The “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program was created in 2008 by Matt Gurwell, a retired Ohio State Trooper. Matt’s passion has been to continue reducing preventable traffic crashes involving older drivers that may have a diminishment in cognitive and/or physical driving abilities. The program provides practical, real-life solutions to older drivers and their concerned families. The “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program is designed to save lives while simultaneously helping to ease the burden of the family as they find themselves faced with this very challenging issue.

Beyond Driving with Dignity: A Facilitated Self Assessment Program for Older Drivers

This program has been designed to serve as a vital tool to facilitate older drivers (and their families) as they make appropriate decisions regarding the future of one’s safe driving career. If the individual is a safe driver, we provide him or her with strategies on how to remain a safe driver as they progress through the aging process. If driving retirement is the appropriate decision, then we offer the individual (and their family) possible alternatives, resources, and a specific plan to ensure a smooth and successful transition from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat.

Our Mission

The “Beyond Driving with Dignity” program is dedicated to improving the mortality rate of older drivers and drivers with certain disabilities. We accomplish this through our dedicated franchise owners, who work one-on-one with the older driver, and deliver proprietary educational programs to older drivers, their families, geriatric professionals, and the general public. Our owners further enhance our service to others by forming meaningful and beneficial partnerships with members of the medical, geriatric, criminal justice and highway safety communities.

"We have been dealing with a loved one who was suffering from a very aggressive form of dementia and knew the time was upon us to start looking for a place where our loved one could be cared for around the clock. We have had the pleasure of knowing Linda for many years and when we learned that she was now working with families who needed help in finding the "right fit" we were of course very comfortable in allowing Linda to assist us in making a tough situation so much more tolerable. Linds spent time really understanding what our needs were and worked hard to find the right environment that met those needs. Whether it was the communities survey history, longevity of staff, activities, transportation, room layout or just the financial investment, Linda was so diligent in making sure we were making the best choice we could. We are convinced that Linda's involvement helped us find the best place for our loved one's care. I really don't know what we would have done if Linda hadn't been there to guide us along the way. We hole heartedly thank her and would highly recommend her services to anyone in a similar situation. She made the difficult bearable."

"I knew nothing about finding an assisted living facility for my dad before I met Linda. She was professional, knowledgeable, educational, and most importantly caring. We looked at 4 different places that all met the criteria. Together we selected the best one. Days after selection, my dad was informed he needed to move from his current skilled care facility to someplace else. Insurance said so. There are no family members within an 8 hour drive of my dad and Linda facilitated the move on her own. She even made arrangements for temporary furniture until family could return. Never in my adult life have I experienced such genuine care from a service provider. Linda is by far the best."
