Summer Vacation With Elderly, Disabled Family Members Means Additional Planning, Considerations for Caregivers
Date:5/26/2010

er pace and designating certain times for rest can reduce stress for the whole family. In addition, many hotels and resorts offer a wide range of activities so people of all ages and abilities can have a great time together – and separately – at one location.  

When a caregiver needs a vacation and an elderly or disabled family member stays home, respite care is one option to consider. Many retirement homes offer respite care or can arrange daily home visits to aid in washing, dressing, and meal preparation. Enlisting other family members to help when possible provides the benefit of familiarity for the person receiving care.  

As caregivers consider travel plans, Wilson offers the following tips:  

  • Consider whether you need and can afford professional assistance from a travel agent, an aide who can travel with you, or a skilled respite worker.
  • When flying, allow for longer connection times and arrange for cart transportation. When driving, allow for more frequent stops for eating, stretching, and using the restroom.
  • Be aware of medication side effects, such as susceptibility to the sun or interaction with certain foods. Traveling typically means exposure to different climates and cuisines.
  • Work with your hotel or resort to request an appropriate room. Depending on your needs, this might mean a first floor room, adjoining rooms, wheelchair or stroller accessibility, or proximity to an elevator.
  • Involve all family members in selecting activities and destinations. Giving each person a 'top pick' helps everyone feel part of the process and ensures a good range of activities.
  • Regardless of whether your loved one travels or stays home, supplies should be stocked and plentiful. The CareGiver Partnership's automatically scheduled delivery service, Never Run Out(SM),
