As people age, the fear of losing their drivers licence can be a strong catalyst for premature entry into residential aged care. Being able to drive – to shop, to attend medical appointments, to attend social engagements, is a key aspect of independence for many adults, and is closely tied to a sense of freedom, competence, confidence and identity.
McLean Care® is committed to ensuring that older people in regional, rural and remote communities have equitable access to services that help them to maintain their health, independence and wellbeing as they age, and to maintain good social connections.
In 2017 we were successful in an application for major Government grant funding, which will enable us to design, build and trial unique and innovative technology that may assist older people keep their driver’s licences longer. The project will see the development and trial of a ground-breaking, cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) driving simulator for older people aged between 70-80.
With a proven project delivery record of accomplishment, we will undertake testing of the simulator late in 2018.
