In brief: RETest

If you are suspicious that driving might be dangerous; an anonymous report to the dmv would result in retesting for vision and driving skills.
Sometimes they are able to show that driving is still possible if limited to daytime driving or under special circumstances. This can get you as a family member out of the position of being the "bad guy" and provides an objective evaulation of them.
