Whether you want to spend time around the area or travel somewhere else, there are many things to consider when traveling with a senior. They and the entire family will benefit much from travel support care.
Comfort is one of the things we must ensure during travels. And when we speak of comfort, that includes the essentials you need to bring with you on board. And here are some of the things you must carry:
- Emergency kits and medications
Never forget to bring their prescription, maintenance medicines, and a first aid kit. You never know what will happen along the way, and emergency kits can help for temporary relief. Bring toiletries and other personal care products.
- Comfortable outfits
Clothing can make or break your convenience when traveling. Wearing lightweight clothes like a cotton shirt on a hot and sunny day or a sweater on a cold night may provide the comfort your seniors need.
- Folding cane with seat
A cane with a seat can provide relief to seniors during long walks.
- Food and water
Seniors might get cranky when hungry and thirsty. Non-medical home care providers must not forget to pack some grub and water bottles should the family decides to go on long trips.
- Extra batteries and power bank
Bring extra batteries for hearing aids, thermometers, and other essentials. Do not forget to bring a power bank to charge your phones.
