Involving Family and Friends

Finding you way around on well-known or even on routes juts travelled once is a skill we all take for granted. It can be unnerving to find that it is no longer automatic. Family and friends may have started to notice your difficulties, because you have been late at social or work events, or perhaps they were with you when you couldn’t find your way somewhere.

You may be able to overcome these problems yourself, using Satnavs when driving and making sure that you have maps with you when you are walking somewhere. But if your family, or your work colleagues, know in advance that remembering routes can catch you out, they can help if an unexpected route needs to be walked or driven.
