Vacation with Elderly Parents: Do's and Don'ts

Posted 05-13-2013 at 01:47 AM by rajnish
While we all have vacationed with friends and have acquired plenty of holiday planning experience, taking elderly parents on a vacation can ask for completely different checklist. Aged people have different needs and thus special efforts are required to make the trip worthwhile. So, whether you are heading for Hawaii or Bahamas, here are the points that you need to consider;

Book everything in advance

You might be at top of your health to run hither and thither for taxi but sadly your parents are not that young anymore. They simply cannot tag along in your escapade to find a hotel room in a busy holiday season and thus you need to make reservations in advance. Be it hotel bookings or transfer from airport, it would be wise to plan everything beforehand. Some international resorts offer quick airport transfer facility. So, you can look for them.

Book family resorts

While any type of hotel or resort would do for youngsters, elderly people prefer a quiet place with less hustle bustle. Resorts that cater to families keep people of all ages in mind and make provision for their good stay. Amiable staff also takes every step to make their stay comfortable.

Don't forget medications

As time passes, medications no longer remain an option. Don't forget the stock of medicines prescribed to your parents. Seniors also don't go very smoothly with new food and climate. So, it would help to pack over-the-counter medication for bad stomach, nausea and similar travel related hiccups. Also consult the family doctor to get his approval for long travel.

Plan new experiences

There are vacation destinations all over the world that offer unique experiences. Rio de Janeiro is known for its carnivals while Kashmir is famous for its natural beauty & heritage. Maldives on the other hand brings gorgeous beaches, rich culture, adventure options, and luxurious accommodation. . Whichever place you decide, make sure your parents get experiences suited to their age.

Don't rush

On the day of leaving for your tropical holiday, make sure you don't rush seniors around. Leave the home early if you are catching a flight. Haste can lead to stress and can spoil the holiday mood for other family members. Also, keep time at your disposal so that you don't forget things at the last minute.
Family vacations can be fun as well if one goes ahead with right mindset and planning. While above points cover some important areas, choosing the right destination is also critical. So, plan ahead and have fun-filled holidays.
