Summer is here and many are ready to travel - seniors included!
Summer is right around the corner and many people are planning vacations and getting ready to travel...seniors included! Seniors travel for many different reasons. They may:
Want to to see family and friends.
Go somewhere they have always wanted to go that they have never been.
Have set vacations with their entire family (multigenerational)
Want to travel to keep active.
Whatever the reason, if you are a spouse, family member, or caregiver, there are definitely certain things that you DO NOT want to leave behind. Have you ever been on a vacation and forgotten a toothbrush? That's a "well-duh!" item that is not on this list. However, the following might want to be considered if you are traveling:
Hearing aid batteries
Medical information/list of doctors and specialists
Medical devices/durable medical equipment
Extra pillows and cushions.
Remembering these things will definitely make your senior loved one's trip more enjoyable.
