Safe Travels for Savvy Elders: Tips for a Safe Vacation
Retirement is a stage of life that now accounts for 20 percent of the average adult's life span. This explosive extension of the retirement years is a result of a 50 percent increase in life expectancy, from 49 to 74 years since 1900. Today, instead of spending an average of only 1.3 years in retirement, people can look forward to at least 14 years of retirement living, according to Prof. David Demko, of the AgeVenture News Service. He offers these senior travel safety tips for the elderly and active adults who venture out on trips. These pointers include making sure you have enough time and money to see all the sites, taking comfortable clothing, keeping an open and patient mind, using traveler’s checks instead of cash, carrying emergency phone numbers, traveling with a buddy and sticking to their regular diet as much as possible.
