In the Face of Disaster, a new publication series created by a group of Family and Consumer Sciences professionals, seeks to provide Kentuckians with the resources they need to prepare before disasters strike and the skills to cope in the aftermath of these life changing events.
When disaster strikes, it is a frightening time for everyone, but especially people who might not be ambulatory or don't understand what is happening. In this episode of Talking FACS, Dr. Amy Kostelic shares tips for helping older adults who have challenges with mobility or cognition get to safety. She outlines the importance of ensuring that emergency plans are followed and contacts are made.
