Wife and I live in Pinellas County.She is a double amputee (legs), as well as diabetic. Our Apt is in a level C Evac zone. We've discussed staying put for a less serious storm, because our building is really solid.
If we did have to Evac, it would be to a special needs shelter due to her medical issues. I'm looking for advice on what to take, being that space in a shelter is so limited.

Assuming you're talking about hurricanes, I'd think it best to focus on medications and food stuff that she can eat. As a recently diagnosed diabetic myself, I know the choices are limited, but the frequency in eating may vary due to the diabetis.
Then you'd want to prepare his/her bug out bags for the essentials. I don't know what the "special needs" shelter will/won't supply, but there's a list on this board to help with what might be needed. Thing is, you'll want to do the bug out bags BEFORE the shelter is warranted, i.e, ready & waiting to go .

Going to a limited space facility at the last moment doesn't sound like a great idea. Maybe you could get a volunteer position with perks like a close in parking space, good to have extra storage but liable to be broken into.
I just got a print out from my doc for my prescriptions. Good to have if pharmacy is shut down or no power or computer records available.
Ask center what to bring and see how you can help now. Be known and recognized. Maybe join cert.
