The Allure Group Provides the Community with Senior Safety Tips During Summertime

Brooklyn, New York based Nursing Home Consortium The Allure Group offers vital summer safety tips for senior citizens in honor of June 2014 National Safety Month

 
PRLog - Jul. 1, 2014 - Brooklyn, NY (June 2014) During the month of June, The Allure Group honors National Safety Month and encourages others to raise awareness about crucial safety issues facing seniors in the summertime. By educating the community, The Allure Group aims to reduce the risk of heat stroke and other injuries and illnesses amongst the senior citizen population in the hot summer weather.

With the sunny summer months approaching, many community seniors face the risk of heat-induced illness such as sunburn, dehydration and heat exhaustion/stroke. Keeping this in mind, The Allure Group, a Brooklyn based nursing home consortium, offers a list of important rules to always keep in mind to stay healthy in the heat.

●   Try to remain indoors with the air conditioning on. If the temperature is in the 90s or higher and you don’t have an air conditioner, go somewhere that has one, such as a shopping mall, library, senior center or movie theater. Fans can’t provide enough cooling in such heat.

●   Save your daily walk or outdoor activities for when the weather is cooler, such as when the sun is going down or before it comes up.

●   Drink lots of cold water, clear juices and other liquids that don’t contain alcohol or caffeine as these two can easily dehydrate you.

●   Take cooler showers than usual, or sponge baths when you’re feeling warm. Wet wash-cloths or towels with cool water and put them on your wrists, ankles, neck and under your armpits to help cool down.

●   Beware of heat stroke. Signs of heat stroke include an altered mental state, not sweating and nausea. If you see someone displaying these symptoms, seek medical care immediately.

“We all love being outside in the sun during these summer months but it is imperative we keep these basic safety rules in mind. The New York City sun is very powerful, and we must take all proper precautions to prevent any harm,” remarked Melissa Guglielmo, Chief Operating Officer at The Allure Group.
