IntroductionAs Americans head into their later years of age, many are faced with needing assistance with daily living activities. Long-term care services can assist in personal care needs such as bathing, dressing, and or meal preparation. As people age, they find it difficult to keep up with housework, shopping for groceries and or taking medication. Long-term insurance is an option to help people continue to live a normal life while assisting in needed daily activities. Long-term care facilities offer care to patients in their home, assisted living, and nursing home facility (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, n.d.). In an effort to offer support to our elderly community, we will focus on a community plan for emergency preparedness to support the needs of patients in a long-term care facility.
Learning From the Past-Hurricane Katrina About 1,750 patients were stuck in 11 different hospitals around the city of New Orleans.140 hospital patients and nursing home residents died.Before Katrina, the rule was to keep patients in place. Many died due to dehydration caused by limited access to water and no air condition.A major barrier was trying to determine who was in charge- state, local, or federal officials.
