“Beyond Driving with Dignity, the Workbook for the Families of Older Drivers”

(Raleigh, NC) – Raleigh Geriatric Care Management (RGCM) has partnered with Keeping Us Safe to offer the nationally recognized “Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for the families of older drivers” workbook to concerned adults in the greater Raleigh area, as they are faced with the very sensitive issues surrounding the family’s older driver.

Lauren Watral, owner of RGCM explains that the workbook is an outstanding tool to help families maneuver through the process of helping a loved-one retire from driving, while simultaneously helping the individual maintain his or her dignity and independence.

Watral states “I am very excited to bring the workbook to families and professionals in the greater Raleigh area.  It is a very powerful tool for families challenged by this complex and sensitive issue.  Not only is this an excellent tool for the family, but it is also being used by professionals as they encounter more and more older driver concerns”.

The workbook’s author Matt Gurwell explains “The workbook was designed to save lives and to simultaneously provide additional peace of mind for families”.  When asked what the ultimate motivation was for the workbook, Gurwell, a retired Ohio State Trooper explains:
“It was the result of 20-plus years of holding dying people in my arms at terrible car accidents, and delivering dozens and dozens of death notifications to families. I would much rather work with families to bring a peaceful resolve to this sensitive and uncomfortable issue now, rather than have them deal with it when a State Trooper is knocking on their front door”.

Individuals purchasing the workbook through the RGCM website on the resources page (www.rgcmgmt.com) will receive an immediate $3 discount off the retail price.
