Home Healthcare Company Shares Tips to Ensure a Safe and Enjoyable Travel Experience

SUNRISE, Fla., Sept. 29, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- The holiday travel season is upon us and according to recent reports, more than 40 million Americans are expected to travel during the Thanksgiving holiday season alone. But for many seniors, managing their health, safety, and mobility requirements while traveling can become a daunting task. However, there are several ways seniors can ensure a safe and stress-free travel experience.

Interim HealthCare, the nation's first and finest home healthcare franchise company, offers the following tips for seniors and caregivers planning their next upcoming trip:

Avoid stress from walking long distances by calling the airport to schedule transportation throughout the terminals. All airports offer wheelchairs or cart rides for passengers needing assistance. Pack important medications in a carry-on bag in case your luggage gets lost or stolen.Utilize a pillbox marked with the days of the week, as your daily routine will probably be disrupted while you are away from home.Wear comfortable clothing to allow blood circulation while traveling. Items that are too tight, such as socks or stockings could increase the risk of blood clots.Be sure to drink plenty of water to avoid feeling fatigue while traveling.Consult with your doctor for a complete medical check-up prior to your vacation. If you suffer from diabetes it is very important to speak with your doctor about managing doses if you will be traveling to different time zones. If driving long distances, be sure to make frequent rest stops to stretch. It's also very important to have contact person back home with a copy of your travel itinerary in case of an emergency.To help reduce the risk of food poisoning while traveling, avoid street vendors, buffets, undercooked meats and peeled raw fruits and vegetables.
