    “CarFit” Event for Older Adults at People Inc. Pine Senior Living

    CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles “fit” them. Do you have a clear view out your vehicle’s windows? Are you able to reach and manage all controls and adjust the seat and seat belt so they are secure and comfortable? Find out at the CarFit – Helping Mature Drivers find their Safest Fit event on Wednesday, July 8, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at People Inc. Pine Senior Living, 6231 Tonawanda Creek Road North, Lockport (off Transit Road near Millersport Highway). CarFit is an educational program that provides a quick, yet comprehensive review of how well you and your vehicle work together. The program, which was developed by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association, provides information and materials on community-specific resources that may enhance your driving safety and increase mobility. According to the CarFit website, driver safety programs improve adult driver safety by addressing cognitive abilities and skills, however, older drivers can also improve their safety by ensuring their cars are properly adjusted for them. A proper fit in one’s car may increase not only the driver’s safety but also the safety of others. Making adjustments may help you benefit from vehicle safety features by improving comfort, control and confidence behind the wheel. Additionally, during the event, there will be an opportunity to tour apartments at People Inc. Pine Senior Living, which provides affordable and safe apartments for independent seniors ages 62 and up who meet income guidelines. Monthly rent is based on income; some utilities included.
