Safety Solutions for Seniors in Encino

The CDC estimates that about 300 people die from heat related issues, and many more suffer from heat stroke and heat exhaustion.  With summer comes beautiful weather, and many people look forward to spending the day outdoor.  However, for senior citizens, their body do not cool off at the rate young people do, so they need to be aware of how they keep themselves cool and avoid heat related problems.

Here are a few tips for the elderly so they don’t run into issues in the future.  When a room is not properly ventilated, temperature and humidity tends to rise, which is worse when there are no fans or air conditioning.  While it may be conventional thinking to open up windows, but many seniors keep them close for security reasons despite of the heat.  Dehydration is also a big problem, fluids and electrolytes are lost at an accelerated rate during the heat, and the side effects from that can be dangerous.  So just remember, keep cool and stay hydrated, and do not put you health in jeopardy because you might want to save money on electricity.

Caregivers such as Stacey Salcedo, Camila Reyes, and Mary Surwillo are just prime examples of the type of reliability A-1 Home Care in Encino provides to our clients.  No matter if it is After Surgery Care, Arthritis Care, Parkinson’s Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Incontinence Care, Post Stroke Care, Hospice Care, and other Elderly Needs, our free in home assessment and face to face caregiver interview guarantees you a compatible caregiver.  So if you have loved ones living in Encino, Canoga Park, Tarzana, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Northridge, Thousand Oaks, San Marino, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and others in Los Angeles County, don’t hesitate and call us about our in home care service today.
