All Heart Home Care Agency, which provides home care services in New York City, urges the elderly and those with disabilities to stay safe this summer by taking steps to keep cool at home

BROOKLYN, N.Y., July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- All Heart Home Care Agency, a home care agency NYC offering full service, offers tips for the elderly and disabled on minimizing their exposure to summer heat at home. Following this advice can help reduce the risk of suffering from heat stroke or developing health complications from a combination of heat and underlying health conditions, such as diabetes.

All Heart Home Care Agency urges the elderly and disabled to follow several important steps to keep their homes as cool as possible this summer. These tips include the following:

  • Drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day
  • Avoiding caffeinated drinks to lower the risk of dehydration
  • Staying in air conditioned rooms as much as possible
  • Closing the curtains to block the sun's rays
  • Avoiding going outdoors in the heat, especially between the hours of 10am and 2pm, when the sun is strongest
  • Taking a cool bath
  • Wearing loose-fitting clothing made from cotton or other natural fabrics.

It can be difficult for those who are elderly or disabled to follow these tips on their own, so it is also crucial for family members or neighbors to check on them when the weather is hot and watch for signs of heat stroke, such as a flushed face and dizziness. Having a caregiver around to ensure that these tips are followed can provide families with peace of mind.

"We understand that it's not always possible for families to care for loved ones around-the-clock. Our caregivers provide compassionate, comprehensive service that eases this burden," says All Heart Home Care Agency director Steven Gershkowitz.

All Heart Home Care Agency offers nursing assistance, physical therapy, daily hygiene care and other home care services in the New York City area. Their health aides excel at providing superior service for those who are elderly or disabled.
