You’ve begun to notice that your neighbor has stopped driving and you wonder what’s happened. When you ask them they mumble and say something like I’ve lost my license or I don’t want to drive distances anymore. Most individuals would rather fight than give up the privilege of driving so this simple acquiescence may be indicative of larger issues. Perhaps your neighbor had an accident or was stopped by the police. Perhaps they have memory loss and realize that they easily become lost. Whatever the reason offer to run an errand here or there. More importantly offer to take them to see their physician for regular checkups. This might shed some light on the situation and it may be your opportunity to get their family involved if any exist.
