Travel of Bed Bound Parent on Tourist Visa: Flight and Insurance guidance

Priya Chittoor

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

This is Priya. My mother had a major brain stroke last year and she is completely paralyzed on her left side and needs to be fed through NG/Riles tube. 

 I need help bringing my mother to me here in the United States, so she will be with my children for few months and I can show her to doctors/physiotherapists here. I’m sure she will heal and respond better when she sees her grandchildren. My parents both have their B1/B2 visas to travel.

Wonder how will I accommodate to bring her on a long flight journey and any options available? and please suggest on good health insurance that can be used while they are here.

Any guidance, help much appreciated.

Thank You,
