In the first of its kind in the nation, an AARP Smart Driver course was taught to deaf students at the Sanderson Center in Taylorsville, Utah on Monday, November 14. The Center reached out to AARP and requested that a class be taught there as a way to give older, deaf drivers a chance to refresh their driving skills.
Many of Colorado's safest and most experienced drivers benefit from information that helps them adjust to an evolving array of changes in car technologies, roadway designs, traffic laws and rules, and also in themselves. Many of these Baby Boomers have no plans to retire their freedom and independence by giving up the wheel of their car anytime soon.
In 1979, AARP founded “55 Alive” to help keep older drivers independent, safe and confident while on the road. While its mission hasn’t changed since then, many other things have, including the program name.
Homebound seniors struggling financially find it difficult to eat healthy, nutritious food on a regular basis. Virginia’s Meals on Wheels programs work to meet this critical need by delivering hot meals to qualified recipients. Currently there is a need for volunteer drivers to help keep this program viable in Virginia’s Southwest. http://www.loaa.org/volunteer-opportunities/
