5 Flu Prevention Tips For Seniors

With flu season in full swing, it's important to keep your loved ones protected. Seniors are at higher risk of serious complications from the flu, and Visiting Angels┬« Tulsa is here to help. In addition to our range of home care services offered to Tulsa County area seniors, we would also like to offer up some suggestions for minimizing flu risks for yourself and your loved one. 

Effective Flu Prevention

Here are some steps you can take to reduce the chances of getting the flu:

  • Get vaccinated. This is by far the most effective way to remain safe from seasonal flu. Not only will the shot lower your odds of catching it, but it will also decrease your risk of serious complications if you do catch it. Seniors and their caregivers should all make sure to get vaccinated.  
  • Get regular exercise. Nothing supports a healthy immune system like regular physical activity. 
  • Frequently wash or sanitize your hands. Germs are often transferred from surfaces to your hands to your mouth and nose. Avoid this by regularly washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds at a time. Sanitizer can act as a substitute for seniors who struggle with mobility and want to avoid getting up to the sink every time they need to clean their hands. 
  • Avoid people who are sick. It's important to reduce the risk of infection, even if that means postponing your visit with a sick friend or missing out on a family gathering. 
  • Drink plenty of liquids. Keeping your body hydrated is one of the best ways to reduce the potential for infection.
