Portland, OR, January 27, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- CareVacations, the most trusted special needs equipment and services provider in the industry, celebrates 20 years of offering travelers with special needs, worry-free travel on all major cruise lines.
CareVacations is the result of Don and Susan Stilwell’s passion for travel and their philosophy that travel should be equally accessible for people with disabilities. Susan Stilwell, a driven travel agent and recipient of the coveted “Travel Agent of the Year” award in 1987, developed a reputation for pushing the boundaries of travel for those who had special medical needs and challenges. Coupled with Don’s previous years of experience in the hospitality industry, medical emergency rooms, and physical rehabilitation, CareVacations became a reality for the Stilwells in 1988.
Within a few years the Stilwell’s drive and determination gave CareVacations a reputation for exemplary travel and medical equipment rental services. Soon after, cruise lines sought the expertise and services of CareVacations in an effort to better serve the special medical needs of their guests. As a result, CareVacations established exclusive partnerships with most major cruise lines for passenger rental and delivery services and continues to excel in meeting the needs of passengers and cruise lines. “I have always been a firm believer in living life to the fullest, regardless of what might be considered as setbacks,” says Don Stilwell, Owner and President of CareVacations. “If I can help one person with special medical needs take a trip they have always dreamed about, by taking a little more care and providing a little bit of help, then it’s all worth it.”
CareVacations is the preferred vendor chosen by most cruise lines for equipment maintenance, on board mobility devices, scooters for all sizes, hospital beds, patient lifts, and other highly specialized and sensitive medical equipment.
Since 1988, CareVacations has flourished and rapidly expanded into an international company with agent offices and warehouses in cruise ports worldwide and have helped thousands of cruise passengers enjoy a care free vacation. “Our highly trained Care Team staff gives each special needs traveler a sense of security… they are like guardians making the guests’ vacations comfortable and worry-free,” says Susan Stilwell, Owner and Vice President of CareVacations. “Don and I are passionate about helping cruise passengers enjoy themselves on their vacations, regardless of disability.”
