Although there are particularly salient and problematic challenges in addressing the transportation needs of people living in rural areas with dementia, there has been limited research in this area. In this chapter, we discuss the risks of driving with dementia, including the risks of collisions but also the adverse outcomes associated with cessation of driving. We summarize qualitative research about the particular challenges faced by those living in rural areas. We describe these challenges as experienced in Canada and Scotland, and present an innovative national partnership in Scotland aimed at providing dementia-friendly transportation alternatives. We conclude with recommendations for policy-makers, clinicians, researchers, people with dementia and their caregivers.
