GMHA’s Chapter on Working With Older Adults After Disasters

As we continue to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the severe weather earlier this week we thought you might be interested in a chapter we wrote to help guide people working with older adults in disasters.
The chapter, Case Management for Older Persons in Disasters, was included in Geriatric Mental Health Disaster and Emergency Preparedness, which was published in 2010. It was written by myself and GMHA Honorary Chair Michael Friedman.

Below is a list of organizations, agencies, or sites that serve as great resources for longtime and emerging professionals in the field of aging.  This list will continue to be updated.  If you are looking for additional resources or information on a specific topic, please do not hesitate to contact the Aging Field of Practice Faculty and your colleagues in SAAS.  We would be more than happy to help you find what you are looking for!
