Mercy Medical Center’s Driver Rehabilitation Program is offering AAA Mature Drivers Class to help driver’s compensate for physical changes and drive defensively in today’s busy environment.

It’s easy to take your ability to drive for granted, especially if you’ve been in the driver’s seat for years. But as you get older, the physical changes you undergo can make driving a challenge. Stiff joints, vision and hearing changes, slower reflexes and medications may affect your driving ability. The AAA Mature Drivers Class will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, September 28 and Wednesday, September 29 in Mercy’s Medical Office Building Auditorium. The class is $20, and some insurance companies offer discounts to members who complete the 2-day course. Lunch is included.

Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call Mercy’s Healthcare Connection at 330-489-1333 or 800-223-8662.
