Where You Need To Drive May Not Always Be Clear

Updated: Feb 23

Home health workers travel year-round to tend to the needs of others. Winters in Maine may be lovely, but they pose challenges for frequent travelers! Plan for the moments that snow or ice stops us in our travels. Here are a few items that would be helpful to have on hand in case you are unable to get immediate assistance.

  • A compact foldable shovel

  • A small bag of sand or kitty litter. This can help gain traction on slippery roads.

  • Jumper cables. Cold weather can turn a weakened battery into a dead battery overnight.

  • Have a set of winter gear such as hats, gloves, scarves, boots and blankets in your vehicle.

  • Have a portable charger in case your car is unable to start to charge your phone.

  • First aid kit for emergencies

  • Flashlight to signal passing vehicles, look under the hood or look in your vehicle for needed items.

  • Water and non-perishable food in case you are stuck for hours while waiting for assistance.

  • In case you didn't know, some auto care centers offer free battery tests! Check with your local center today.
