Abstract

Individuals want to make informed choices about mobility transitions to retain dignity and independence as they age. The Transport Accident Commission initiated the development, trial, and evaluation of a health promotion education program to meet this need. A participative model was applied and program instruction goals focused on community and driver safety, how health and aging influence transportation independence, mobility options, and resources. Data collected from 94 individuals yielded positive outcomes: the target group was reached (90% were 60 years or older), community mobility information was retained, and participants were satisfied with program content and resources.
