Bloomfield Hills, MI August 1, 2012 – Many people celebrate with barbeques, trips to the beach and spending time outdoors at parks and in their backyards. The national home care company is reminding seniors enjoy outdoor activities with summer safety tips in mind.
“We encourage our clients to spend time with friends and family outdoors,” said ComForcare Home Care President Mark Armstrong. “We just want to help make sure everyone stays safe and well in the process.”
To raise awareness, ComForcare is sharing safety tips for seniors and their families on its website and blog. The tips include wearing sun protection including a wide-brimmed hat, UV-protected sunglasses and sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher applied throughout the day. The home care service also recommends that seniors limit their time out in the sun during the peak hours of 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
ComForcare wants everyone to know the signs and symptoms of dehydration including red or hot skin without sweat, headache, dizziness, nausea and confusion.
