Health Tip of the Day

A Travel Checklist for Seniors

  • Checkup. Get the go-ahead from your doctor. Take extra glasses and dentures.

  • Health information. Carry a typed one-page sheet describing your medical history, current health problems, medications you're taking, allergies to medications, and your doctor's name, address, phone number, fax number and Internet address.

  • Insurance. Be sure you have insurance to cover a medical emergency. If your health plan doesn't provide adequate protection, purchase a traveler's assistance plan.

  • Prescriptions. Take at least enough for the trip's duration. Carry only in prescription bottles and carry them with you (do not pack in checked luggage).

  • Shots. See a doctor at least two months before departure for immunizations.

  • Significant health problems. If you're taking a long excursion such as a cruise, notify the onboard physician of any health problems before you embark.
