Experts from Columbia University have established that driving a car can save a person from senile dementia. Finding driving forces the brain to work constantly, maintain the nervous system in good shape, and the presence of the car gives the appearance of personal freedom and independence to others regardless of age, says The Financial Express.
Driving for seniors can be very helpful. Scientists noticed that elderly people with a private car more often led an active lifestyle were more independent.
Experts say: to drive in old age is only in the absence of disease, limiting this type of activity. You should weigh all possible risks and make a decision: continue to drive or to leave this activity for their own safety.
