10 ways older adults can stay cool on a budget

The Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio, Inc. cautions older persons that they are most vulnerable to heat-related illnesses to be aware that these extreme conditions pose a significant threat to their health, especially to those who have cardiac or respiratory problems.

1. Remain indoors as much as possible – This is especially important
for older adults with respiratory allergies.

2. Take prescriptions with water – At least 3-4 regular-sized bottles
of water a day should be consumed.

3. Keep your curtains closed –Keeping the curtains, blinds, and shades
shut during the day can reduce unwanted heat that comes the house
by 30%.

4. Putting a bowl of ice in front of a fan – Filling a metal bowl with ice
in front of a fan will circulate cooler air throughout the house.

5. Staying Hydrated – Cold non-alcoholic beverages, help keep the
body cool.

6. Cold cloths – Applying a cold cloth to your neck and wrists can help
regulate the temperature of the body.

7. Get help with utility payments, air conditioners and fans – Many
older adults are eligible for help with utility payments, air conditioners
and fans by contacting Pathway at 567-803-0010. Those making
$1,835.34 or less for a single-person household or $2,479.73 or less
for a two-person household are eligible.

8. Use Air Conditioning Sparingly

9. Rest 30-60 minutes between activities

10. Wear light-colored, loose-fitting, lightweight clothing.
In contrast to violent weather events that cause extensive physical
destruction, the hazards of extreme heat are dramatically less apparent,
especially at the onset. We remind the community to check on older or
disabled family members or neighbors who live alone or may be
experiencing problems coping with the heat.

Note: If on a special fluid-restricted diet or taking diuretics, consult your physician about fluid intake during hot weather

Signs of Heat Exhaustion: Headache, sluggishness or fatigue, thirst, blurred vision, nausea or upset stomach, vomiting, profuse sweating, moderate increase in body temperature

Treatment: Fan or move out into air-conditioning; apply cool, wet cloths; take small sips of water; if condition does not improve, call 911!

Signs of Heat Stroke: Heat stroke is a much more serious condition. Signs include: headache, sluggishness or fatigue, dizziness, disorientation, agitation or confusion, seizures, hot dry skin (absence of sweating), increased (inner) body temperature, loss of consciousness, rapid heartbeat, hallucinations – Call 911 immediately – heat stroke can be deadly! Until help arrives treat the same way as with heat exhaustion (described above).
