In this vacation hour, Kelley Smith with CarePartners Senior Living talks about how to travel with your senior loved one to get them experiencing life once again. There’s still a lot of pandemic fear and lots of questions about bringing joy during a family trip. In this segment, Kelley talks about preparing for a trip. Bring a fact sheet listing their doctor, primary care physician, everyone that might need to be contacted in case of an emergency. Make sure you have a care plan, all the medications. Does the destination have everything in place should there be an emergency? Consider the conditions that might cause trouble if they have hearing, eyesight or mobility issues, because you don’t want to get there and have it be an unsafe, unpleasant time for all of you.
