Adventures

Biggest Challenge: Different type adventures

--Angela

Response from DM:

Dear Angela:

I am answering your challenge from the perspective of traveling. Members of the senior population may have grandchildren that they want to visit and/or vacation with. No matter what someone's physical issues may be, we are now, as a society, sensitive to those who have disabilities or special needs, no matter what manifestation they take. All of the national parks are equipped to deal with wheelchairs, and are fully accessible. The parks will grant special access and special services if given proper notice of the particular individual’s needs. The internet has a vast array of information under such headings as: 

  • Travel for seniors
  • Disabled seniors
  • Disabled travel
  • AARP travel center (special rates for 50+)
  • Tips for traveling with disabled seniors
  • Disabled travel companions
  • Senior Cruise Information: Expedia, Cruise Ship Centers
  • Vacation deals by Elderhostel
  • Elderhostel Travel: Learning Adventures for the Over 55 crowd
  • Road Scholar: Educational Travel in the U.S.
  • Grandparent Getaways: Trips to take with your grandchildren

Traveling is a wonderful adventure, and so much more fun if you can share the experience with someone. 

Enjoy,

Dr. Marion
