Tips for a Safe Trip

Receiving high-quality senior care in Georgia is good for the elderly, but they need to travel and see the world too. Traveling can be challenging for seniors because they have different needs. So here are some tips so you and your beloved elderly can have a safe and easy travel experience:

  • Talk to their healthcare provider
  • If you are traveling to a new timezone, ask for a new schedule for taking medication
  • Make a list of all prescription pills, OTCs, vitamins, and supplements, and make sure to write down the time of the day they must be taken
  • Have their medication with you on the plane
  • Keep the medication in their original containers with the labels

When you get back, make sure to tell your nurses from your trusted home health in Georgia about your recent travel.
