Nine Tips for Senior's Caregivers to Battle Allergies

June is an exciting time of year!  Winter boots have been swapped for sandals and flip-flops, the weather is at its best with trees, gardens and flowers in full bloom.  Unfortunately, if you’re one of the many people who have seasonal allergies, this is a season where your nosy many be running, your eyes itching, and you’re sneezing non-stop!  Allergies can be a pain, especially when you’re working with vulnerable seniors who may be alarmed by your cold-like symptoms and catching them as well.  Here are some tips for keeping your allergies under control. 

  • Use the air conditioning instead of keeping window open all day and night.
  • Keep indoor air dry with a dehumidifier
  • Clean floors often with a vacuum
  • Avoid outdoor activity early in the morning, when pollen counts are highest
  • Start taking allergy medications as soon as your symptoms are coming on
  • Take off your shoes and change your clothes when you get home in the evenings to avoid tracking pollen throughout your home
  • Take a shower before you go to bed to rinse pollen out of your hair
  • Consider going to your doctor to get tested for allergies
  • Try natural remedies, such as neti pot.  Studies show that neti pots are effective for minimizing seasonal allergy symptoms
