Severe Weather Preparedness Checklist for Seniors and Elderly by Peter Mangiola
What To Have
Seniors should keep specialized items ready, including extra wheelchair batteries, oxygen, catheters, medication, food for service animals and any other items you might need. Keep a list of the type and model numbers of the medical devices you require. Be sure to make provisions for medications that require refrigeration. Make arrangements for any assistance to get to a shelter.
If you are required to undergo routine treatments administered by a clinic or hospital or if you receive regular services including home health care, or treatment, contact your service provider about emergency protocols.
This is especially important if you use medical equipment in your home that requires electricity to operate.
