AccessABLE Travel And Doing Your Homework


Last holiday has taught me some valuable lessons about siutable for travel, I would like to share with you. My own temporary disability is only a couple of months ago gave me valuable first hand experience for the benefit of our readers.

My several decade career specialization, such as disability insurance consultant, gave me a unique perspective with active employees of client companies filing long-term disability (LTD) claims. We basically “fall” of disabled employees, filing LTD claims that do not understand the claims process.

“Against the wall”… a point is always disabled, since the “shock” we “cross the line” at one point. One minute, when we are healthy, we are coming off. This is in time, read this paragraph.

The most obvious impact on your “mind” began with the psychological impact, which is already not in perfect health, without any restrictions. In addition to the still negative impact on your health, it’ was likened to “walk the wall”. To disable addition to the physical and emotional trauma of always, then, has the immediate effect of a change in your lifestyle can be overwhelming to the strongest of souls.

As we come to the bedroom on the second floor in a wheelchair? She’s in the shower? Where we buy the rails for bathroom? And by whom are they established? For elderly people with arthritis of the hands, where do we find clothes or shoes with Velcro enclosure. They are most welcome, benefits for the elderly, fingers with arthritis.

In the worst conceivable time to his decision to adapt to a completely new, very different way of life.

When I was one month away from rotator cuff surgery, I could not use the arm normally. Public transportation de Gaulle airport in Paris to take led us to the “pipe” (rapid transit system beneath the streets of London). Arriving at our stop on the first floor of our hotel, and we found that there was no “lift” (Elevator to the street level). After dragging two heavy suitcases with one hand, to very steep stairs, I was grateful for my “good” hand.

After returning home, I went online and searched my first trips for people with disabilities. My first task was to pull out a map of London’s rapid transit system and a whole new world of possibilities appeared on my screen. This is a map of the whole London was-rapid transit system, where I could see all the stations had platforms (elevators).

I like the fact I was looking for, for hotels and bed-and-Breakfast, was in the immediate vicinity of the stations with elevators. Was disabled, I next time I would just make a few trips for people with disabilities planning a trip to London.

An important message is to do here, “homework”, before going on vacation. My assumption is that future holidays bring more fun then you could imagine.

The next part of my journey for people with disabilities the invitation to the Parkinson’s disease-a self-help group. So I created a guide on barrier-free travel, the young woman was online before my release and bio. She asked if I would be willing to say, a barrier-free trip for group of 40 to 50 people, consisted of patients with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers.

What I learned the next valuable lesson I anyone can offer any form of defect or disability that is used for travel, but did not stop, most likely. My Epiphany came when I simply asked if the support group members had no difficulty with their trips. What I heard next was “Yes”, it seems that everyone in the group had ended, travel included!

As my work will help in life, people file disability claims, I found there are many variations of the severity of Parkinson’s disease. I learned that it was the people who with the symptom that originally identified (Parkinson’s disease) diagnosis all therefore, those who are severely affected and completely disabled. It seems that the first diagnosis was a major factor in ending the trip. Perhaps an assumption was made that the continuation of the journey would be too much to do.

To the questions what happened, there was no way to know whether a conscious or unconscious decision was taken. I wondered if it was fear of the unknown or maybe it was provided, “he” (the trip) would be too much to handle. It was possible, its taking away from their doctors for treatment? Or was it just because of the fear of the unknown?

Another option I considered was to do as many of us feel more comfortable with a familiar environment. We’ve all heard the expression “custom animals”. For most people, we know that “home is where the heart is”. More than all of our hearts, our homes, where we feel most comfortable. The familiar surroundings bring us comfort.

Not all of us have favorite restaurants? I know there are at least three different routes that I go to my office, all approximately the same distance until I make a conscious effort to change my route.

Getting back with my Parkinson’s-self-help group experience, each participant with a spouse, parent or friend, who the caregivers were. I asked the audience to raise their hands who had Parkinson’s. Then I asked if it was daunting that the festival has ceased. It was mainly as a confirmation.

I totally understand, it can be observed a very disturbing, loved one before you decline health-wise. There is no way a relatively healthy person can fully assess the consequences of reduced health. The most important point I want to point out that you are the one who is more fragile Gebr due to the danger of the disease, note how they affect your life partner that you no longer paste into the vacation and confirm your attention, your care and lifestyle changes.
