Dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

Posted on 09/18/17 by Juanita Jiménez-Soto, AARP Texas

Many people along the Texas Gulf Coast continue to recover from Hurricane Harvey and the destruction it left behind. While the storm may have physically rolled through our area a few weeks ago, the effects will be with us for many weeks to come. Some folks are still cleaning out their homes, adjusting to sending their children to new schools, or dealing with emotional trauma.

Others individuals are now finding themselves in a position of caregiver to a family member or friend displaced by flooding. In this latest episode of Prepare to Care, host Marie-Pierre talks to Isabel Longoria. She’s an AARP associate state director of outreach and advocacy and has some tips for emergency caregivers.
