Kingston's CarFit Training
Oak Tree Retirement Village Kingston this week invited members of the RACT and trained professionals including occupational therapists to the village to run a safety program called CarFit.
The program shows drivers recommended adjustments in their own vehicles and how to maximise their personal safety and comfort, including mirrors, seat positions, correct back support and correct distances from the dashboard to not only aid in their comfort but make them a safer driver.
The program was free of charge and was well received by all of the residents.
Residents enjoy the fact that there are plenty of new information displays and services introduced at the village level. They can regularly access so much information without having to leave the comfort of their village community.
