Summer is here, which means hot temperatures are beating down on us!! Here are a few tips taken from HealthinAging.org that will help you beat the heat this summer: Staying Safe When It’s Too Darn Hot! When the temperature climbs above 90°F, older adults need to be proactive and take precautions. So check the outside temperature on summer days. If it’s above 90°, older people should keep in mind the following tips: •STAY OUT OF THE SUN if possible. If possible, wait to go out until the sun starts to set or until early the next morning. Adjusting when you go outside could mean a difference of several degrees. •AIR CONDITIONING is your friend. Spend as much time as possible in air conditioned spaces. If you don’t have an air conditioner, go somewhere that is air-conditioned. Read a book at the library, walk around in indoor malls, watch that new movie at the theater, or meet your friends at the senior center. •STAY HYDRATED. Drink plenty of cool water, clear juices, and other liquids that don’t contain alcohol or caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine can dehydrate you (dry you out). •DRESS APPROPRIATELY. Whenever you can, try wearing loose, light-colored clothes (dark-colored clothes absorb heat). Top it off with a lightweight, broad-brimmed hat and you are dressing like a pro! These simple changes will help you both stay cool and avoid sunburn. •DID SOMEONE SAY SUNBURN? Use broad spectrum sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. •COOL DOWN! Take tepid (not too cold or too hot) showers, baths, or sponge baths when you’re feeling warm. Don’t have the time? Then wet washcloths or towels with cool water and put them on your wrists, ankles, armpits, and neck. Stay cool friends!
