Your Family :: Plan for the Future

Most people plan carefully for their retirement, thinking about everything from housing and health care to financial security. What many people neglect to plan for is transportation. If you are discussing retirement for a family member, or yourself, take the same approach to transportation that you would with finances. Plan for regular medical exams and driving assessments, choose a safer car or find the right fit for the driver's current car, and identify alternative modes of transportation.

Discuss driving and the future with your family member using the following approach:

  • Collect information
  • Develop a plan of action
  • Follow through on the plan of action
