We create barrier-free holidays for people with physical disabilities or reduced mobility and their families. Accessible Madrid is an Accredited Tourism Business and a member ENAT (European Network for Accessible Tourism).

We are dedicated to providing our clients with a hassle-free and enjoyable travel experience when they travel to Spain. As part of our broad range of services for disabled travellers visiting Madrid, we offer Personal Assistance Services (PAS).

Personal Assistance Services provide people with the opportunity to exercise control and choice in their lives. Hiring a Personal Assistant from Accessible Madrid, can help you save on travel expenses and may allow you to replace an assistant more easily if needed.

A personal assistant is a person assisting a person with a disability with tasks that the individual would do for himself or herself if it were not for a disability. Independent living is not doing things by yourself; it is being in control of how things are done. When travelling abroad, Personal Assistance Services (PAS) provide a way for some people with disabilities to do the things he/she would do for herself if he did not have a disability or had other ways to accomplish the task without human assistance.

This could involve:

  • Domestic tasks, such as housecleaning, cooking, laundry, and shopping, reading, or notetaking.
  • Personal care, such as transferring, preparing and taking medications, skin care, positioning, bathing, range of motion exercises, dressing, grooming, and toilet assistance.
  • Transportation, such as pushing a wheelchair, guiding someone, assisting with transitions and transfers, driving, etc.

Before you hire a PAS abroad, is always good to begin planning ahead weeks in advance before you plan to travel. It is very helpful for us to identify the areas where our clients will require PAS and how much assistance in each of those areas they will need.

Our staff are experienced in assisting customers with wheelchairs so you can be sure of a warm welcome when you travel with us. If you are a disabled traveller, holidays can be stressful. Hire our Personal Assistance Services , when you travel to Madrid and enjoy your vacation without worries.
