New London, WI – CarFit, a new free community event designed to assist mature drivers, will be held on Wednesday, May 29th, 2013 at the Affinity Medical Group, 1420 Algoma Street, New London. The event runs from 9:00 a.m. until noon, and is sponsored by the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) and Affinity Health System.
CarFit comes complete with trained professionals, who will review the program’s 12 steps to driver safety and comfort, including seat belt placement, mirror placement and steering wheel adjustments for airbag safety, along with many more helpful tips.
Occupational therapists from Affinity Health System will also be on hand to demonstrate assistive devices such as wedge cushions, seat belt extenders, gas cap wrenches and other devices to help with vehicle safety and maneuvering.
Each checkup takes about 15 minutes and every participating driver will receive a goody bag filled with valuable driving resources.
There is no age limit – all ages (including new drivers) are encouraged to attend.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, but “drive-ins” will be accepted. Pre-registered participants will have their name entered into a drawing for various door prizes! To register, contact Affinity Nurse Direct at (920) 738-2230.
