Whether you're planning an extended trip or just getting out of town for a few days, it's always fun to enjoy a vacation with family and friends. Of course, if your group includes an elderly or disabled travel partner with special requirements, you do need to account for that person's unique needs. Comfort is critical and it's important to not stray too far from his or her routine; plus, there may be specific medical care and wellness considerations while you're on the road. However, armed with this checklist for vacationing with an elderly or disabled person, you can head out of town for a worry-free, fun trip with loved ones.
