Do you have concerns about a loved one, friend or neighbor who is experiencing memory impairment and is still driving—and you don’t know what to do? The ability of senior adults to drive, retain independence and preserve dignity are among the most difficult challenges to face when it comes to safety on the road and risk of liability.
The Kensington is a new assisted living and memory care community that opened this past summer. Here, we care deeply about our residents as well as those who love them, so we provide opportunities to learn about and prepare for potential difficulties. Join us with Lisa Bricker and Tressa Thompson, who will share their experiences, facts and important information about the problems that can arise when older adults with signs of memory loss get behind the wheel.
Lisa Bricker is a Certified Life Coach and a family caregiver for her husband Gary who at age 63 was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s 6 years ago. As someone who knows and lives this long journey firsthand, Lisa compassionately brings guidance and support in “real-time” for family caregivers seeking balance, empowerment and inspiration. Lisa is a long standing Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation with over 25 years of experience. She was on the Coaching Faculty for the Executive MBA Program for Loyola Marymount University and is also actively involved here in our local community focusing on senior services and Alzheimer’s Los Angeles where she serves on the Public Policy Committee, Programs Committee, Speaker’s Bureau and is helping to foster dementia friendly communities in the San Gabriel Valley.
