June is Summer Safety Month. Here are some summer tips for the elderly.


Drink cool, non-alcoholic beverages.






If possible, seek an air-conditioned environment. If you don’t have air conditioning, consider visiting an air-conditioned shopping mall or public library to cool off.





If possible remain indoors in the heat of the day.






Take  a cool shower, bath, or sponge bath.






Do not engage in strenuous activities.






Wear lightweight clothing.
