Elder travel

There are a number of things to consider about elder travel:

-it is a good idea to accept wheelchair assistance

-it is a good idea to provide copies of the itinerary to family members

-explore units with kitchenettes, some hotels also offer a shopping service, which is a good way to avoid having to carry heavy items such as oil or milk, and other staples

-consider cruising, cruise ships are “floating hotels” offering a myriad of services such as doctors, nurses, hairdressing, lectures, wine tasting, and cooking classes

-elders with pets (under 70 pounds) should consider the QM2 (Queen Mary 2) which accepts pets

-after the trip, involve your elders in writing online reviews

-if long-distance travel seems too daunting, consider local gettaways

Bon Voyage !
