Holidays For The Elderly
Seable Holidays offers a select range of breaks and trips specifically for the elderly travellers. For many, the later years in life are a time to fulfill long standing travel ambitions and enjoy the freedom that retirement brings and whilst arranging holidays can be a more difficult process when you’re older, it doesn’t have to be!
Elderly Holidaymakers booking holidays
When booking holidays for the elderly, do not assume that we know everything about your needs. This must be clearly explained at the time of booking to avoid any disappointment.
Many elderly people find themselves stuck for travelling companions and due to fear of being alone in an unfamiliar place, no longer take holidays. Others simply can’t travel without assistance. In these instances, holidays for the elderly are made possible with Seable. We will provide a travel companion on ever holiday happy to accompany on trips and meals out.
Holidays For Elderly And Disabled People
Everyone enjoys a holiday but as people get older or have a disability, knowing where to find appropriate holiday accommodation can be difficult. Putting some thought into what you want and need before you make the phone call or book a holiday will ensure that your holiday plans will be more enjoyable.
An elderly or disabled person seeking holiday accommodation needs to explain clearly when considering booking exactly what their care needs are. Never assume that the person on the end of the phone knows!
For example, wheelchair accessibility may be fine, however what if you do not use a wheelchair but your mobility is poor with reference to flat access and ground floor room availability?
Do you need to ask about a floor level shower or hoist facilities? Is there a raised toilet facility or an alarm system in case you need help? Are the staff trained to help or do you need to have a carer or use family/friends help? If you are blind or deaf, is information available in Braille or is there a member of staff who can use sign language? If you need to take a carer with you, ask if there is a reduction in the price for your carer.
Many elderly or disabled people wishing to retain holiday independence but needing some care whilst they are on holiday choose to take a live-in carer with them. If you don’t want to, we will provide a companion to accompany you to places in Sicily.
