Will technology help or hinder dementia persons?
Seeing the news today about driverless cars, how will that effect the future of persons with dementia. Since the car responds to electronic input rather than an individuals operation of the steering wheel, will it enable persons with dementia to stay in the drivers seat? It could be used by someone with mild impairment to get to appointments and shopping without asking for help. Of course they would have to learn how to operate the vehicle and learning is not one of their attributes. How would their driving be curtailed? Do you foresee new laws to regulate their driving? I doubt that I will be around to see this but will you or your children?
