Tip# 5: Holidays are a fabulous time to spend with your family! If you are traveling or taking an elderly family member to the beach or an outdoors event, make sure to keep them well hydrated, and protected from taking in too much sunshine. Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion is very common among the elderly population and should be taken seriously. Prior to your excursion, ask their Physician what period of time is safe, and what precautions should be taken if your loved one is planning to attend an outdoors event for an extended period of time.
