When traveling with a senior, thoughtful planning can ensure a smoother experience for both of you. Here’s a concise checklist to keep in mind:

  1. Medical History: Keep the elderly person’s medical history handy. Compile essential information on your phone, including existing health issues, blood group, health insurance details, medications, vaccination records, and any history of surgery. Also, carry emergency contact information for their doctor. It’s advisable to write this information on paper and keep it in the senior person’s wallet as a backup.

  2. Be patient and Flexible: Understand that what’s easy for you might be challenging for them. Be prepared ready for frequent rest breaks and a slower pace. Adjust the itinerary to accommodate their needs.

  3. Senior-Friendly Accommodation: Before booking accommodation, check senior-friendly services. Look for elevators, non-slip floors, wheelchairs, and accessible entrances.

  4. Comfortable Footwear: Ensure they have comfortable shoes suitable for waking and exploring.

  5. Protection from Weather: Pack jackets, beanies, socks, and other items to protect against cold weather. Check the weather forecast in advance and pack accordingly.

  6. Hydration and Snacks: Carry bottled water and snacks to keep them hydrated and energized during the trip.

Remember, travelling with seniors can be immensely rewarding. With a little extra care and consideration, you can create beautiful memories together. We can suggest you some great senior friendly places that you can plan for.
