SENIOR TRAVEL COMPANION/ESCORT SERVICES

HELPING ELDERLY TRAVEL

There are many benefits of having a trained Senior Friendly Travel Companion fly with your loved one. We are there to serve as professional companions and as strong advocates as well as traveling caregivers for the entire trip.

Travel companions offer services ranging from pick-up, delivery and check-in assistance to actually traveling with you or your loved one and ensuring a smooth flight and a safe and secure arrival at the final destination. Other services might range from someone willing to drive your car back while you fly home, or connect with their loved ones who live in other cities without sending them alone.

Families have found that navigating the transportation systems can be challenging. Many people may not know the availability and advantages of Professional Travel Companions. Families on the hunt for ways to connect with family members that can not travel alone because of aging years, illness or injury will be excited to know that a Senior Friendly Travel Companion can fly with Mom, Dad or Grandma from other parts of the country to the Chicago area or from the Chicago area to any destination.
