One thing that seniors always have to worry about, whether they have family present or not is weather conditions. It is typically difficult enough for seniors to get around without having to worry about rain, snow, sleet or ice – especially ice! Not only does this keep them house-bound, but it also keeps others from visiting them.

I know all about this. We were lucky to make it home after celebrating Christmas this weekend. Lansing, Michigan, and all of the surrounding area was hit with a terrible ice storm that didn’t only make it treacherous traveling conditions but has wiped out their electricity. I can’t imagine what that would be like for someone that does not walk well or have anyone to help them out in case of such emergency. Not only would they be cold, but they would not be able to fix food or get out if they needed to.

The hope is that someone will check in on seniors if such a storm hits. But what happens if a storm of such likelihood should occur and everyone else is affected by it the same way? Will they even be able to consider checking on someone else or will they be too entrenched in their own lives to think about others?

Well, this is another reason why I created my business Time to Care….With Age Come Respect. I will be that person and ensure that they are safe and sound like they deserve to be!
