Encourage a parent to talk to his or her physician, other relatives and trusted friends. If that doesn't do it and you're worried, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles in your state. The rules vary, but in some cases a license can be revoked, at least temporarily. Don't forget to replace it with a state identification card.
As a last resort, remove access to the car. That's tougher to do. But sometimes it works.
Make sure they use alternative forms of transportation occasionally before they have to give up the keys, so they're not intimidated or uncomfortable. Point out that it doesn't mean you can't stay in your home as long as there are other transportation choices available. It also helps to live in a neighborhood with sidewalks and with stores and amenities close by.
