Glad that she was found. But I did read in the story that she is in the early stages of dementia and has difficulty walking. Here is yet another example of someone that should not have access to a car or a driver license. Go ahead, beat me up for saying this but time and time again we are reading stories about seniors that go missing and end up miles away or cause an accident. If you can’t walk (moving your legs with a stride) and can only shuffle or slide your feet along, how can you move your feet to press the gas and/or brake? Respond quickly to an emergency? I know its hard to talk to your parents about this issue but we have to. And some times we have to be the “meanie” and just say “you are no longer safe to drive” and take the car. Its a hard subject to deal with. I know. I just had this conversation with my parents in preparation that Dad can not drive much longer due to his medical condition. But I would rather deal with it NOW than after a major or fatal accident.
