During COVID-19, many of us have identified ways to stay safe at home and complete daily tasks without driving our car:

  • Using online resources, apps, or community volunteers for grocery shopping            
  • Ordering medications online
  • Visiting doctors and medical specialists via phone or online                                                    
  • Connecting with family and friends via phone or online

 

For an older driver seeking to improve their road safety, learning how to use these services can have benefits beyond the current pandemic. Familiarizing yourself with these services now may have benefits long after the pandemic is over, as experts predict many of the activities we used to have to leave the house for will remain safe and accessible electronically.
