While I’m not so keen on my parents driving and we are working toward a resolution for this, I was shocked when the social worker told me my parents couldn’t come up with complete names and phone numbers. They both have carried contact phone numbers in their wallets for years.
Apparently, my mom didn’t have her purse with her and I’m not sure if my dad looked in his wallet.
The social worker recommended that I make laminated contact cards and put them in the glove box and back seat of their cars. If they are pulled over or lost and assistance is given, the glove box is one of the first places most police or emergency support will look. Activated.
