Hurricane Preparedness for Caregivers

By Angela Medieros, Staff Writer

(Page 3 of 3)

Websites and printed information on quantities of food and water are excellent guidelines.  You can overstock if you choose, but keep the recommended amounts on hand until the season is fully over.  To prevent expiration, rotate your supplies within hurricane season.

Don’t wait until the last minute to check and buy batteries or any other items.  If you need to make a last minute trip to the store, focus on items that will keep.  Buying perishable foods when a storm is imminent will waste money and food reserves if the power goes out.  Although you may buy a gallon of ice cream for the “lights out party,” make sure you have non-perishable fun foods when the fridge should be kept closed.

Thinking ahead will offer you a sense of comfort and give your loved one a feeling of security.
