How to make summer vacations with aging parents enjoyable for everyone.
Traveling with your aging Mom and/or Dad on summer vacation or any other time of the year can be similar to taking an infant or a toddler. Extra things to pack, more to plan and prepare and lots of safety precautions. But there’s still a great chance to have a good time.
Kim and Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents talk to Jennifer Prescott of Blue Water Homecare and Hospice about how to prepare for a trip, whether it’s by plane or by car and how to manage once you’re there. She shares a handy TSA tip to help get through airport security.
Jennifer is a registered nurse and has a lot of experience, including taking her mother-in-law who has Dementia on family vacations through the years. She has lots of ideas and suggestions to help make the trip the best it can be.
