Homecare Patients and Their Families

As a home care patient – or a family member caring for a loved one at home –
planning is important because you have to make sure you and your family members
have the supplies you need to stay healthy and safe in times of emergency.
You must have the supplies, tools and plans in place to make it on your own,
at least for a period of time, no matter where you are when disaster strikes.

Homecare Patients with Disabilities

As a person with a disability, planning is critically important because during an
emergency you may not have access to the supplies and resources you need to stay
healthy, safe, and independent. Emergency planning includes having the food,
medicine, and medical supplies in place to make it on your own when disaster
strikes. Talk to your health care provider about the specific supplies you will need
to have on hand that will last for two weeks.
