Total Articles: 12
Winter is approaching! A time for festivals and celebration. A time that brings family, friends, and loved ones together for the holidays. While winter is characterized by frosty mornings, great food, festive fun, and memories to create, it is also associated with many health hazards, especially for the elderly. The winter weather conditions can cause physical problems like diseases, sickness, slips & falls and also emotional problems due to isolation and lack of social connect. Considering the following tips can help keep the seniors in your life safe and healthy this winter.
Get Winter Ready
By planning ahead and getting things ready for the perils of the season while it’s still relatively warm outside, you can significantly reduce the risk of being caught unprepared by an early winter. It is a good idea to inspect doors and windows for any cracks that may allow chilly air to enter your home and get them fixed. Disinfect your winter clothes, layers, and blankets by leaving them out in the sun to avoid lung and skin infection. Make sure your winter appliances like room-heaters, electric blankets, geysers are working. Seniors living in residential Communities can contact the maintenance staff well in advance to ensure that the heaters and geysers are functioning properly. Most luxury senior communities have the option of being temperature controlled or are naturally ventilated to make the best use of natural weather. At Antara Senior Living, senior living communities in India rooms have the option of being temperature controlled and are well-ventilated. Most areas have attached verandah spaces for indoor and outdoor use.
Confining yourself to home and following a sedentary lifestyle during winter can pose risks to heart, joints, and memory. Staying indoors day after day can cause loneliness and depression as well. If you stay alone, have a routine for yourself, do some indoor exercises, visit your family or neighbors often. Push yourself to stay active. If you are in a senior community engage in social activities within the campus, connect with fellow residents over a hot cup of coffee. Most luxury senior living communities like Antara offer indoor spaces like The Reading Room, The Bridge Room, The Card Room, The Creative Workshop, The Den, The Theatre, and provides its residents with a warm and friendly atmosphere to stay socially connected while being safe from the perils of winter.
Get Yourself Checked
Winter comes with flu, joint pain, breathing troubles, dryness of skin, which seniors are more vulnerable to because of weakening immune systems. Getting a thorough check-up before the onset of winter and following the due precautions can help avoid these issues. Most Luxury Senior Communities offer preventative health check-ups; make reasonable efforts to get yourself checked for even the slightest symptoms as it can lead to secondary infections such as pneumonia. Antara Dehradun provides doctors, nurses and an ambulance with paramedics on the premises for emergencies. The Max Super Specialty Hospital is a short drive from the premises. Seniors too deserve to enjoy the winter season despite the physical and emotional risks that come along with the season. Preparing ahead of time and following due precautions can ensure you have a safe holiday season.
