    6 Gifts for Those Who Love to Travel

    gift ideas for travelers

    One of the great benefits of getting older is having more time to travel. But being older can make travel a little more difficult. The right product can make all the difference. Why don't you give them the thing they didn't know they needed to make that trip a little easier? 6 of my favorites. 

    • The Carbon Ultralight Rollator Walker-   Weighing in at only 11 pounds the Carbon Ultralight is made of strong carbon fiber. It folds for easy transport and comes in 3 colors and 3 widths. And you know what else? It is gorgeous. 

    • A Folding Travel Cane - A cane you can easily take with you. These folding canes can easily be put in a tote when wandering about or in a suitcase for the journey. In classic, modern and even pretty styles.
         

    • Metro Car Handle - Taking a road trip? Or maybe renting an unfamiliar car? Make it easy to get in and out on your own with the metro car handle. Works on any car without causing any damage. It is like having a stable armrest to push up from. Portable and perfect for the job.

       

                  

       

      • Buckingham Compact EasywipeA difficult problem with an easy solution. Getting clean after using the bathroom can be hard for a lot of reasons. The compact Easywipe can help. And it folds to half its size to fit in its discreet travel case. Don't let toileting difficulty keep you stuck in your home. 

      • The Rollz Motion - A walker and wheelchair chair in one. The Rollz converts from a rollator walker to a transport chair in under a minute without tools. You will never have to choose between bring a walker and a wheelchair again.

      Benefits of Compression Socks for Travel

       

      are compression socks good for travel?

      Do you find that traveling, especially long-distance, is hard on your legs?

      One of the reasons for this is that you spend a long time sitting still on such journeys. Limited movement results in reduced blood flow, especially in your legs. Not only is this uncomfortable, it can also lead to circulation problems like Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or formation of blood clots in deep veins.

      The risk of developing such complications increases on long-haul flights, as cramped spaces and raised cabin pressure further contribute to the issue. Fortunately, we have a simple solution to keep these likely problems at bay—Compression Socks!

      Compression Socks are special, snug-fitting socks that put gentle pressure on the blood vessels in your legs, allowing them to work better. They slightly squeeze the foot and calf muscles, thus improving the blood flow. This also prevents blood from pooling in one place and forming clots. When you wear compression socks for flying, they also support the legs and keep them from become tired and sore.

      Health benefits aside, the best part is that compression socks are no longer dull or ugly. Instead, there are many fashionable and colorful choices to suit every taste. The stylish options available today make it easy to incorporate compression socks into your wardrobe. They easily pass off as fashionable hosiery, allowing you to seamlessly blend them in with the rest of your outfit.

      Which compression socks are right for you? Learn about the different types in this post. 

      Whether you prefer solid colors, floral prints, funky modern designs or smart details, we have a stunning variety of options for you to choose from. Click here to check it out for yourself. 

      Make our compression socks your constant companion and look great while you indulge in the fun of traveling without having to worry about your feet again!

      8 Tips for Summer Travel by Car with Seniors

      8 tips for summer road trips with seniors

      Millions of people will hit the road this summer. Whether it be a visit to family or a getaway for relaxation or adventure, there is no reason to let physical limitations restrict your travel. In addition to making sure your car is properly serviced and ready for the trip, here are more tips for traveling by car:

      • Check your cellular provider’s coverage map to assure your phone will work along your journey and at your destination. Make sure you have a car and a wall charger.
      • Pack extra water and snacks in case of a delay. If you will be traveling in warm weather, having plenty of fluids available is crucial. Many medications need to be taken with food so make sure there is a snack handy at pill time.
      • Keep medication in an easy to reach spot to help ensure you stay on schedule. 
      • Bring a copy of medication and any other important medical records just in case.
      • The Metro Car Handle make it easy to get out of the car by providing something to push on- like the solid armrest of a chair. As an occupational therapist, I get nervous when I see people grabbing on to the door to help themselves up. The door moves and could land you right back in the seat or on the ground!
      • Wear layers and plan for changes. The weather can change in a heartbeat here in the Midwest with summer storms. Allow for layers that can be put on or taken off and pack something for rain.
      • Allow extra time. Summer is construction season in many states. It may take you longer to get to your destination than you anticipate. Take the stress out of travel and allow extra time.
      • Plan for flexibility. Strict time tables and rushing around can cause unnecessary stress. Travel affects everyone differently so allow time for breaks if you or a travel companion starts to feel fatigued. Falls, illness and disorientation are common when elderly people get too tired.

      With these tips your summer journey will be fun and safe for everyone.


      Enjoy!
