Griswold Home Care Reminds Families to Be Aware of the Impact of Heat on the Elderly


Williston, VT -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/27/2019 -- Individuals over the age of 65 are more likely to experience health issues caused by excessive heat. As the body grows older, it is less resilient and does not react well to sudden or drastic changes in temperatures. Those living at home may find that receiving assistance from a caregiver can help lower the risk of heat exhaustion and other heat-related health problems.
