Natural Disaster Awareness for
Senior Caregivers

This 4-hour course is designed to enhance the caregiver’s awareness of vulnerability factors associated with senior citizens.

Senior citizens are particularly vulnerable to natural hazards. Factors such as physical imitations, mental ailments, and medication requirements are issues of concern for caregivers of senior
