elder care stakeholder roles & responsibilities in providing healthcare for elders during disasters Describe stakeholder dependencies & interdependencies Provide planning resources and tools to community stakeholders Support the integration of elder healthcare and support stakeholders into local emergency management communities Provide a tool for developing a local continuum of elder care (examples, directions)
Project Purpose & Overview Healthcare Systems Needs Analysis for Elders During Disasters A project funded by the Fla. Dept. of Health 6 Project Origin and Purpose Our History and Experience Project Rationale & Need for the Project Vision During disasters, the complex health and medical needs of Floridas elder population will be met. Mission To develop and implement a comprehensive methodology for identifying and
codifying disaster roles and responsibilities for the many stakeholders comprising the continuum of healthcare for Floridas elder population during disasters. 7 Three Year Project Identification of Elder Care Stakeholders Established a Core Planning Team Conducted regional stakeholder workshops Analyzed stakeholder roles & responsibilities Developed Continuum of Healthcare for Elders During Disasters & Planning Considerations (and tested the model) Preparing Communities to Care for Elders During Disasters the Community-Based Process
8 Elder Care Continuum Stakeholders County Emergency Management (EM) & Health Department (ESF8) Area Agency on Aging (AAA) 2-1-1 agencies (information and referral network) Alzheimers caregiver support organizations Behavioral Health Providers COAD / VOAD (when active in a community), including Red Cross Councils on Aging / Senior Centers / Other aging network provider organizations Emergency Response Agencies (e.g., EMS, fire, law enforcement) Energy providers Home health agencies & geriatric care managers Hospitals & other healthcare providers (e.g., clinics, medical equipment, VA) HUD housing (for seniors) Nursing homes, assisted living facilities & continuing care retirement communities Pharmacies Renal dialysis centers Selected Govt. partners (Dept. of Elder Affairs; Co. Health Dept.; Agency for Health Care Admin.; Adult Protective Serv./Dept. of Children & Families; Veterans Affairs) Transportation providers
OTHER groups important in the healthcare continuum for elders in the local community 9 The Community-Based Planning Process & Continuum Framework 10 The Community-Based Planning Process Identifies, engages and integrates all key stakeholders involved in elder care during disasters Results in specific solutions to improve the communitys capability to care for elders during disasters
11 Why is this approach needed? Emergency planners often lack awareness of the vulnerability and complex care requirements of many elders The scope of healthcare stakeholders for elders is broad and complex with many dependent and interdependent roles and responsibilities to coordinate and integrate Communities (& stakeholders) have varied levels of preparedness, planning & response capabilities/capacities Elder care stakeholders may not be actively
integrated into the communitys emergency management planning 12 Planning for the care of elders during disasters begins with an understanding of the communitys Healthcare and Support Continuum for Elders 13 Continuum of Care - Assumptions Individuals are unique - common care & support services. Condition and needs will change over the term of the disaster (decompensation).
In a disaster environment, healthcare, services and support will be limited, temporarily unavailable, or absent. Expect negative outcomes when the continuum is disrupted or broken. A communitys resiliency depends largely upon its augmentation and/or replacement strategies. 14 Continuum of Healthcare & Support for Elders ~~ A Complex System ~~ Social Networks Hobbies & Interests
Faith Based Support Community Support Services Medical Equip. & Supplies Electricity (e.g., Food Bank) Senior Centers & Activities Transportation Water Family support Home- &

Proportional Shifts in Care & Support Event Duration, Scope, and Severity 18 Elder-Focused Planning Considerations Elders require a comprehensive approach to disaster-based planning considerations: #1 Elder community profile what are the characteristics of your elder population and who are the community stakeholders that serve them? #2 Risk identification and management how vulnerable are your elders? #3 Continuum of healthcare and support systems for elders who are your stakeholders and what are their dependencies, and interdependencies? #4 Community preparedness & response planning for elder populations how integrated and comprehensive are your stakeholders emergency plans 19 (your continuums stakeholders)? Planning Consideration #1 Characterizing the Elder Population
Elder demographics and locations Residential Areas/Mapping Service Providers (stakeholder groups) Elders living independently Elder Behavior during Disasters Evacuation behavior (Dont move my cheese!) Use of healthcare services & supports Elder healthcare system demands versus community capabilities 20 Planning Consideration #2 Risk Identification and Management Community Specific Clinical
hazards and vulnerabilities hazard impacts on elders risk factors for elders Morbidity and mortality issues Decompensation Strategies for managing elder risk factors 21 Planning Consideration #3 Continuum of Healthcare Systems for Elders During Disasters Similar to the continuum of care concept in aging services there are many stakeholders in the continuum of healthcare & support services
Reflects functional roles and responsibilities, relationships, dependencies, and interdependencies that link stakeholders together on behalf of elders during disasters Supports the identification of gaps in the healthcare continuum for elders during disasters 22 Continuum of Healthcare ~~ Normal (Sunny) Day ~~ Medical Equipmen t& Supplies Family Support Home & Comm.based Services Medical
