    Don’t give tragedy the opportunity to strike your family; there is help available.

    Keeping Us Safe is a national organization that provides practical, real-life solutions to older drivers and their families.

    “Beyond Driving with Dignity; The workbook for older drivers and their families” serves as the foundation of our family-centered “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program. The program is designed to help older drivers with diminishing driving skills make a smooth transition from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat without deterioration to their dignity, personal pride or independence.

    This program provides families with the missing link between their desire to bring this issue to a peaceful resolution, and their ability to actually do so.

    We offer our Certified “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professionals who have been specifically trained and certified in the “Enhanced Self-Assessment Program” for older drivers.

    Families benefit from a third-party, impartial intervention in resolving this very delicate and sensitive issue. Certified “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professionals can be found throughout the US (including the greater Bradenton/Sarasota areas) and Canada.

    Our programs are designed to save lives while helping to ease the burden of the family as they find themselves faced with this very challenging issue.

    Keeping Us Safe’s “self-assessment program” for older drivers has become a respected resource for physicians, hospital systems, and court systems looking for help for older drivers and their concerned families.

    For more information on our programs, or to learn more about becoming one of the Nation’s Certified “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professionals, visit Keeping Us Safe at http://www.keepingussafe.org or call us at 877-907-8841.
