Senior Care Crisis?

As a senior care professional you've been there before, maybe a hundred times. Sitting across from you: that older adult who's taking so many medications she can't remember them all. Perhaps she can't recall all the names of her various doctors. Maybe he doesn't know whether he has a living will or where it is. You call that senior's primary contact – the adult son or daughter. Chances are, they don't have a clue.

Planning Can Better Prepare Families

Family caregivers often live in fear of an emergency call that an older loved one needs assistance. The Senior Emergency KitSM can help caregivers be prepared. Visit www.SeniorEmergencyKit.com for resources that include checklists and worksheets for medications, conditions, allergies, doctors, health advisors and important documents.

Senior Emergency Kit Worksheets and Checklists

The Senior Emergency Kit features several worksheets that family caregivers can complete with the help of a senior loved one. This toolkit can be kept in an easy-to-reach location, such as a nightstand, to allow easy access to information.
