Heat Stroke: Know the Signs

As the mercury rises this summer, it is important to recognize the signs of heat stroke and know how to prevent it. Older people are more susceptible to heat stroke because their bodies are less adaptable to changes in temperature. In addition, certain medications can also affect how their bodies react to changing temperatures. Avoiding strenuous activity during the hottest part of the day, wearing light colored, loose fitting clothing and drinking a lot of water can help prevent heat stroke. Read our blog to learn more about heat stroke symptoms, treatment and prevention.
