You can do it!

Recently several people have talked with me about traveling with mobility limitations. In this world today, one has lots of options. Of course not all destinations have made accommodations accessible, but so many have. Let me know what are your needs and assistance and I can help arrange for you.

A cruise line this week indicated they would add a raised toilet seat, a shower chair and a small refrigerator for medication. We all know airports have lots of wheelchairs or mobile carts to assist in negotiating the large airports. I can easily arrange for you. Just remember there is no wheel chairs waiting at the curbside. One needs to go into the terminal. Or your traveling companion and driver can go into the terminal to obtain a wheelchair while you wait at the curb. If a police person comes along just explain and they will understand.

Tour guides are everywhere and very accommodating. They know the back entrances, elevators and ramps that may not be open to the general public. Even in hotels, not all services, like a pool, are handicap reachable by the general public. Just ask. There are service elevators that go everywhere. And someone will be pleased to assist you. No hotel wants a bad report.

I travel with a cpap machine, and more than once i asked for an extension as the outlets are too far from the bed.

The main message here is you can do it. Ask for what you need! Do not say ‘I or we cannot go because of physical or health limitations’. I have a client who travels with all her nourishment and one with an oxygen tank. With a little bit of help we can make it work.

Let me help you plan your next wonderful holiday today. As they say ‘tomorrow may never come.’ So where is your dream holiday?

PS Did you ever think of a rail holiday? Great way to have assistance?
