When others say you’re too old to travel, don’t listen to them. You deserve to enjoy the beauty of nature, experience fun outdoor activities, and indulge in others’ unique, colorful, and rich culture despite your age. With this, Providence Care Home, Inc., your senior care in Skokie, Illinois, would like to share some of these safety tips for traveling seniors:
- Be wary of your food consumption.
Don’t give in to foods that are not on your recommended diet. Older adults have more sensitive tummies so you might want to skip heavy, spicy, and cheesy foods to prevent bowel problems.
- Don’t forget your meds.
Place your medications inside your hand-carry bag so they’re accessible anytime. In instances you’re not familiar with the names and dosages of your medications, write them down so you can buy them if you’re out of them, but it’s better to bring extra in case your flights get delayed.
- Dress up but not too much.
Wearing fancy clothes, blinding jewelry, and too much accessories makes you an easy target for pickpockets. We understand you want to look good on pictures but even on simple clothes, you’ll be able to achieve it with perfect lighting, background, and angle. Enough cash, a simple handbag for your things, and a smartphone to take pictures will do. Wear flats as well to avoid spraining your ankles and tripping.
Remember these safety travel tips and you’re good to go. Don’t worry if your memory begins deteriorating soon because you’ll always remember these memories in your heart. Hence, make as many memories as you can while caregivers of this home care in Illinois accompany you wherever you go.
