Adults suffering from chronic illness or cardio respiratory disease can stay in a room with 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) indoor temperature.
- Air conditioners and fans should be properly serviced regularly during summer, and all the rooms used by the seniors should be properly ventilated.
- WATCH OUT FOR WATER DEHYDRATION AMONG THE ELDERS
Make sure older people stay hydrated, they may also become less aware of thirst and have difficulty adjusting to changes in temperature. Remember to drink water frequently or take advantage of the moisturizing properties of coconut water.
