The aim of this qualitative study was to explore the experience of older adults participating in an educational session and CarFit event and to determine its impact on preparing older adults for driving cessation. A lack of preparedness for driving cessation and the benefits of learning about resources and driving warning signs through the educational session and CarFit event was identified. Findings show that OT practitioners can provide support for driving safety and cessation.
