Concerns for Seniors and Elderly During Upcoming Heat Wave

We hear it on the news every single year, fatality due to the excessive heat in the summer because there was not enough proper cooling provided.  An eerie fact from the AARP suggests that more people die from heat than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes combined each year.  Those who are more susceptible to such danger in our population are the young and the elderly, and two-thirds of the deaths from extreme heat happens in those who are older than 65.  Especially for those who have difficulties navigating around their home, it may even be difficult for them to even reach for the fan or air conditioning system.  Because the body is not able to cool down, heart related problems play a big role in such fatalities. As a result, friends and family should check on their elderly loved ones often, and if needed, hire a professional caregiver during full responsibilities.

If the person is displaying symptoms of a heat stroke, such as skin turning red, dizziness, nausea, and more, it is imperative to get the person to a shady and cool location immediately.  Furthermore, cool the person by spraying cool water and fan them. But most important, seek medication attention.
