Welcome! My name is Kate. I have traveled with my grandparents my whole life. My grandmother is now 93 and has strength and mobility issues. We just returned from a trip to Palm Springs California that was very challenging for a variety of reasons. We had a great time, largely because of Grandma’s terrific attitude and fortitude, but it could have been better.
Reflecting on our trip, and many others I have taken with my grandparents as they aged and their abilities drifted downhill, I thought it would be nice to see if I could create a place for people who travel with the elderly (or others who are mobility impaired) to share stories, lessons learned and tips. Our trip to PS could have gone more smoothly if I knew then (all of two weeks ago) what I know now.
This is my Purpose in starting this blog.
