I have been reading about the nightmares that can happen when very frail seniors travel by air. What would be better alternatives if I were to bring my 87-year-old mother with Stage 1 Parkinson's from California to Arkansas if my stepfather passes before she does? There is a lovely ALF in Hot Springs where I could visit her daily. Mom is of sound mind, walks with a cane and uses Depends.
I read the article on this site about hiring a private ambulance ("ambulette") but the cost would be prohibitive. Car travel would take days with many bathroom and stretching stops and overnight accommodations. Has anyone traveled with a senior on Amtrak? Suggestions are welcome.
