This qualitative study explored older adults’ feelings toward driving cessation, driving cessation preparedness, and the role CarFit may play in helping individuals prepare for driving cessation. The three themes discovered were loss of independence, lack of preparedness for driving cessation, and benefits of CarFit education. The key role OT practitioners can help play in helping older adults prepare for driving cessation based on findings will be reviewed.
