Tips For Keeping Seniors Cool During The Summer

Summer heat waves can be tough to deal with, especially for seniors. Not only are the effects of severe heat more pronounced in the senior community, but many seniors also have trouble realizing when they are over-heating. This is a formula for disaster, which is why it's so important to understand how to protect your loved one. With our senior home care, Visiting Angels┬« Stamford is committed to helping you create a wonderful support system to keep them safe and comfortable. 

Along with our dedicated in-home support, we'd also like to offer some advice for shielding them from the consequences of extreme heat. Since your loved one is likely to be less aware of their body temperature, it's up to you to make sure things don't get out of hand. Take it on yourself to open up windows around their home and make sure they have adequate air flow during car rides. Also, make sure they drink plenty of water and utilize sunscreen whenever they're exposed. 

Above all else, be aware of the warning signs. Symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and headaches can be indications of over-heating. It's critical to get your loved one out of the sun immediately if they are experiencing any of these symptoms. If you do so and the issue doesn't get better, it could be time to seek medical attention.
