Q.  What is self-assessment?

A.  The best answer is by example.  The Alzheimer’s Association had a meeting  facilitated by Joan Uronis, who self-assessed her condition.  Joan first notice memory loss in her late 50s.  As a caregiver for her mother with Alzheimer’s, Joan knew that something was wrong when she began to experience extreme fatigue, difficulty with work-related tasks and one particular incident in which she became lost driving to a familiar location.  Joan visited a neurologist when she was 60 and was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).  Her doctor warned her that the diagnosis was a possible precursor to Alzheimer’s disease.

Another example of “self-assessment” is “Beyond Driving with Dignity”.

The “self-assessment” program for older drivers is not a driving test, driving evaluation or driving assessment.

“Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professional, you does not administer a driving test, driving evaluation or driving assessment.

Well then….Exactly what does it do?

A “Beyond Driving with Dignity” Professional will provide tangible facts (void of emotion or personal bias) to the older driver and his or her family that will facilitate their ability to make appropriate driving-related decisions.”

The success of the self-assessment program is based (in part) on the older driver’s understanding that he or she is the decision maker.
