The special needs of elderly people in information dissemination


In his thesis about older adults' preparedness, Tuohy (2014) argues that older people have special information needs about preparedness as they want to know how they can prepare and behave to keep their relative independence during and after a disaster. They also seek information about how to evacuate given their limited capacities for instance. However, their sources of information did not differ significantly in relation to the general public.
