Finding a travel aide for elderly father on cruise

Jump to last reply

My family is going to be traveling in July on a 5-day NY/New England/Canada cruise with my 87-year-old Dad. We all live in the NY area and will be departing directly from NYC. My dad will have his own wheelchair accessible room. Aside from some mobility issues, he is quite independent. (He has Parkinson's disease.)

We are looking for a travel aide who would be willing to share a room with my father, help him get ready in the morning and evening, etc. The aide would have the entire day free and would not be expected to join us for meals for activities.

Does anyone have experience with hiring someone for this type of situation? I have not been able to find a local agency experienced with this specific kind of situation. If you have, I welcome your advice and experience.
