Alacare Home Health & Hospice reminds those who have elderly neighbors or family members to check on them at least twice a day in the morning, and the afternoon during bitter cold weather. Please make sure that the elderly have adequate food, medication, heat, and warm clothing. Older people have a slower metabolism, and are less active, and therefore they get cold more quickly, and are at risk of hypothermia.
Alacare will try and make all scheduled visits in Alabama on Friday, January 6, 2017 but may experience some delays due to the weather. Alacare patients should contact their Alacare Branch using the number provided on your Alacare Admission Folder if you have any urgent needs.
