I am thinking of taking my mother away to Punta Cana for her 90 Birthday in April. My family will not be coming-just quality mother-daughter time. The challenges are my mother has early stage Alzheimer's, walks with a cane and tires easily. She enjoys swimming in the ocean provided the access is flat and easy with no sharp drop off and that there are no waves to knock her down. She also enjoys the pool-if she can hang onto a ramp to access the pool. She also enjoys sitting on a lawn chair in the shade-on the grass, not the beach. We would like some gentle entertainment and/or nice music in the evening. We are looking for a more quiet and refined setting with no loud music or screaming kids or misbehaving adults around the pool. As my mother tires easily she is unable to walk too far-especially in the heat. Either a smaller hotel or one that has frequent shuttle service to the beach and to the restaurant would be useful. We do not require alcohol, casinos and other fancy services that we will not require. Food does not need to be fancy, but it has to be appetizing, with some variety and be a place where no one gets sick from the food. I would love to hear from someone who has actually travelled with an elderly person with similar challenges and whether it was worth it. I feel that a cruise would be too overwhelming . An all- inclusive with a short direct flight from Montreal is all that I could handle. Thanks in advance for any advice.
