Storm Preparation for Seniors:

Preparing for storms as a senior or their caregiver involves more than just riding out the weather. It's about creating a comprehensive plan that ensures safety and security before, during, and after the storm. Here's an in-depth look at storm preparation for seniors:

Before the Storm:

1. Home Preparation:

  • Outdoor Furniture: Secure or store away outdoor furniture to prevent damage or hazards during strong winds.
  • Survival Kit: Assemble a survival kit with essentials such as non-perishable food, water, medications, flashlights, batteries, and a first aid kit.
  • Escape Route: Identify and establish a clear escape route in case evacuation becomes necessary.

2. Access Resources:

  • Planning Lists: Utilize comprehensive planning lists available from reliable sources like and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to cover all necessary preparations.

3. Stay Informed:

  • Emergency Shelters: Know the locations of nearby emergency shelters or safe places.

During the Storm:

1. Safety Measures:

  • Stay Indoors: Encourage staying indoors and away from windows during the storm to avoid potential hazards.
  • Communication: Keep lines of communication open with family, neighbors, or emergency services if help is needed.

After the Storm:

1. Property Assessment:

  • Inspect Property: Check for any damages to the property, focusing on the roof, siding, windows, and potential leaks or standing water.
  • Cleanup: Remove any debris or downed branches from outdoor walkways to ensure safe mobility.

2. Watch for Scams:

  • Scam Awareness: Be cautious of scammers post-storm. Avoid sharing personal information or providing upfront payments to unfamiliar individuals.

General Tips:

  • Stay Updated: Continuously monitor weather updates and advisories to stay informed.
  • Community Support: Encourage seniors to connect with local community resources or support networks that can offer assistance during and after the storm.
