Safety Tips for Outdoor Activities

elderly careWhen you head outside with your loved one, be prepared for the heat. Hydration is particularly important during the summer, so bring cold water with you and see they get at least six to eight cups of water each day. The cold temperature of the water can also help regulate body temperature. Suggest your elder wear a hat to protect their face from those harsh UV rays. Keep sunscreen with you and remind your loved one to reapply as needed.

How to Protect Them at Home

If you can’t be with your elder all the time, it’s essential you or someone else checks on them regularly. Daily visits to ensure their air conditioning is on, they are properly hydrated, and they aren’t suffering from heat-related illnesses will give you peace of mind. If you cannot check in every day, a home care service can help. A caregiver will spend as much time as you wish with your loved one, ensuring they are handling the heat well and see to any other needs they have.
