Medical Needs and Advance Directives Policies
We understand that many of our dear friends are contending with "thorns of the flesh" and physical ailments. Therefore it is important that you think ahead of medical concerns that may arise during the tour. We are unable to provide personal wheelchair services.
Medications and Supplies
If you require prescription medication, please be sure to bring adequate supply with you, since none will be available while on the tour. Be sure to make a list of all your medications. Pack medication in a carry-on or bag that is easily accessible. Take a list of the generic drug names. If you run out of a prescribed medication, you may be able to get an emergency refill, but the brand names may be different or unavailable in Canada. Physicians or pharmacists will more likely know the generic name. For your convenience, we have a Medical Checklist to help you get your medication list together. You will need PDF file reader to read the file below.
If you have Diabetes:
If you have issues with your blood sugar, we recommend you keep snacks with you. The timing of our meals varies slightly from day to day, therefor please avoid situations that would compromise your health in these situations. Pack snacks if necessary.
Diabetic syringes and needles must be disposed of properly as hazardous waste and not in trash receptacles on tour bus or hotel.
"Unexpected events" can overtake us all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11) Please be sure to have on your person, your Advance Medical Directive. This is a legal document in which it specifies what actions should be taken for your health if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourselves because of illness or incapacity during the trip.
