For one of my Mom’s birthdays, we both flew to Vancouver (coast-to-coast) to celebrate with family and friends. WestJet, for example, has a One Person One Fare Program. We applied and were successful so I was my Mom’s personal attendant to provide care (i.e  help with meals, medication) and my fare was covered aside from a small fee on all future trips. 

The trip had moments that were quite confusing especially when we stayed in a new place and met new people. However, for the most part by maintaining our regular daily routine and being by my Mom’s side… all went really smoothly. Before going (due to the time change), we attempted to shift our sleeping habits so that the adjustment would be easier to manage. Marking off the days on a calendar was also a great count down and way to visually capture the current day. ?✈?
