TULSA, Oklahoma -- Be prepared before you get that middle-of-the-night call that an elderly loved one has had a medical emergency.

Occasional trips for emergency medical care can become a fact of life for caregivers. Now there's a free resource that can help get loved ones the help they need as quickly as possible.

The Caring for Your Parents: Senior Emergency Kit is a tool that can help caregivers keep important information handy - information that includes the patient's doctors, medications, pharmacy and insurance information.

"Research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care network has revealed that many grown children don't know all their should about their older adults' medical histories," said Andrew Garrean, owner of the Tulsa Home Instead agency.

"This resource will provide family caregivers with the tools they need to be ready for the unexpected."
