Psychosocial Issues for Older Adults in Disasters

This publication is intended to provide disaster mental health and human service workers, service providers, program planners, administrators, as well as care givers, and older persons themselves with the tools and knowledge to appropriately respond to the needs of older adults in times of disaster. We also hope that this guide will provide a better understanding of the strengths and contributions of the older population and how best to use their experience and wisdom in disaster mental health response and recovery efforts.
