New, just selling, Active Senior Communities often offer 2 or 3 day a vacations at reasonable rates to try out the community and the offered amenities.
Congregate, Assisted Living or CCRC communities offer opportunities for vacation stays for:
Respite Care and/or short
term vacation opportunites are available in some Active Retirement,
Independent, Congregate, Assisted Living, CCRC Communities and Alzheimer's
communities. In addition to the usual reservations made ahead for any
vacation stay, special medical arrangements must be made in advance
when care is required.
Respite care is also available in places that specialize in Respite Care and in conjunction with Senior Day Care providers. Special care-related arrangements must be made in advance.
Special care-related arrangements include:
Hotel Federal Handicapped Regulations
Federal laws require new hotels to accommodate the handicapped. The degree to which they do so varies. Check with individual hotels to see what handicapped facilities they offer. An elevator may not be enough to meet someone's needs.
Medicare and Senior Travel
Medicare may not pay medical expenses incurred outside the United States or Canada. Being abroad may also affect supplemental coverage. Check what is and is not covered before you travel abroad. Supplemental travel insurance may be an affordable option.
Be prepared for medical emergencies while traveling!
