Summer is the perfect time to relax for retirees, but it can also be dangerous because of the heat and their older age.  To make sure your loved ones are safely enjoying their time this summer, here are some useful tips to will keep seniors safe this summer.

  1. Always stay hydrated – Many of us don’t drink enough water, but this is especially dangerous for seniors because they are more susceptible to dehydration
  2. Keep cool – If it gets too hot, find places with air conditioning.  Whether it is the mall or the library, don’t take the chances and endure the heat.
  3. Wear  sunglasses – Cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are common vision problems for seniors. Ultraviolet rays can further damage your eyes, accelerating the disease’s progress
  4. Exercise in the morning or later in the evening – Exercise is great for us, but never exercise during peak sun hours where risk of heat stroke will be highest
  5. Know your emergency contacts – In case of any health issues, knowing who to call quickly can prevent any further issues.

Seniors have a lot of free time, but don’t be afraid of enjoying outdoor activities because of the danger of the heat. Simply follow these tips and you will have a great time this summer!
