In July we are going to be taking my mother in law to a wedding on the Jersey Shore.
My mother in law needs some assistance physically; she walks with a cane. it would have been helpful for her to have grab bars (for shower, toileting, etc.)
Our first adventure came in booking a motel room. there was a block of rooms for the wedding. However, when we attempted to book a room, we were told that a "wheelchair" room would not be available at the block rate. We would have to pay a higher rate. Nor could they guarantee that we would get a first floor room. I am assuming this place had elevators but again....I have a feeling I had better get up to speed quickly on this type of thing. We didn't need a wheelchair room per se, but I thought it would have features that would have made her stay easier.
Looks like I am going to have to learn a lot about this topic-quickly. I've already contacted someone who used to be in the travel field to see if she can give me some direction.
