This tool has been developed by Volunteering Queensland and key partners as a part of the ‘Disaster Preparedness for Older People’ project. It assists agencies that are providing services to older people in their own homes, to support their clients in developing a basic evacuation and/or disaster preparedness plan. If clients are receiving a home care package their providers should be working with them in relation to preparedness for an emergency event, and consider an individualised plan which would include information on such things, such as pets. It is hoped that following the development of their clients’ basic disaster preparedness plan, then agencies will also seek local support for their clients to further mature this basic approach. It is recommended that community services consider engaging with additional people and organisations, such as their client’s family, friends and local Red Cross to complete a more comprehensive plan with these clients.
