EasyCall is your partner in staying safe this summer. With so many fun-filled days, it’s essential to keep on top of our health as the weather heats up.
Get Active with Outdoor Activities
Studies show seniors who remain active lead more enjoyable lives and experience less depression and loneliness.
Look for water activities at local pools and private gyms; community events like fairs and festivals; or volunteer your time with local charities or other organizations.
As we age, our bodies have to work harder to stay cool. Avoid heat-related stress and illness (hyperthermia), which can affect our brains and vital organs.
When it gets hot, turn on the AC. If you’re trying to save on your PG&E bill, visit air-conditioned public places, like the mall or library.
The sun is most extreme between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., so schedule your outdoor activities to avoid the hottest part of the days.
Drink plenty of fluids and fill up on fruits and veggies to stay well hydrated. When it’s hot, avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages, which can rob the body of precious fluids.
Cover Up & Wear Sunscreen
Sunburns can be painful, and prolonged unprotected exposure to the sun can lead to skin cancer. Cover up with long sleeved but lightweight clothes and broad-spectrum sunscreen.
