Dear Searching, Traveling can be daunting under the best circumstances but for eld- erly seniors, those with disabilities, or those recovering or rehabilitating from an illness or injury, it can seem particularly overwhelming or un- manageable. Fortunately, there are a number of companies that provides travel- mg companion/escort services to help older adults with the rigors of travel. Whether it's seniors going on va- cation or grandparents wanting to join their far-off families for wed- dings and graduations, travel com- panions help clients who need help moving through airports, managing luggage, navigating busy terminals and hotel lobbies and inuch more. Some companion services even provide personal care like medica- tion reminders, dressing, bathing and feeding. And for those with specif ic medical needs, traveling nurse services are available too. But be aware that these services aren't cheap. You will pay for the travel companion's tickets, the com- panion's hotel room if necessary, meals, incidentals and fees for the service.
