“Heather, your support and guidance was truly amazing. Having your professional assessment was a gift to our family. The process you used was tailored to Mom’s needs—her Intellect, cognition and emotional state were clearly considered. I loved the way Mom was led through to the point where she felt it was her decision to stop the driving.” Margy
“Heather was so helpful to us. She understands Parkinson’s Disease, and can explain what is going on with respect to driving skills in everyday terms. She was calm and patient during the driving assessment, as well as in teaching sessions. She broke down the important safety factors so that we could review them during our own practice driving. A very worthwhile investment!” -Ann L.
“The testing that Heather Shields did to evaluate my 94 year old father’s ability to continue to drive was outstanding. She is well qualified, professional and compassionate.

Additionally, I know I will get a thorough eval from you and I love the communication after the fact that helps me have critical conversations to ensure patient outcomes. Keep up the great work.” -Portland, Maine Physician
“Your website covered a lot of what I was looking for regarding a driving evaluation for my mother. The idea that Heather understood dementia and how it might impact one’s driving skills, could come to my mother’s house given that she’s comfortable there, would give us ideas on what to look for regarding her driving skills or lack of were all reasons we decided to use your services. Also, your short videos did a nice job of allowing others to speak to what they had gotten out of your service and again, it was what I was looking for regarding my mother. Then, when I spoke to Heather on the phone and you reiterated what you could do, I just felt you had the skills that we were looking for to assess our mother’s situation.” -Family member of client
“I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your services with my mom. My mom is in that part of her life where driving probably shouldn’t be happening. It has taken several months of seeing her primary doctor and a neurologist to get to the point where we were introduced to Heather. I think my mom knew there was an issue with her memory but wasn’t totally convinced she shouldn’t be driving. She knew that even though this was a cost to her, she needed to know for sure. We learned so much from your evaluation you did at her home with her family and I now understand more of what is going on with my mom. I know it wasn’t easy for my mom to make the decision to stop driving but I do believe it was in her best interest and I think now she can move on to enjoy her life without this stress over her. Thank you again for your kind and caring matter in how you handled my mom.” -Terry, family member of client
