Senior Home Care in New Haven
Tips For Keeping Seniors Cool During The Summer
Not only are many seniors unable to notice when they are over-heating, but they are also at greater risk of heat-induced illness such as heat stroke. Without the right precautions, this can be disastrous. At Visiting Angels® Woodbridge one of the goals of our senior home care is to keep New Haven area residents protected from the summer heat.
As part of our efforts to reduce heat stroke in the senior community, we'd also like to suggest some basic steps you can take to protect your loved one. As a caring relative, your role is to be aware of their limited capacity for detecting their own body temperature, and take the lead. You should make sure they have adequate air flow in their home by opening up windows. When driving in the car, make sure the AC is on or the windows are down.
Don't let them spend too much time exposed to the sun, and make sure they wear adequate sunscreen and drink plenty of water when they do venture out into the heat.
Most critically, be aware of the early signs that something is wrong. Heat stroke can come on quickly for many seniors, so look for symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, and headaches. If they are experiencing any of these, get them out of the sun and seek medical attention if the situation doesn't improve.
