Valley seniors get prepared

Support Our Seniors hosts a meeting on Emergency Preparedness Jan. 3 from 2-4 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the Florence Filberg Centre.

The SOS (Support Our Seniors) Comox Valley is joining with the Views Family Council to host a meeting on Emergency Preparedness. The meeting is on Tuesday, Jan. 3 from 2-4 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the Florence Filberg Centre.

Mike Fourner of the Comox Valley Emergency Preparedness, will show a video and address issues of concern to seniors and others with physical issues, such as hearing, vision, mobility, medications, next of kin, neighbourhood support groups, etc.

The meeting will be an opportunity to develop questions in preparation for a panel with speakers from Comox Valley facilities. For example, do you wonder what would happen in an assisted living facility if there was an earthquake or a fire? Do you wonder what you could do to prepare a relative for emergencies? What do we all need to know about the emergency plans of Valley facilities in the event of a major disaster? What else do we need to worry about?

In addition to this agenda, 10 or 15 minutes will be devoted to an up-date on the DriveABLE issue.

The public is welcome to attend. For more information, call Jennifer at 250- 334-2321 or Gwyn at 250-338-6265.
