Tomah Memorial Hospital Occupational Therapy is coordinating a special training event for volunteers and health care professionals interested in helping motorists improve their safety and community mobility.
A free CarFit training day has been scheduled May 18 at Tomah Memorial Hospital.
CarFit is an educational program created by the American Society on Aging and developed in collaboration with the American Automobile Association, AARP, and the American Occupational Therapy Association to help older drivers find out how well they currently fit their personal vehicle while promoting conversations about driver safety and community mobility.
Volunteers and health care professionals interested in becoming a CarFit technician must complete a three hour training session that will be held from 9 a.m. – noon in the lower level classrooms at Tomah Memorial. Persons interested in becoming a volunteer event coordinator must attend the morning session plus an additional three hour training session that will take place May 18 at TMH from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Attendance for the May 18 training is limited. Pre-registration required by contacting the Tomah Memorial Rehab Services Department at (608)374-0330 by May 10.
