Senior Safety: Hurricane Preparation Package
Hurricane Season Safety for Seniors: Aging Wisely's Preparation Package
Aging Wisely offers a special service for seniors and individuals with special needs to help them prepare for hurricane season.
Our care managers have developed a hurricane planning procedure over the years of assisting senior clients, and various professional organizations and colleagues have sought their expertise. This year, we are offering a stand-alone service for individuals and families who wish to have assistance in putting together their plans. You can see what is included in the Hurricane Planning Package flier.
Natural disasters tend to have bigger impacts on vulnerable individuals, such as those with chronic medical conditions, disabilities or who rely on outside support for daily assistance. Individuals who are homebound or with limited mobility may also be the least likely to prepare and evacuate due to the challenges involved. It is vital to recognize the serious impacts natural disasters can have.
