Podcast: Disaster Preparedness and Dementia

0
Claire E. Day, Chief Program Officer, Alzheimer's Association Northern California and Northern Nevada Chapter, joined me on Tuesday to share information to help you prepare for a disaster when you care for a family member with dementia. You can listen to our show via the player, below.

During our podcast, I mentioned a book we read when we had a Caregiving Book Club but couldn't remember the title. The highly-recommend book is The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes—And Why by Amanda Ripley. The book describes our personalities in a disaster. Understanding our disaster personality (will we freeze? take action? be a hero?) helps us prepare now before a disaster strikes. The book is best when sharing tips that will help us get out.

What tips would you add to our discussion about preparing for a disaster? Please share in our comments section, below.
