Holiday travel with care recipients

Are you and your care recipient going to be spending time with relatives at their home this holiday season? You might consider if you should take a few minutes before hand to discuss with your relative if there are any areas of concern involving the care recipient while you are there.

Things to consider might be if your care recipient is at high risk for a fall and there is a open stairway or steps from one room into another. Do they use a powered wheelchair? You might let your host know what the turn capability on the chair is so they can check their floor areas and see if there is anything that might need to be moved during the holidays.
