If you or someone you know is 65 and over, take heed of the daily temperature and always take precautions for protection. The last thing anyone wants is to ride in an ambulance to the hospital. Check out these following tips for a safe and healthy summer!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
It’s important to keep in mind certain medications or water pills prescribed by doctors. If this is the case, always consult a physician for info on how much water to drink during the hot, summer months.
Stick close to Air Conditioning!
Always aim to stay inside where it’s air-conditioned. If the home or place of residence doesn’t have proper air conditioning, contact the local health department or move to a place that does have a functioning AC unit. Tell someone if you or someone you know doesn’t have proper cooling because staying cool is vital to your health. Also, a properly running AC unit is better than a fan in many cases as fans can only cool so much.
Select Cool Wardrobe Options
When headed outside, morning and evening are the best times to be outside since that is when the temperatures are cooler. Remember, there’s no reason to curl in like a hermit crab but taking necessary precautions can be life-saving.
