OTHER TYPES OF SERVICE

Drive Simulator through St. Rita’s Medical Center

Service explanation: As we get older our reflexes and our ability to make quick decisions while operating a car naturally slow down. Changes in our abilities due to injury or illness can enhance these changes and result in poorer response time, peripheral vision and thinking skills. A driving evaluation is designed to help individuals and their families determine the ability to safely drive a motor vehicle.

Where is the service offered? The service is offered at 830 W. High St., Suite 150 in the Outpatient Rehab Dept at St. Rita’s.

Who is eligible? Any individual who may be at risk for decreased visual, spatial and cognitive skills, as well as those wishing to validate their ability to operate a motor vehicle.

How a referral is made? A physician prescription is required and can be written for A DRIVING EVALUATION. Appointments can be made by calling St. Rita’s Outpatient Occupational Therapy Dept. at (419)-226-9019.

What is the cost? With a physician prescription, MOST insurance companies will cover this service.

Beyond Driving with Dignity:

Service explanation: A guided in-home self- assessment conducted by a certified Beyond Driving with Dignity Professional serves as a tool for the older driver and his/her family in making appropriate driving related decisions. If the individual is a safe driver, we provide strategies on how to remain a safe driver as they progress through the aging process. If driving retirement is the appropriate decision, than we provide acceptable transportation alternatives, resources and a specific plan to ensure a smooth and successful transition from the driver seat to the passenger seat.

Who is eligible? This service is for anyone that can benefit.

How a referral is made? Call Erica Petrie, Mobility Manager/Certified Beyond Driving Dignity Professional at Area Agency on Aging 3 at 419-222-7723.

OTHER TYPES OF SERVICE

Drive Simulator through St. Rita’s Medical Center

A short explanation of the service and what it includes:
As we get older our reflexes and our ability to make quick decisions while operating a car naturally slow down. Changes in our abilities due to injury or illness can enhance these changes and result in poorer response time, peripheral vision and thinking skills. A driving evaluation is designed to help individuals and their families determine the ability to safely drive a motor vehicle.

Where is the service offered? The service is offered at 830 W. High St., Suite 150 in the Outpatient Rehab Dept at St. Rita’s.

Who is eligible? Any individual who may be at risk for decreased visual, spatial and cognitive skills, as well as those wishing to validate their ability to operate a motor vehicle.

How a referral is made? A physician prescription is required and can be written for A DRIVING EVALUATION. Appointments can be made by calling St. Rita’s Outpatient Occupational Therapy Dept. at (419)-226-9019.

What is the cost?  With a physician prescription, MOST insurance companies will cover this service.

Beyond Driving with Dignity:

Service explanation: A guided in-home self-assessment conducted by a certified Beyond Driving with Dignity Professional serves as a tool for the older driver and his/her family in making appropriate driving related decisions. If the individual is a safe driver, we provide strategies on how to remain a safe driver as they progress through the aging process. If driving retirement is the appropriate decision, than we provide acceptable transportation alternatives, resources and a specific plan to ensure a smooth and successful transition from the driver seat to the passenger seat.

Who is eligible? This service is for anyone that can benefit.

How a referral is made? Call Erica Petrie, Mobility Manager/Certified Beyond Driving Dignity Professional at Area Agency on Aging 3 at 419-222-7723.
