Senior Medication Management

This is a bi-county guide for senior medication management. Given the prevalence of substance abuse across all ages, it is important to understand medications and preventions for substance abuse. We recommend you to use this tool alongside with the medication form in the Emergency Kit checklist below.

Preparing for Emergency Kits & Checklist

It is highly recommended that seniors prepare a "To-go" and "Stay-at-home" emergency kits in response to emergency situations or unexpected disasters. In addition, it is important to place an emergency checklist in each of the kits. Please see below for a "To-go" kit guide, a "Stay-at-home" kit guide, and Senior Emergency Kit checklist.
