When Your Loved One Has Dementia, an Air Medical Escort Can Help

medical-travel-alzheimersThis Saturday, September 21, 2013, MedFlight911 air ambulance will be marking World Alzheimer's Day. Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia in America, and more than 35 million people across the globe suffer from the disease. Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia are devastating diseases, both for the afflicted individual and his or her family – something we see firsthand as a provider of long distance medical transport.

Fortunately, there are many resources out there that can help you if your family is struggling with Alzheimer's. (MedFlight911 air ambulance recommends checking out the Alzheimer's Association if you are looking for assistance.) Alzheimer's is a complicated illness to manage, and hard to go it alone. You'll need to rely on the support of an entire medical team to get you through it. And if your loved one with Alzheimer's needs to travel, an air medical escort may end up being part of that team. An experienced air medical escort can make sure that a person with Alzheimer's or dementia travels safely, reducing stress for you and your family.

Depending on how advanced the disease is, symptoms Alzheimer's can include memory loss, confusion (especially about time and place), poor judgment and changes in mood. Wandering is also a common problem in people with Alzheimer's disease. All of these can make air travel particularly difficult. An air medical escort can help a person with dementia who needs to travel by assisting them through the airport and on the plane. Not only will they accompany the patient at all times so that they don't get lost, they can also help to minimize or reduce anxiety or stress in a dementia patient. By traveling with a commercial medical escort (such as one who works with our air ambulance company), families can rest easy knowing that their loved one will be well looked after during their journey.

Specific things that an air medical escort from MedFlight911 air ambulance can assist with include:

Moving through security screening and communicating with security personnel Getting around the airport, remaining with the patient at all times to reduce the risk of wandering Boarding the plane and getting settled Administering medications Hygiene care Assistance with other medical needs

Caring for a family member with Alzheimer's disease can be extremely difficult. One way to reduce the stress is to get assistance where you can. Air medical escort services are one way to do that. Contact us today to learn more about our medical escort or international air ambulance services. We are here to help.
