It is worth collecting, and the list necessary for the middle-aged and elderly to travel

It’s the peak tourist season again. Do retired old friends want to start looking for some places to avoid the summer heat and take a small vacation? If you are going to be with your parents as a child, or if you are helping your parents to arrange a trip, what should what pay special attention to? If it is a middle-aged and elderly friend with chronic diseases, what precautions do you have? I. Travel Arrangement and Transportation 1. Travel Arrangement: Avoid travel [always on the road], stop at major scenic spots appropriately, or reserve half a day’s rest after 1-2 days of visit; If you are traveling to a place with time difference, you can choose a relatively easy trip at the beginning so that your body can slowly adapt to the local weather and time difference. 2. Means of transportation: Considering comfort and convenience, trains should be the first choice, especially for long-distance travel of more than 10 hours. Trains with sleepers can not only have a good rest, but also have a certain range of activities. Large cruise ships are another recommendation. If there are options such as going to sea and roundabout, they can be considered. 3. Accommodation: You can call in advance to inquire about the availability of elevators, the hardness of room mattresses and other details; If there are elderly people with mobility difficulties, ask if there is a special passage for wheelchairs. 4. Companions: Avoid traveling alone, and try to arrange companions to take care of them. 2. Preparation before departure 1. Understand the local weather forecast, prepare clothes as needed, and pay special attention to comfortable shoes; 2. Write the emergency contact person on a small notebook or a small card and set up an emergency dial on the parents’ mobile phone. 3. Give parents enough money for their mobile phones. They may need emergency calls outside, which costs a lot, but it may not be convenient to pay. 4. Help parents to copy and back up their certificates and other documents and keep them separately from the original ones, so as to prevent them from being lost on the road and go through relevant formalities in time. 5. It is suggested to purchase insurance, especially the type of emergency medical assistance, which can be used for emergency when traveling abroad or to remote places. 3. Before patients with chronic diseases leave, 1. Discuss with doctors in advance, consult whether they are suitable for traveling and what kind of travel they are suitable for, and then decide on the itinerary; 2. If you need to take medicine for a long time, you can communicate with your doctor first and make sure to prepare enough medicine. Please take the medicine with you and do not put it in your checked baggage. Please ask your doctor to issue a certificate of your illness in case of emergency. 3. Prepare some commonly used drugs, such as antipyretics, antidiarrheal drugs, carsickness drugs, etc. 4. Patients with diabetes can bring some snacks. If necessary, they can consider bringing a blood glucose test meter to check blood glucose regularly. 5. Tell relatives and friends or tour guides about their illness and must not hide it. 4. During the journey 1. Do not wear too tight shoes and socks for a long time to avoid hindering blood circulation; 2. You can bring your own neck pillow and lay your feet flat as far as possible when sitting down to avoid posture such as crossing your legs for a long time. 3. When flying, you can ask the stewardess for a thin blanket or bring your own long sleeves. It may be cooler on the plane. 4. Take small cups with you and drink more water. 5. Get up and move when you have the opportunity to prevent deep vein thrombosis or joint stiffness; 6. Patients suffering from chronic diseases must not forget to take medicine on time during the journey. 7. After boarding the plane, you can book a wheelchair pick-up with the stewardess to arrive at the airport. 5. Being out of town 1. After check-in, you should remember to send a message or make a phone call to your family to tell the switchboard number and room number, or the contact information of the local emergency contact person (such as tour guide); 2. When leaving the hotel, take your accommodation address and telephone number with you in case you forget it. 3. If you can’t sleep due to jet lag and other problems, you must not use a large amount of alcohol to help you sleep without authorization. You can take a small amount of sleeping pills or melatonin prescribed by the doctor, but please ensure that you have consulted the doctor and do not take the medicine yourself. 4. Tell them that they can love their grandchildren and want to buy something, but don’t be cheated and be on guard. 5. Try not to act alone, especially in unfamiliar, remote places or at night. 6. Entertainment and catering 1. Try to maintain a balanced diet and avoid foods with high fat and cholesterol. 2. Drink more water and choose more high-fiber foods, such as vegetables and fruits, to prevent constipation; 3. If you have unsuitable tastes or discomfort, don’t be afraid to be embarrassed. You should bring it up with your colleagues and choose your own activities. 4. Before taking part in some activities with high exercise volume or high risk, one must measure one’s health status and ability and do what one can. I wish all parents a good time and their children peace of mind.
