Fly-Along Companions Offer a Way for Older People to Travel

New York, NY (Sept. 26, 2017) – FirstLight Home Care was featured in a New York Times story about the “cropping up” of traveling companions for older adults. The story highlights the benefits of services like FirstLight’s Travel Companion Program, which provides assistance with the activities of travel for seniors, as well as people with disabilities and those recovering from an injury, surgery or illness.

According to the story, “Whether it is older people on vacation or grandparents wanting to join their far-flung families for weddings and graduations, there is a growing number of seniors willing to travel but needing help moving through airport security lines, managing luggage and navigating busy terminals and bustling hotel lobbies.”

Rebecca Rushing, FirstLight’s director of client care services, is quoted in the story.
