The Importance of a Personal Support Network

PAMPHLET: Disaster Preparedness For Seniors By Seniors

The American Red Cross recommends that senior citizens create a personal support network made up of several individuals who will check in on you in an emergency, to ensure your wellness and to give assistance if needed. This network can consist of friends, roommates, family members, relatives, personal attendants, co-workers and neighbors. Ideally, a minimum of three people can be identified at each location where you regularly spend time, for example at work, home, school or volunteer site.

There are seven important items to discuss and implement with a personal support network:

1
Make arrangements, prior to an emergency, for your support network to immediately check on you after a disaster and, if needed, offer assistance.

2
Exchange important keys.

3
Show them where you keep emergency supplies.

4
Share copies of your relevant emergency documents, evacuation plans and emergency health information card.

5
Agree on and practice methods for contacting each other in an emergency. Do not count on the telephones working.

6
You and your personal support network should always notify each other when you are going out of town and when you will return.

7
The relationship should be mutual. You have a lot to contribute! Learn about each other's needs and how to help each other in an emergency. You might take responsibility for food supplies and preparation, organizing neighborhood watch meetings and interpreting, among other things.

So many of us are either thinking or already are using Facebook to connect with our family and friends. Here are a couple of videos to help you better use this social media.

What is Facebook

Facebook is a social networking website that makes it easy for you to connect and share with your family and friends online. Originally designed for college students, Facebook was created in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg while he was enrolled at Harvard University. By 2006, anyone over the age of 13 with a valid email address could join Facebook. Today, Facebook is the world's largest social network, with more than 1 billion users worldwide.
