Thank you very much for posting this. My dad was driving his car until his injury on 1/7/11. My aunt and uncle who live close to him were telling me his driving was becoming very scary. Right now he is in a nursing home and will be in an assisted living facility for several months. This is something I will definitely keep in mind if he goes home and still can not safely drive his car.
The Alzheimer's Organization has proved very helpful to me in searching for a place for my dad. We're still in the process and are almost finished, but their website has a great deal of excellent information. Well worth looking into.
