16 Jan How To Put Together An Emergency Plan For A Senior
Make sure your loved one is properly prepared for an emergency. The American Red Cross has published “Disaster Preparedness For Seniors by Seniors“.
The Importance of a Personal Support Network
The American Red Cross recommends that senior citizens create a personal support network made up of several individuals who will check in on you in an emergency, to ensure your wellness and to give assistance if needed. This network can consist of friends, roommates, family members, relatives, personal attendants, co-workers and neighbors. Ideally, a minimum of three people can be identified at each location where you regularly spend time, for example at work, home, school or volunteer site.
