Travelling with an elderly parent can come with some real challenges, but it can also be very rewarding. Vacations are a great way of bonding closer together and providing your loved ones with amazing memories. By including your parent or parents in your vacation plans, you get to give them a real sense of belonging, and for the elderly, isolation and loneliness can be very real worries.
