California’s senior population is proving to be one of the fastest growing driving-age demographics in the state. It is estimated, there will be over six million residents age 65 and older in California by the year 2020.
Knowing that much of this community still relies on driving as their primary means of transportation the California Highway Patrol, in conjunction with Lassen Indian Health Center, is offering another in a series of free Age-Well, Drive-Smart classes for older drivers.
Changes in eyesight, medications and your health all affect your ability to drive. The class will discuss these subjects and more as they explore ways to keep you driving safer and driving longer. The program is designed for seniors and anyone experiencing physical changes that affect their driving.
The free class will be held at the Diamond Mountain Casino’s Willow Room on Thursday, June 20th at 11:00a.m.
