We are professionals who have lived through disaster and trauma and know first hand what should be planned for. We have formed OwnYourCrisis,Inc, to make a difference for other families who have not yet planned for their safety and communication when they are in trouble. We offer essential perceptions and considerations for every family to work with in order to be ready for their personal post disaster situation. The truth is that accidents and losses happen with and without a hurricane. Most of us have not planned for this possibility beyond an insurance policy.
The end result is a specific plan that is built around the needs of your family, as well as a communication network of family and friends to respond with predetermined functions for your immediate needs.
BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES! LET YOUR PLAN SPEAK FOR YOU WHEN YOU CANNOT SPEAK FOR YOURSELF.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An Incident, a Network, and a solid plan
An example is Liz. She is a mentally challenged adult. She has always lived with her mom, aunt and uncle. Health issues hit her mom and aunt badly around the same time. After a period of treatment, the doctors and the social workers decided that the best answer for these women was to have them live in a nursing home in the area. This left Liz with her uncle who did not want the responsibility of watching over her. At this point, Liz was left with no help or answers. She had always had her mom to arrange things. The uncle decided to close the house and have Liz out and on her own in two weeks.
Since my office was part of her care she came to me to ask for help. So I used my network to call social service, her family, state housing aid and others. It took awhile for Liz to be placed in a group home. If a contingency plan was a standard procedure, then one call to our system would have alerted all needed parties for her instantly, and the coordination of efforts for her survival when she was abandoned would have been swifter and much more effective then what happened. If my network had not been set up to help, she would be in a homeless shelter instead of a group home. Anyone of us could have a sudden life change crisis. Pre-plan your ending.
