Volunteers to help seniors adjust vehicles for safety
Updated On: Apr 27 2013 12:06:56 PM CDT
A team of automotive technicians and health professionals will help senior drivers in Madison check the comfort and safety of their vehicles.
Darcie Olson is an instructor for the Madison College Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. She said drivers' vision, flexibility, strength and other physical conditions may change as they age. The CarFit program can help them clear off blind spots, adjust headroom space, examine foot positioning and check safety belts.
The free service is on May 6 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Madison College West Campus.
Interested seniors should call 608-258-2313 to make an appointment.
