There are many benefits to seniors of living in a retirement community. One is “peace of mind” that they will be safe and secure with people around to check in on them, particularly as we approach hurricane season. Hurricanes often pose more damage risks than just wind damage. During the 500 year storm of Hurricane Harvey, the biggest threat to Houston was flooding. Treemont is fortunate to be located where there was no building flooding during Harvey. But Treemont still had to minimize issues related to the general impact of flooding on staff access and power outages.
Living at Treemont provides a layer of comfort since the community prepares for all types of emergencies. Independent living has a small power generator that can keep its kitchen refrigerators and freezer operational. From that, Treemont can power its phone system for the front office and connect some lighting for the lobby area. Treemont staff is present to distribute flashlights
