Seniors who are evacuating or sheltering in place should prepare three days’ worth of their vital supplies.
Beyond the bare necessities, it is also crucial for seniors, especially those with impaired cognition, to maintain a sense of normalcy during a hurricane. Creature comforts like favorite breakfast foods, television programs, books, and other everyday items can help alleviate the anxieties that accompany hurricanes. Moreover, securing the same caretaker and maintaining a routine do wonders for keeping evacuating seniors calm and comfortable.
Whether sheltering or evacuating, maintaining a homelike environment will ease a senior’s hurricane experience. You might just save a life.
