Emergency Preparedness: When Is It Enough?

posted 02.02.2018

By Lori Smetanka and Beverley Laubert

Recent natural disasters exposed long-term-care facilities’ and com­­munity care systems’ levels of pre­­paredness to handle emergencies and protect their residents and patients. Hurri­canes and wildfires have tested communities’ emergency readiness and ability to respond. The failure of these providers to be prepared, or to effectively implement procedures that would protect their frail, vulnerable populations, has resulted in serious health consequences, even death.

We know that a substantial number of older adults live at home alone. Presenters representing national and community-based organizations will address important issues, such as:

-Where can older adults, who are living alone, find the social support systems they need and how should they prepare for the journey?
-What are the risks associated with aging alone?
-What are their housing options?
-What are the lessons learned?
-What are the ways to avoid or help avoid isolation and loneliness as an older adult ages alone?

Outcomes of the Roundtable

-Participants will have a much greater awareness of the scope of the issue of Solo Aging.
-Learn about models for creating community services for seniors who have no family support.
-Learn how Solo Agers can protect themselves financially and legally in their later years.

Are You Ready for Solo Agers and Elder Orphans?

posted 12.27.2017

By Sara Zeff Geber

What will be different about the baby boom generation when they start to need aid and assistance in their daily activities? On the surface…not much. They are living longer and healthier, but will eventually encounter many of the same challenges previous generations have experienced: cancer, heart problems, falls, diabetes, etc. Many of these conditions can be treated at home or in a residential facility, with supplemental aid provided by a family member.
