How to Help Older Adults Before and After a Storm


Michigan summers and winter weather can pose many challenges to older adults; major disasters are even more challenging. Winter brings power failures and ice storms while summer brings heat waves and power outages and more. So how can you help your older relative or neighbor during and after a disaster?

I just read an informative blog on the Public Health Emergency website. The blog was written by Cheryl A. Levine, Ph.D., Senior Policy Analyst & Team Lead for At-Risk Individuals, ASPR’s Division for At-Risk Individuals, Behavioral Health & Community Resilience.

The blog is a very easy to read and gives great tips for during and after disasters. It’s worth your time.
