I'm Aoi Hashima , an occupational therapist working in Saga Sumai and Fukuoka.
After a stroke, you will be asked if you should resume driving.
Even in the news, we often see reports of accidents involving elderly people stepping on the wrong gas and brakes, or walking into the wrong lane.
Some people have seen such news and inquired.
Over the past few years, I think there has been an increase in the amount of public documentation from governments and hospitals about resumption of driving after a stroke.
This time, as useful information, I would like to introduce the material for resuming driving after a stroke.
