Summer is a time that can be particularly challenging for the elderly. For example, two health-related illnesses – heat exhaustion and heat stroke – can happen with little notice. Both can signal health emergencies that require immediate attention. Early recognition and early intervention are vital.

Signs of Health-Related Illness

  • Headaches/Dizziness/Light headedness
  • Weakness
  • Mood changes
  • Feeling sick/Vomiting
  • Fainting/Passing out
  • Pale clammy or dry skin, or hot, red skin

If a heat-related illness is suspected, call 911 immediately.
