This Friday is Heat Safety Awareness day, but for Southern California, the heat has already arrived a week or so. Therefore, it is even more important to raise awareness about heat safety for seniors. People who have weaker immune system and are experience different health conditions are more vulnerable in the heat, and this describes a majority of seniors. Since elderly people do not adjust to sudden change in temperature as well as younger folks, heat stroke is a serious problem. When their body cannot regular the heat, it can cause permanent disability or even death if it is not treated promptly according to the CDC.
Signs of a heat stroke include high body temperature that is above 103°F, yet there is no perspiration on the skin. A throbbing heading and a rapid pulse is also a common symptom of a heat stroke. Finally, the person might also experience dizziness and nauseousness as a result of the heat stroke. Look for these signs during the summer heat to make sure your elderly loved ones get immediate help if a heat stroke happens.
