Transportation Strategies for the Chronically Ill and Disabled

Hi, my name is Jill. After my father was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, we decided that we didn't want him to spend his last few remaining years sitting around. Instead, we decided to start travelling. We travelled using many different types of transportation, and throughout our sometimes challenging adventures, I learned how to deal with transportation and Parkinson's.

In these posts, I plan to look at everything from choosing transportation to travelling safely. Please, explore my blog and enjoy your travels!
