I have a sensitive family issue that I hope you can help me out with on one of your Group Therapy Thursday segments. I know some other people have probably had to deal with this as well.
Here's my issue...My Father just turned 78 this year and most of the time he's in a fairly good state of mind and a good driver. However, recently he's had a few issues while driving. The first time actually happened this past fall when we were in the car on Haywood road. He started to change lanes and almost hit a car in the other lane because he said he didn't see them next to him. The other, which happened about a month ago was more serious. He rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red-light. Thankfully there was little damage and no one was hurt, but now I'm worried about his ability to be driving period. I've mentioned the idea of him hanging up his keys...but the few times I've brought it up he got upset and said that he's a perfectly good driver and doesn't want to lose his independence. My dad is a proud man and I'm sure that if he had to stop driving it would make him feel almost like he's been defeated. What should I do? I know I can't be the only person who's had this problem, how have other people handled this issue? Thank you so much for putting this out there. I can't wait to hear what my fellow listeners have to say.
