How To Stay Cool During This Summer?

Summer is here so are the elderly heat stroke and heat exhaustion problems. A heatwave is a prolonged period of excessive heat, generally, 10 degrees or more above average, often combined with excessive humidity. Hot weather is dangerous, and seniors are particularly prone to its threat. Given below are some tips to avoid this.

According to alextimes.com, “Below are a few tips to stay cool.

Drink plenty of liquids

Dehydration is the root of many heat related health problems. Drink plenty of water or juice, even if you’re not thirsty. But remember to avoid alcoholic or caffeinated drinks, as they can actually contribute to dehydration.

Wear appropriate clothes

When it’s hot out, wear light-colored, lightweight, loose-fitting clothes and a wide-brimmed hat.

Stay indoors during the mid-day

During periods of extreme heat, the best time to run errands or be outdoors is before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m., when the temperature tends to be cooler.

Know the warning signs of heat-related illness

Dizziness, nausea, headache, rapid heartbeat, chest pain, fainting and breathing problems are all warning signs. Seek help immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.

Seek air-conditioned environments

Seniors whose houses aren’t air-conditioned should consider finding an air-conditioned place to spend time during extreme heat. Seniors without convenient access to any air-conditioned place might consider a cool bath or shower.”
