A joint program of AARP, AAA, and The American Occupational Therapy Association, CarFit gives older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them. A trained professional asks some simple questions; then completes a 12-point CarFit checklist. The entire process takes about 20 minutes. If your group is having an event where you think a CarFit opportunity might work, contact Paulette Welch: PauletteOT@aol.com.
