Prep Ahead for Your Most Anticipated Trip with a Loved One
For people with disabilities, traveling can be quite a challenge. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t let that stop you from exploring places with your loved ones, especially with how beautiful Chicago and Wisconsin get in the springtime.
With wheelchair accessible transportation services, you can set yourself and your loved ones up for a stress-free and enjoyable experience.
Plan ahead with these tips for the best accessible trips!
Make Arrangements Ahead of Time
Scout out destinations and accommodations with accessible rooms and toilets. If you’re traveling via plane, don’t forget to ask in advance about airport ramps and elevators. They may not always be in obvious places. You should also secure wheelchair accessible transportation services as early as possible so you can travel with ease.
Understand the Rights of People with Disabilities
If you’re traveling outside the country or even just out-of-state, regulations for a person with disabilities may differ. It’s important to do your research before hitting the road. Make sure to check out the travel information for your destination, as well as any specific policies for mobility devices like wheelchairs and portable machines.
Don't Forget the Meds!
If your loved one needs regular or daily medications, make sure you have more than enough for your trip, especially if taking an extra detour here and there is on the table. Check with their healthcare provider for instructions on dosing, and be sure to alert your airline of any medications you’ll be carrying.
Tip: Always pack the meds and essential items in a hand-carry bag in case the check-in luggage goes missing.
