Emergency Plan for the Older Adult

Emergency Plan for the Older Adult

Locate the American Red Cross in your area: http://www.redcross.org/ or in person.

Identify what is necessary for emergency supplies to have on hand for a healthy older adult. Consider visiting with an older family member or friend to identify specific needs for this older adult (reasonable for this person)

Assist the older adult (OA) in creating their Personal Emergency Plan and contacts

Describe what the OA was surprised to need or what they seemed to predict on their own

Why is this important for OA singles or couples who live independently without services?
