Insights from The Orlando Senior Help Desk Traveling with someone in a wheelchair

 


Traveling when you’re caring for someone in a wheelchair requires a more planning ahead.

Hotel Tips

When booking a hotel, ask if they have accessible rooms available. This may require booking over the phone because sometimes you can’t select for disability online. Confirm with the hotel that their accessible room has the features you need.

Road Trip Tips

If you’re driving very far, rest stops are inevitable. Not all of them are handicap accessible, so preplan your rest stops.

If you have a commode chair that is smaller than the wheelchair, try to find a way to take it with you.
