Holidays

 

Most of India is disabled unfriendly.  Not surprisingly, India is also senior unfriendly.  In this section, we are going to showcase holiday destinations and resorts that provide a accessible, safe and comfortable environment for our senior customers and those with limited mobility issues.

Here are a few things we are going to assess resorts and holiday destinations on:

1. Approach. Is the route to the resort convenient? Does it involve a long road trip to reach the destination?  What are the road conditions?  Is the place easily accessible by train and plane? Are the arrival and departure timings convenient?

2.  Accessibility.  Is the resort wheelchair friendly?  Are all areas of the resort, such as the rooms, restaurants, recreation rooms, the born-fire/outdoor venues, the swimming pool easily accessible?  Are the roads and paths smooth or not?  Are there elevators to reach different levels?  Are the elevators large enough to accommodate a wheelchair?

3.  Doctor/Emergency health support.  Is there an in-house doctor ready and on call?  Are there good hospitals nearby?  Is there a pharmacy nearby? Are they geared for emergencies?

 

4.  Service.  Are the people senior friendly?  Do they understand the special needs of the senior citizen?  What special facilities do they have?  Do they allow for early check-in and late check-out. Do they provide wheelchairs if required?

5.  Activities/Entertainment.  What are the activities available in and around the resort that are senior friendly.
