For Seniors: Staying in Touch

Keep in touch with your family and neighbors by:
  • Establishing relationships with nearby neighbors before an emergency or disaster happens
  • Sharing your emergency contact and medical information with family, neighbors, apartment building manager, or condo association
  • Creating a contact list of your neighbor's information
  • Arranging for someone to check on you
  • Teaching those who may need to assist you how to operate necessary equipment
  • Planning ahead with your home health care services agency
  • Notifying local police, fire, and rescue responders of special needs or mobility issues
