Hello to all!
My husband has wanted to travel for quite some time. My dad passed in June and after that I realized that we should go while we still can. My mother will be moving to assisted living due to health issues, so she will be taken care of. My husband's mom has dementia, her favorite two things in the world are camping and her baby boy (my husband). So we've decided to sell it all, buy a fifth wheel toy hauler, and go camping. I am in good health and will be care giver for the rest of our party. My husband has had a few back surgeries and is able to walk now (after about 2 years of not being able to) and he can travel short distances at a time. His favorite thing in the world to do is to fish. We have a small pontoon boat that he can handle and makes fishing nice for him. His step-dad is a larger man with mobility issues, but can get around somewhat and has an electric scooter for bad days (he also loves to fish.)
As soon as we can get everything sold (probably a few months) we will hit the road and go camping. We are all very excited about it. We plan to camp at campgrounds on/near lakes so the guys can fish. Mom and I will enjoy relaxing, knitting, reading, cooking, etc. Oh, and we have two dogs (from the humane society), they are currently 7 months old and already about 40 pounds each so they will be large dogs.
We currently live in the upstate of South Carolina. Due to everyone's health issues we probably won't be able to go too far from this area due to having to still go to the occasional doctor appointment.
Has anyone ever traveled with health issues and/or dementia?
Thanks to all!
