Travel Buddy Program
At Family Private Care, we extend the same quality services that are provided in the home to clients on the road. From companionship to professional nursing care, we've got you covered every step of the way. Take a look at a few examples of how a Family Private Care Travel Buddy can help:
- Logistics & Planning - Caregivers will provide transportation to and from the airport or cruise port, coordinate check-in, baggage and security, assist with carry-on luggage, boarding, bathroom trips, baggage claim, etc.
- Companion Care - A caregiver will accompany the client to meals, or if the client prefers, a caregiver will bring the client to the table and dine separately. Caregivers will also take the client on excursions, to shows, games and other social events.
- Personal Care - A certified caregiver, home health aide, nursing assistant or professional nurse will provide the client with the same personal care as he or she would at home, providing assistance with bathing, grooming, dressing, etc.
- Nursing Care - Depending on the level of care required, an RN or LPN is available to ensure the client takes all medications timely and properly, eats nutritious meals, and stays well-hydrated, healthy and safe for the duration of the trip.
In exchange for these services, clients are responsible for compensating the caregiver for his or her time, plane/cruise ticket, and any other expenses directly incurred during the trip. Family Private Care's Travel Buddy Program provides flexibility for clients and families to make the experience affordable and enjoyable for both parties.
Wherever your travel plans lead you, Family Private Care is there to assist every step of the way. We're experts at recruiting and screening companions, caregivers and nurses to match you or a loved one with the perfect travel buddy.

"When my wife became ill, I contacted Family Private Care. They were wonderful. My wife was cared for by professional CNAs until her passing. Afterward, I wanted and needed to get away. As we had always loved cruising, I called my FPC Community Director to see if she had any ideas, as now I was also in need of care and could not go on a trip alone. She told me about the "Travel Buddy" program where a professional caregiver could accompany me on my cruise. I went on my cruise and had a wonderful time. My caregiver was there to take care of my personal care and medication reminders. I reconnected with friends and made new friends. I felt independent, happy and alive again. My family back home knew I was safe and well cared for. I'm planning another cruise in January and I made my arrangements with Family Private Care the same time I booked the cruise. Thanks for giving me my life back!"
