CarFit event for older adults June 4

Brenau’s occupational therapy students will hold a community event for older adults called CarFit from 1:30-4 p.m. Tuesday, June 4 in front of the OT department on Chestnut Street.

CarFit is a national program sponsored by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association. Brenau students will go through a 12-point checklist to assess the fit of the car to its driver. This includes checking mirror settings, seat belts, head rest heights and car controls. It is not an assessment of the driver’s ability to drive.

The assessment takes about 20 minutes.

If anyone is interested, please have them contact Helene Smith-Gabai at ude.uanerb@iabag-htimsh.
