Summer is here, and for many that means travel. Fortunately in South Florida, we dont have far to go to get to many premier destinations. Even though, in Fort Myers, we have excellent beaches just around the corner, travelling with a senior can present its own set of challenges. At Abby Services, in addition to helping local seniors find excellent caregivers, we also help visiting seniors find a short term caregiver to assist them during their stay. We can also help travelling seniors secure a caregiver to accompany them to their final destination.
Are you confused about what to consider when travelling with a senior? Don’t worry! This months tool is a useful tip sheet that will help you decide things to consider when travelling with seniors.
Abby Services can help people travelling to our area find excellent caregivers. The professional caregivers we work with are available for as little as 4 hours to assist with many things. Often when travelling with seniors family members are not prepared or suited to assist with their needs. This could include, bathing, feeding, transferring and ambulation. With a private caregiver, a family, and the seniors they love, can focus on enjoying each others company and have the help they need to be sure they are safe and properly supported.
On the surface, this seems simple however it can be very challenging. Here are some things to consider when requesting a caregiver to travel with you.
Often, many of the challenges of having a caregiver travel with a senior are solved by a trusted loved one or family member travelling with the senior. In this case, they have the resources and support to make the challenging and critical decisions that can and do sometimes arise. In this case, be sure to refer to our senior travel tip sheet to be prepared.
