Winter weather emergencies can be difficult for many older Kentuckians. Senior citizens should consider safety concerns, including falling, hypothermia and frost bite, before venturing out in bad weather.
Many seniors have medical conditions that require treatment. They may run low on medicine or have no way to get to their family doctor. In the event of a medical emergency, call 911 first. Some pharmacies may deliver medications, even in bad weather. Call your pharmacist or physician with questions about medications.
