It’s that time of year again when Houstonians prepare for hurricane season.  One area of hurricane preparedness that many people forget about is how to care for the elderly in the hurricane season.


Elderly are very uncertain of changes and last year during Ike many elderly were very confused during the power outages and the lack of services that were not available.


One way to help you with caring for your elder during a storm is to be prepared.


Here are some helpful hints for you to consider:

  • Stock up on incontinent supplies such as adult diapers, baby wipes (you can use these for yourself too), gloves, and other personal care supplies.
  • Have a month’s supply of your elder’s medications on hand.
  • Be sure to have a lantern type light and batteries.  These lights provide more room lighting like they are used to having and they don’t have to carry them in their hands which may interfere with canes and walkers.
  • Buy some Ensure or other type of dietary supplement.  These are great because they are non-perishable and provide a lot of vitamins which they may need due to the extra stress of the situation.
  • Register your elder with the Houston-Harris County 211 Special Needs Transportation Registry.  Dial 211 on your phone to register your elder.  This service is designed so the Officials know about the special needs of your elder and can provide assistance if needed. 
  • Locate businesses your elder may need during an emergency (such as dialysis treatment centers, oxygen supply companies, etc) and find out their emergency plan if they have no power to serve your elder.  You want to have a back up plan.
  • Remember that power scooters and wheelchairs need power to operate so you may want to get a back up regular wheelchair for your elder.
  • Don’t forget some form of entrainment such as cards or board games.  These are a great way to occupy your elder so they forget about the storm for a while.


Of course the items listed above are in addition to your regular hurricane supplies such as food, water, batteries, flashlights, battery operated radio or TV, cash, first aid kit, and other essential items that your family may need during a storm.
