June 10, 2021, Austin Texas – New Haven Texas – Ten assisted living and memory care communities throughout Texas – understands that planning for natural disasters involves thoughtful year-round planning to be prepared to respond and support residents quickly during a disaster.
New Haven’s primary goal during any natural disaster is to ensure the ongoing safety of our residents while striving to maintain a high quality of care and services. The New Haven team has developed guidelines based on local and state authorities who all have extensive experience with natural disasters. The New Haven team then builds upon these guidelines to implement well considered plans to determine how the teams will respond to specific situations.
Encountering the latest natural disaster, the winter freeze storm of February 2021, New Haven communities suffered unexpected flood damage. Community leaders immediately referred to their New Haven Disaster and Emergency Manual, which outlines very specific instructions on how to respond to disasters and emergency situations to keep residents safe. New Haven has a multiple-day supply of prescription medications, medical supplies, food, and drinking water to ensure continuity of care so residents can continue with little or no interruption.
New Haven understands that during a natural disaster nothing could be worse than losing communication with a loved one. New Haven uses an automated message service to keep families updated on any information that may affect their loved one. The messaging service provides families with a peace of mind so they stay informed of important information and developments during a natural disaster.
New Haven serves families all over Texas who are not yet ready to make the long-term commitment to assisted living or memory care, which is why we recommend a short stay for those recovering from hospital stay or health related circumstances. New Haven is a safe option for seniors who may be safer at one of their ten Texas communities, rather than in their own homes during a natural disaster. New Haven allows residents to receive access to hot meals, water, medical supplies and 24/7 care in all the comforts of home.
New Haven continues to focus not just on safety but on maintaining community- style living that is vibrant for the residents by providing daily opportunities for social engagement, exercise, and an enhanced dining program. New Haven provides a wide range of benefits from 24/7 care to having the ability to interact with people daily.
New Haven Memory Care serves seniors with dementia, offering specialized memory care programs where there have been significant benefits derived from the residents being able to engage and socialize versus the alternative; being at home alone, isolated and safety at risk during a natural disaster.
