Senior Resiliency Project

Mission

To assist long-term care facilities, assisted living residences, and independent senior housing to prepare for disasters through site-specific energy resiliency audits and the development of all-hazards emergency plans that emphasize sheltering in place rather than evacuation.

What we do

  • Work with partners, stakeholders, and consultants to assist qualified long-term care facilities, assisted living residences, and independent senior housing facilities to prepare for extreme weather and disasters.
  • Provide free site-specific energy resiliency audits and development of all-hazards plans for shelter-in-place.
  • Engage up to 30 sites across Rhode Island that were directly impacted by Hurricane Irene, Super Storm Sandy, or Winter Storm Nemo.
