On July 18th, 2014, Tamalea Stone, OT, Driver Rehabilitation Specialist and CarFit Coordinator, trained three Technician Volunteers in preparation for a private Carfit event held in Peterborough on July 29, 2014, at a Seniors Retirement Residence. We successfully provided six drivers with information to find “their perfect fit” with their vehicles. The event was held as a “stationary” event in a covered parking garage. Drivers provided feedback that the education was helpful in pointing out some ways to increase their comfort and overall fit in their vehicle.
A second public event is being planned for Saturday , October 25th from 1 pm to 3 pm at the CAA Parking Lot in Peterborough, following Technician training in the morning at the Best Western hotel. CAA is partnering to deliver the Carfit event and Tamalea is very excited to be bringing CarFit to Peterborough which has a high senior population.
