For senior citizens, summer can be quite a challenging period – besides dehydration, the heat can also trigger all sorts of illnesses – that is why, whether they are living alone or with a carer, it is important that they are kept cool and hydrated at all times.
It is not enough that elders are situated in a safe temperature room; it is important that they receive proper hydration. Always secure a pitcher of water or refreshment by their side at all times and monitor their fluid intake. It can be difficult to counter dehydration once it triggers so it is much better to undergo preventive measures.
