Abstract

Holidays abroad are increasingly popular with older people, but, to have a safe trip, they must be prepared for what can go wrong, say Claire Wong and Hilary Simons
Old age should not prevent people from venturing to foreign climes for their holidays, but some of the hazards associated with travel are of more concern for older tourists. Nurses caring for older people in community, acute and residential settings should know where to direct them for pre- and post-travel health advice. Risk assessment and management are important parts of travel health consultations. This article provides a summary of the dangers of overseas travel and the general principles of health advice applicable to the specific needs of the older traveller.
