Summer Heat

Now that the long awaited summer season is in full swing it is important to remind ourselves of the steps to take to deal with the heat. Summer in the midwest seems so short so it is natural to want to make the most of the time. Long periods in the sun and heat are dangerous and could lead to sun burn, dehydration, and heat stroke.
As we age we are less tolerant of the heat and must take steps to avoid to heat related illnesses.
  • Drink more to stay hydrated.
  • Take frequent breaks from the sun.
  • Stay inside between 3 and 5pm.
Pay attention to the warning signs of heat related illnesses.
  • Tiredness
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Muscle cramps
If you experience any of these symptoms get out of the heat and try to cool down. If the symptoms do not stop or worsen, call 911.
