Dear Savvy Senior, What tips or resources can you recommend to help elderly seniors extend their driving years? My dad, who 82, is still a decent driv- en but worry about his safety g0- ing forward. Inquiring Daughter Dear Inquiring, With more than 40 million 1i- censed drivers in the US. over the age of 65, there are lots of re— sources available today to help keep older drivers safe and behind the wheel longer. Here are some simple steps you can take to help keep your dad driving safely. Get his eyes checked: Because about 90 percent of the informa— tion necessary to drive is received through our eyes, getting your dad’s eyes checked every year to be sure his vision and eyewear is up to par is an important first step. Check his meds: Does your dad take any medicine or combi- nation of medicines that make him sleepy, light-headed or loopy? If so, make a list of all his med- ications (prescription and over—the- counter) and dietary supplements, and take it to his doctor or phar- macist for a review. You can also get help with this online at Road~ wiseRX.com. Evaluate his driving: To stay on top of any potential driving issues, you should take a ride with your dad from time—to-time watching for problem areas, such as: Does he drive at inappropriate speeds, easily or make poor driving deci- sions? For more tips, see the Na- tional Caregivers Library driving assessment checklist at Senior- DriverChecklist.org. If your dad needs a more thor- ough evaluation, you can turn to a driver rehabilitation specialist who’s trained to evaluate older drivers. This type of assessment typically costs between $100 and $200. To locate a professional in your area, visit AOTA.org/older— driver or ADED.net. Take a refresher course: AAA and AARP both have older driver refresher courses that can help your dad tune-up his driving skills, and learn how to adjust for slow— er reflexes, weaker vision and other age-related changes that af- fect driving. Taking a class may also earn him a discount on his auto insurance. To locate a class, contact your local AAA (AAAicom), or AARP (AARP.org/drive, 888-227-7669). Most courses cost around $15 to $30 and can be taken in the class- room or online. Another good resource to look into is CarFit. This is a free as- sessment program that will help your dad adjust his vehicle for a better fit, making it easier and safer to drive. CarFit events are held around the country in select loca— tions. See Car-Fit.org to look for one near you.

Through With Chew Week is planned for February 18 22, 2019. This an- nual event calls attention to the health risks and dangers associat— ed with smokeless tobacco use. During Through With Chew Week, Walsh County Health District will be working with Walsh County dental offices to offer free oral screenings to tobacco users. In ad- dition, Walsh County Health Dis- trict will be providing smokeless tobacco users with tools to quit to- bacco as well as educating our community about the ways smoke- less tobacco can cause harm. Smokeless doesn’t mean harm- less, using any forrn of tobacco is a health risk. There is a miscon— ception that smokeless tobacco products are safer than cigarettes. However, smokeless tobacco prod- ucts like chew, dip or snuff have been linked to cancers of the mouth, esophagus and pancreas, as well as many other health prob- lems like heart disease. If you are a tobacco user, con- tact any of the following dental of- fices in Walsh County to schedule your free oral exam. ' D. G. B.

In 2017, North Dako- ta’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey showed 8.0 percent of North Dakota high school students cur- rently use chew, snuff, snus or dip. This is down from 2015, when 10.6 percent of high school stu- dents in the state reported using smokeless tobacco. Though progress is being made, North Dakota’s youth is still reporting higher use of smokeless tobacco than the national average of 5.8 percent (Centers for Disease Con— trol and Prevention). For questions or help with quit- ting tobacco, contact Walsh Coun‘ ty Health District at (701) 352 5139. We offer refunds of up to $200 for FDA approved tobacco cessation products.

Hasslesnmme brings in 20 volunteers HOOPLE, ND. — First Luther- an Church hosted a blood drive with Vitalant, formerly United Blood Services, on January 25 which helped collect a total of 18 units of blood for patients in need. A total of 20 individuals volun- teered to donate blood and 16 indi- viduals were able to donate at the V1— talant blood drive on January 25. A total of two donors also came for- ward to donate Power Red Cells (2RBC) which collects two units of red blood cells while returning platelets, plasma and a saline solu- tion back to the donor. Vitalant expressed their grati- tude to Maren Olson, who coordi- nated the drive, and First Lutheran Church which sponsored the blood drive. Vitalant strives to keep a 5-day supply of every blood type on the shelf at all times to be able to meet the needs of patients across the re- gion. Donations from O-negative donors, the universal blood type, are especially important this time of year due to increased accidents and trau- ma cases. Vitalant is the only blood provider to nearly 70 hospitals across the re— gion. The blood supply is depend- ent on selfless donations from vol— unteer donors to ensure the lifesav- ing needs of the region are met. About 30 percent of Vitalant’s blood supply goes to cancer patients across the region and one in seven people entering the hospital will need blood. Those relying on blood in the region receive that lifesaving blood from Vitalant. Donors can make a convenient appointment to give blood at www.bloodhero.com or by calling 877-25-VITAL. With each donation, donors receive a free total cholesterol test and earn points in Vitalant’s donor rewards program. Blood donation takes about an hour fi'om check~in to refreshments. Donors can save about 20 minutes by completing their Health History Questionnaire the day they donate on www.vitalant.org Share celebrationo!
