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.
