Fly Safely With Senior Transitions[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="111"] Gale Wald[/caption] Boarding a flight today is complex-- long security lines and two hour check-ins. It’s a challenging atmosphere for people with early stage dementia or major health problems, explained Senior Transitions owner, Gale Wald. Wald, an RN and practicing flight attendant, provides travel companionship and trip coordination services to seniors and their families. “You don’t have to do this alone,” she says with confident assurance. Her company, Senior Transitions, is based in the Pacific Northwest. Her services provide door to door flight companionship which may also include aspects of trip planning: ticket purchase, food, transportation, health clearance, luggage check-in, or travel insurance. Travel companions are skilled at managing in-air emergencies or troubleshooting flight delays and cancellations. Air Travel companions arrange quick trips through TSA security and know how to bypass pat downs. Awaiting families or friends receive trip updates as desired. "With detailed sensitivity to personal needs such as frequent toileting, help through confusing customs and security checks, lunch at the favourite spot, always mindful of his physical stamina and comfort, Gale has facilitated the ‘quality of life choice to travel’ for my father," writes one of Senior Transition's satisfied clients.
