Changing Temps Can Affect Health for Aging Veterans and Home Care Matters

Veterans Home Care in Coconut Creek FL

For aging veterans, changing temperatures may be a topic to discuss with considering home care services.Veterans Home Care in Coconut Creek FL

The impact of up-and-down temperatures.

Most people will readily admit they are more susceptible to getting sick when the temperatures are dramatically changing from one day to the next. While August will generally be one of the hottest months of the year, the tail end of August will begin to see temperatures dropping, especially at night.

This can affect health in many different ways, but it can also result in volatile weather conditions. Severe thunderstorms are much more likely when cold fronts begin pushing out warm weather systems. When that happens, the risk of severe weather increases.

It’s important that aging veterans have the proper level of home care so they are safe within the comfort of their home. Paying attention to the weather and forecasts is important, especially if they are planning an afternoon out at the park, going to the beach, or just heading down to the local mall. If there is a risk of severe thunderstorms rolling in during the afternoon, the caregiver should encourage the veteran to either stay close to shelter or get back home.

Seniors should be encouraged to bring along an extra layer of clothing whenever they are heading out. They just never know what they may encounter with regard to fun, activities, and staying out longer than anticipated.

When closing in on September, it will be even more important to dress appropriately and have extra clothing on hand just in case. This will help to improve care for the aging veteran at home.
