Concern over relatives driving with dementia

The onset of dementia and a general decline in the power to think clearly is the greatest concern that families have about elderly relatives driving, according to recently compiled research.

In Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire, nearly half of all people are worried about it, a survey by the Institute of Advanced Motorists has found.

Forty-two per cent of people who have concerns about an older relative driving have tried to discuss this with them.
