Hot weather can be very dangerous to seniors putting them at risk for heat stroke or heat exhaustion. According to a recent University of Chicago Medical Center study found that 40% of heat-related fatalities in the U.S. were among people over 65.

Seniors are at risk due to their inability to notice changes in their body temperatures, underlying health conditions and medications.

Keep it safe in the hot weather following these tips:

  • Drink Plenty of Liquids to avoid dehydration. Even if you are not thirsty, be sure to drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and caffeinated beverages.
  • Dress for the weather, don’t over dress. Try to wear light colored, lightweight and loose fitting clothing when out in the heat. Wear a wide-brimmed hat when out in the sun.
  • During the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. try to stay indoors. This is the hottest part of the day. Try to do your errands during the cooler parts of the day to avoid the heat.
  • Avoid exercise and strenuous outdoor activities- take it easy in the heat.
  • Watch the news or listen to the radio for the heat index when planning outside activities. If the heat index is high, stay inside. High humidity adds moisture to the air which can impair your body’s ability to cool itself.
