Vacation/Travel Support

Vacation/Travel Support


~trip prices vary~
~standard staff travel companion rate $90/day~


The Independence Project will work with you and your family member to offer support if traveling is a desired goal. There will be an application process which includes a Supported Travel Assessment, which will include areas of self care, mobility, self control and following directions.

We have taken individuals on trips in the United States as well as abroad. One cannot even begin to measure the learning that takes place when traveling. Beyond the content and type of trip, we learn flexibility, patience, paying attention, being mindful, and being a team player. Traveling gives us the incredible gift of wonder. We will prepare a custom itinerary or individuals can apply to join an upcoming adventure.
