Travel, Transport and Holidays
Living with MND presents many challenges and travelling is no exception. Whether making a short trip or going on a longer holiday, accessibility of transport is important. If staying away from home, the same applies to accommodation.
Comfort, dignity and the avoidance of delays all depend on asking the right questions to determine suitability of provision. Find out if appropriate facilities are on offer before booking transport or accommodation, as this will help you to avoid costly errors. It is also extremely important to give all service providers plenty of notice if special arrangements need to be made.
It can be difficult for someone living with MND to explain their needs when abroad. The Doctor Babel website enables individuals to create a simple medical record online that can be translated accurately into many languages, then printed off.
