As hurricane season continues to heat up and winter weather is fast approaching, now is a good time to make sure that you and the senior family member you care for are prepared for emergencies and disasters.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website offers many informational resources and tools to help caregivers plan, including: a “Disaster Preparedness Guide for Elders,” a “Disaster Preparedness Guide for Seniors, by Seniors,” and a document that outlines “Disaster Planning Tips for Older Adults and Their Families.”
At ASSI, we’re dedicated to helping seniors age safely and securely in their homes. We hope that you’ll take the time to develop an emergency and disaster plan that works for your family and your loved ones.
