I've spent the last 2 years as my mom's primary caregiver and when it comes to vacations, they can either be a nightmare or a dream depending on the help. In my family, we like to bring as many people as possible since I have 3 kids and my mom and my sister has one so its a help. With so many people travelling, its always important for us to keep in touch with each other and that includes my mom. I was shocked at how adament she was that she have a cell phone to keep in touch with us in case she wanted to seperate during the vacation. I under-estimated how active she was and thought possibly she was right, so I did a little research for her and found out her options. Expense wise, we chose a prepaid phone from the Tracfone/SVC line that costs about $7 a month to keep active for her or the phone is deactivated. This Christmas we are all spending it in Disney World so this will be her first test.

These are excellent reminders. Indeed travelling with an elderly love one takes a lot of advance planning. In my case, I always make sure to do a checklist so I won't forget anything. And I always make sure that each day are planned ahead of time and on a per hour basis to be on the safe side.
