NJ Senior Safety

Are you prepared to deal with any emergencies that may arise with your elderly loved one?

Below is a list that you, as a caregiver, should keep in an easy-to-reach place should an emergency occur.  The list should be filled out and kept on a refrigerator and/or nightstand.  In times of panic and confusion, you or your senior may forget the most basic information.  Timing is critical and seconds can make a difference.

Fill out this list, review it with your senior citizen and keep multiple copies:
