This subcommittee of Dementia Friendly Bloomington focuses on helping people living with dementia (PLWD) transition to driving retirement WITHOUT removing that privilege prematurely.

Currently the Committee is working on the following projects:

-Coordinating efforts to build and fund ramps for those who need them.

-Addressing transportation alternatives for PLWD who are no longer driving.

-Providing education about driver safety, transportation, and driving retirement.

For more information about projects, or to get involved, please contact Dayna Thompson at 812.353.9299
