Travel

To make a journey.
  • Many people plan to travel after retirement, but you may not be covered for prescriptions, routine treatments, or a healthcare emergency depending on your destination and the nature of your Medicare coverage.
  • A caregiver’s story: I recently found out the hard way that a vacation with a dementia patient isn’t much of a vacation after all.
  • When you're a caregiver you might think that taking a vacation with an elderly parent or relative who requires special care is out of the question. But a little planning can go a long way towards making a trip safe and enjoyable.
  • Cruise vacations are a great option for seniors because they can do as much or as little as they want, depending on their level of ability. See how you can adapt a getaway on the high seas to fit the entire family’s needs and interests.
  • Traveling with a senior can be difficult, especially when you have to go through airport security with elderly medical devices. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will begin implementing new screening guidelines for the elderly.
  • You don't have to cancel the family vacation just because a loved one is getting older. Transportation options, activities and accommodations may need to be adapted, but with some planning, taking a trip with a senior can be a wonderful experience.
