Help Seniors Stay Safe During the Summer Heat

With record-breaking high temperatures happening across our state, we're all feeling the heat. But for older adults (65 years or older), summer heat can be especially dangerous​​. Chronic medical conditions, prescription medicines, and just not being able to adjust to extreme temperatures as well as younger people can all lead to heat stress.​
