Summer is here! One of the many pleasures of summer is the ability to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. It can be a perfect time to take a walk, go to the beach and have a picnic. But as temperatures rise above normal, it becomes difficult for all to enjoy the sunshine. Often we find our home care clients in Burnaby, North Vancouver and West Vancouver wanting to stay at home which can at times be even hotter. Extreme heat can affect everyone, but as people age they typically have a harder time regulating their body temperature.
Our staff at Axiom Care Solutions encourage our clients to drink lots of water even before feeling thirsty, stay in a cool place, and if they are experiencing symptoms such as dizziness, confusion, feeling weak or faint and suspect you have heat stroke, we help them seek the advice of a physician.
