Disaster Preparedness Guide for Seniors by Senior Living Experts Search Senior Living publishes comprehensive disaster preparedness guide for seniors
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, it's clear that many citizens are totally unprepared for natural disasters, and that senior citizens are often the most vulnerable group. Search Senior Living has just compiled a simple and comprehensive guide to help senior citizens be prepared for disasters of many different types which seem to be increasingly common lately.
Whether the seniors are self-sufficient and living on their own, or they require regular help from staff or family members, advanced planning can make the difference between an inconvenience and a tragedy. The tips include preparing an emergency kit along with important documents, as well as how to create a Personal Support Network, which can be a life-saver when the time comes.
Government agencies such as FEMA and ready.gov are great resources, but they are light on senior-specific information, making this release a valuable planning guide for families with older members.
SearchSeniorLiving.com is a resource for all aspects of housing and care for seniors, retirees and the elderly. The site offers a comprehensive guide to senior communities. Educational tools for planning ahead, senior living options and senior service providers are available online at www.SearchSeniorLiving.com.
