Do You Need A Travel Companion?

Summer has finally arrived, and with it brings all the things we love about the season.
Graduations, weddings, and trips to tropical paradises have filled our calendars waiting for the cold of winter to release its grasp and give way  to warmer weather.  It is a time of getting together with family and friends and celebrating each other’s company.  However, for many seniors who live across the country from their families, it can be stressful time as well.

Everyone knows the stress that traveling entails; making your flight on time, getting through airport security, and remembering where you put your ticket. For seniors, the stress of travel is often amplified to the point that it makes them unable to travel, and sadly it keeps many from participating in these family events that we all enjoy.  In order to make sure no family is without their loved ones due to an inability to travel, FirstLight Home Care provides a service called Travel Companion that helps make sure your aging parent’s travel is as safe and stress-free as possible.

With Travel Companion, FirstLight Home Care’s extraordinary caregivers aid your parents along their journey.  From helping with travel to providing companionship along the way, our caregivers ensure your parents have a safe and enjoyable trip, the way it should be.  Whether your parents are going on a cruise, staying at a resort, or visiting family or friends, no trip is too challenging for our caregivers, and we strive to make their vacation or visit as comfortable as possible.  Don’t let travel apprehension stop your loved ones from enjoying time spent with family or enjoy a peaceful trip.  If you have an aging parent and are worried for their safety and care while traveling, Contact us today to see how we can help.
