Prepare seniors

• Have a trusted support network of 2-3 helpers to check in and assist in an emergency
• Helpers should know the response plan, have spare keys and know the location of the emergency kit 
• Caregiving needs should be clearly outlined on paper and shared with the support network 
• Emergency kits for seniors should have extra medication (2-week supply), dosages, prescription information, medical and mobility devices and equipment (walkers, canes, eye glasses, hearing aids and batteries, spare footwear and orthotics etc.)
• All special needs and medication should be clearly written and accessible to helpers should communication be hindered in any way 
• Always have a whistle or personal alarm close to seek help
• Mobility devices and equipment should be by the door where possible should a rapid exit be required
