Individuals with chronic illnesses or conditions, and those who love them and who care for them, should build a plan that fits with their unique health needs, that includes:

  • An emergency supply of essential medications if you can’t get to a pharmacy
  • A back-up treatment facility in the event your usual place of care is closed
  • An evacuation plan based on your unique needs, if you might have trouble transporting yourself
