Along with creating a network of neighbors, relatives, friends and co-workers to aid you in an emergency, Seniors should keep specialized items ready for an emergency. These items include extra wheelchair batteries, oxygen, catheters, medication, food for service animals, etc.
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.
