Your Home Health Centre
Be prepared.
Boy Scout Motto

More of your health care takes place in your home than anywhere else. Having the right tools, medicines, supplies, and information on hand will improve the quality of your self-care.

Store all your self-care tools and supplies in one central location, such as a large drawer in the bedroom or family room. Use the charts about tools and supplies in this chapter as checklists for keeping your home health centre well stocked.

Note: If small children are around, keep your supplies out of reach or stored in containers or cabinets with childproof safety latches.

Be familiar with the disaster preparation and response plan for your area. Keep the appropriate supplies on hand.
