Suddenly you are faced with decisions which never entered your mind until now. Which homecare provider should I choose? Who can I trust? Will they be the right fit? Will they provide the best care for my loved one? At Hiawatha HomeCare, we recognize how overwhelming this can be.

 

The last thing you need is uncertainty. Trusting the professionals who are providing care for your loved one is vital. We understand this and know the personal details of providing home health care because we’ve lived it for over two decades. Our first client was my own son, Michael.

 

Caring… It’s more than a word. To us, it’s a calling. It’s delivering what we do best on a daily basis…Providing our clients with exceptional home health care.

With the approaching winter storm we put together some helpful information to help keep you warm and safe.

Weather forecasts often provide ample warning to prepare for an impending blizzard. In this event, candles, flashlights, a battery operated radio, cellular telephones, and if possible, a generator, are highly beneficial because electricity and telephone services may be disrupted for several days or weeks.
Plan ahead for winter storms at home:
Stay inside. When using alternative heat from a fireplace, wood stove, space heater, etc., use fire safeguards and properly ventilate to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide gas is colorless and odorless.
If you have no heat, close off unneeded rooms. Stuff towels or rags in the cracks under doors. Cover windows at night.
Eat and drink. Food provides the body with energy for producing its own heat. Keep the body replenished with fluids to prevent dehydration.
Wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing. Remove layers to avoid overheating, perspiration and subsequent chill.
Plan ahead for winter traveling:
• Keep your gas tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines.
• Let someone know your timetable and primary and alternate routes.
• Carry a winter emergency car kit inside your car.
If caught in a vehicle during a winter storm:
• If you have a cell phone, notify authorities of your situation
• Stay in your car or truck; disorientation occurs quickly in wind-driven snow and cold.
• Run the motor about ten minutes each hour for heat. Open the window a little for fresh air to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Make sure the exhaust pipe is not blocked.
• Exercise from time to time by vigorously moving arms, legs, fingers and toes to keep blood circulating and to keep warm.
• Make yourself visible to rescuers. Turn on the dome light at night when running the engine. Tie a colored cloth (preferably red) to your antenna or door. Raise the hood to indicate trouble if snow stops falling.
Make a Winter Emergency Car Kit:
• Blankets/sleeping bags
• Flashlight with extra batteries
• First-aid kit and Water container
• Utility knife and Tool kit
• High-calorie, non-perishable food
• Extra clothing to keep dry
• Shovel and Sack of sand (or cat litter)
• Windshield scraper and brush
• Tow rope and Booster cables
