Seniors can sometimes be forced to fend for themselves during disasters. However, they could be safer if they had better forms of communication and access to more resources, according to a new report from the New York Academy of Medicine.
The July report, “Resilient Communities: Empowering Older Adults in Disaster and Daily Life,” was based on focus groups held with New York City seniors who had lived through 2012’s Hurricane Sandy. Almost three-quarters of the participants lived in the area most affected by the hurricane.
