Ready Seniors August 2021

Duration: 3 hour(s)
Please join the Region II National Preparedness Division for a Ready Senior workshop.
Increasingly, frail older adults with complex health issues live alone in the community, far from their relatives and caregivers. An older adult may depend upon community service providers for basic necessities and psychosocial support prior to a disastrous event. However, the need for these critical services increases when services are disrupted, or the senior is impacted during a major disaster. FEMA Region II and the Administration for Community Living have partnered to address this disparity through a workshop aimed at preparing AAAs and other organizations that provide critical support services to senior citizens in their communities. Who should attend? Emergency planners for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior community centers, senior housing, adult day care centers, home meal delivery services, charitable organizations, and other who provide services to senior citizens.
FEMA works to ensure equitable access for all to any services and programs that are provided by the agency. If you need a reasonable accommodation, please make your request in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Last minute requests will be accepted, but may not be possible to fulfill.
