Our Next Membership Meeting – Saturday, August 18, 2 to 4 p.m.

Emergency Preparedness

Presented by Maureen Kratzer RN, CHCE and Deborah Bryson, Certified CPR Instructor

Our Saturday meeting will focus on emergency preparedness, hospital/ER preparedness, basic CPR, rescue breathing and the Heimlich maneuver in the home setting. It’s important to make sure that you and your family’s basic needs are being met and that they are safe in the event of an emergency, natural or otherwise. The most effective way to do this is by having a great plan in place and to arm ourselves with the knowledge of basic life saving techniques. This is even more important when you or a family member has a medical condition that may require special attention. Our goal is to provide that education, give you the tools to develop your own emergency plan, and teach you basic CPR, rescue breathing, and Heimlich maneuver techniques so your will be confident and prepared when life requires you to be.

CAPS meetings are always open to everyone with an interest in Parkinson’s, and there is always plenty of free parking. Refreshments will follow; members are encouraged to bring their favorite snack and/or cookies to share.
