  • Do they require more assistance or supervision than you did six months ago ?
  • When they travel will they always be accompanied ?

This will allow us to provide you with an accurate quote that covers the medical condition.

Travel Advice

There are some considerations to be taken into account when travelling with someone who has Alzheimers or Dementia.

If they require any medication, make sure that they or you carry it and do not leave it in the hold luggage which they or you may get separated from.

Most Airlines say that if someone has a stable or permanent medical condition, they do not require medical clearance, however check with the Airline before you travel. Some require that people suffering from Alzheimers do not travel alone, if there is a possibility they may become stressed whilst in the air.

Flight staff also do not offer assistance with eating, medical needs or going to the toilet so if they require this form of assistance, they will not let them travel alone.

If they are travelling with a Carer and wish to visit friends or relatives, it may be worth having a plan plan with the people they are staying with to see if anyone can spend regular time with them or help at specific times to give them and their Carer a break.

If there is a Carer travelling with the person who has Alzheimers, they can be added to the same policy even if the do not have Alzheimers or any other pre existing medical conditions.

If they are planning independent travel, you may wish to book outside of season as the staff should then be less busy and have more time to help accommodate their needs.

You should inform the Hotel you are staying at of their health requirements and check it is the right place for them.

Alternatively, you could book a package holiday where everything is arranged for you. Should you choose to do this, again check with the Travel Agent and Hotel that it is the right holiday for them and that staff at the hotel will be able to accommodate their needs and provide the help required.

There are Holiday and Travel Services specifically designed for people who need special support such as Alzheimers.
