for disability fraud with his false dementia claims, because he is still able to do things like make forum posts. Whoever created that site might have a legitimate disability claim, I would vouch for them, provided the authorities take away their internet privileges.

It seems I have dementia and still have a better mind than this POS!

OS

Update...I'm sure this is one of those from the other site. The story changed and wasn't consistent with the Act Blue books. When I had the info they stopped replying: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=1311567

I retired: http://hr.cityofomaha.org/images/stories/public_documents/retirement/Civilian/2014/12-2014%20Minutes.pdf

The disability requests are further up the page.

DRIVING PRIVILEGES

Getting your loved one to give up the car keys can be one of the most difficult things a caregiver must do. For many people, driving has been a powerful symbol of independence from the time they were teenagers and got their first license. It can be very distressing when limiting that independence becomes necessary.

Receiving a diagnosis of frontotemporal degeneration need not mean an immediate end to driving. In time however, everyone with FTD or any other degenerative neurological disorder, will become unable to drive. The characteristic behavioral changes associated with FTD can increase risk, and highlight the importance of caregivers getting involved early. People have reduced judgment and are typically unaware of the changes they are experiencing.

A study conducted in 2007 by a team of researchers at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) evaluated the driving competency of FTD patients and healthy controls in a driving simulation task. The FTD patients received more speeding tickets, ran more stop signs, were involved in more accidents, and had a significantly higher average speed than the controls (de Simonea, L. Kaplana, N. Patronasb, E.M. Wassermanna, J. Grafmana 2007).

Caregivers share in the responsibility for the safety of the person diagnosed and that of others who may be at risk if the person continues to drive when no longer safe. Caregivers need to excercise their own judgment, as well as heed the advice of their physician, when it comes to “taking away the keys.”
