Man-made and natural disasters can have long-lasting and sometimes permanent effects on our communities and older adults who live in them. Potential limitations in mobility, access to transportation or other factors can exacerbate the challenges older adults face during emergencies.

Fortunately, there are steps older adults, including consumers of long-term care services and supports, caregivers, community-based organizations, and long-term care facilities can take to prepare for, go through, and recover from disasters.

NCEA is pleased to share three NEW #LGBTElderJustice Fact Sheets created in collaboration with SAGE!

🔎 bit.ly/NCEAxSAGE

Whether they protested in the streets, founded organizations, or just managed to survive times of social unrest, LGBT older people laid the groundwork for the progress all LGBT people now enjoy. We hope these resources will build on their hard work and promote justice and inclusion for all.

Please read and share widely with your networks!

Disasters can happen at any time, and unfortunately, scams and fraud are quick to follow. The National Center for Disaster Fraud (NCDF), situated at Louisiana State University LSU is on the front line of a national effort to prevent disaster fraud. The NCDF serves as a centralized clearinghouse for disaster fraud complaints and information relating to both natural and man-made disasters.

It is up to all of us to prevent and report disaster fraud
