and will not be distracted by concerns over a loved oneís safety. They will be effective in decision making and problem solving. Bringing a peaceful resolve to the senior's driving issue will surely bring the worried employee's concentration, focus and organizational skills back to the expected performance level.
Our internationally recognized "Self-Assessment Program" for older drivers was built on the premise that everyone wants to participate in decisions that affect them, and that very few of us will willingly accept the specific terms or even the spirit of decisions that have been dictated by someone else.
Our experience has shown us that older drivers with diminishing driving skills are no different!
This individualized program has been designed to serve as a valuable tool in helping older drivers (and their families) make appropriate decisions regarding the future of one's safe driving career.
If the individual is a safe driver, we provide him or her with strategies on how to remain a safe driver as they progress through the aging process. If a driving retirement is the appropriate decision, then we provide the individual (and their family) with acceptable alternatives, resources and a very specific plan to ensure a smooth and successful transition from the driver's seat to the passenger seat.
