Great weather is finally here!!! While it’s great to get outside for long stretches of time, seniors must be careful of season’s heat and humidity. Older people can’t handle the heat as well as their CAREGivers because they don’t sweat as effectively and have poorer circulation. They may also be taking medications that limit their ability to respond to changes or affect their cooling system, perspiration.
In order to protect your client from heat-related illnesses, as extreme as stroke, there are steps we can take to minimize the risk and ensure that they are able to take advantage of the benefits of this wonderful season.
Knowing about the potential implications of extreme heat and taking preventative measures will ensure that your senior enjoys summer as much today as they did years ago.
