Emergency Preparedness for Seniors with Janel Doughten
Hosted by the Greater Stonegate Village
This session will focus on emergency preparedness for older adults and caregivers. Everyone needs to be prepared in the event of an emergency, but older adults may have challenges that are not always fully considered in many emergency situations. Being aware of those challenges and possible solutions can help older adults and their caregivers prepare in advance and practice their emergency plans to make sure they have the solutions before an emergency.
Janel Doughten has worked with the B’nai B’rith Center for Senior Services for over 30 years and is currently the associate director of the Center for Senior Services. Among her major duties, Janel coordinates and is a speaker at an annual three-day training conference in the spring for the network of CSS managers and service coordinators and a four-day training conference in the fall for the managers and boards of directors of the CSS portfolio.
Janel also provides training for the residents of the senior housing buildings and participants in the Resident Leadership Retreat, as well as at various national industry conferences: Leading Age, American Association of Service Coordinators, SPM Managers and Maintenance Trainings; and local conferences, such as Leading Age DC and other DC-based HUD-subsidized senior housing buildings.
Janel also serves on the board of directors of two HUD-subsidized senior housing buildings. Janel holds a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice from Old Dominion University.
