Travelling with my elderly Mum to Jordan, Israel and PA

I will be travelling with my elderly Mum who can't walk fast and has many ailments such as diabetes, wears a cochlear implant and suffers from sleep apnea. It will be my first time travelling with my Mum to a far off destination, and I am a little scared that I will not be able to cope or cater for her specific needs. Or even worse.... lose patience!
Can anyone shed any light on a similar situation where they traveled to the middle east with their parent/parents and how you managed? Also what type of itinerary did you book etc? Any advice would be really appreciated.

I suggest that you post your question on the "Tripadvisor forum:
Similar questions have been posted there many times in the past and the "experts" can give you a lot of good advice.

Hi there

Hope Im not too late with this answer... It's not as scary as it sounds!

Traveling in Israel is very easy with these kinds of medical conditions, and there are very strong awareness of how to handle travelers with these needs in hotels and so on.

Traveling in Jordan is also pretty simple, but from experience, I suggest you try to travel with a specialised operator such as www.petrafromisrael.com who are able to arrange accommodations and restaurants who can make special arrangements for your mother.
