The elderly are especially vulnerable to changes of any kind, but the changes with this new post hurricane situation have many elderly in a tail spin.  Many people just do not understand why they have no phone service or electricity.  Gas and groceries has also been a challenge for the elderly.  Many elderly can't wait in line for 2 hours for gas and many grocery stores aren't stocking the offbeat items the elderly need.

Try to make your elder feel safer and more secure in the post hurricane times by:

  • Listening to their complaints. I know you have to explain over and over again what is going on, but remember they are really confused at this time, don't make it harder on them by fussing at them because you are frustrated too.
  • Keep your elder hydrated. This is especially important if you don't have air conditioning or power.
  • Keep the same schedule if you can. Elders like order and consistency. Try to keep things as "normal" as possible.
  • Get your elder involved in the "clean up." Now, I don't mean to work them to death, but give them something to do that they can do without too much physical exertion and make them feel useful.
  • Keep them clean. Without air conditioning you elder will be more vulnerable to developing skin conditions such as rashes. A quick fix that helps with keeping the skin dry to apply a thin coat of baby powder. The talc will help absorb the excess moisture.

I hope all of you will get power back on soon and keep your elder healthy!
