Natural disasters are inevitable, and the damage they cause can be unpredictable. Seniors are the most vulnerable to the aftermath due to potential issues with health, mobility, awareness, and access to resources. This problem is especially evident during hurricane season in Florida as seniors make up about 20% of the state’s population.
Helping our senior family members, friends, and neighbors is critical during times of crisis. Fortunately for Floridians, many community resources are also available to support seniors after a storm. Below is a list of disaster relief efforts seniors can utilize after a hurricane or other natural disaster.
Seniors should not have to face emergencies alone. Florida Senior Consulting is here to care for your senior loved ones and ensure their wellbeing after a disaster.
