Winter Safety Tips

Winter2014*

Here we are: January 2014! Can you believe it? Happy New Year! What are you planning for this year? What goals and dreams do you have for this year? Outdoor workouts? Tropical getaways? I know, I know… you’re saying that’s all wonderful, get your head out of the clouds… it’s a new year, but we still have a bunch of winter to get through. Too true. Golden Horizons Elder Care Services has gathered a few tips for winter safety, especially for seniors, take a look:

  1. Prevent slips and falls. Make sure the pathways are clear of ice and snow. Wear shoes with good traction. Take off your shoes by the door so melted water doesn’t cause an indoor slip hazard.
  2. Winter Depression can be a doosy – fight it. Eat a multicolored diet for full nutrients and energy. Join a gym and make yourself go at least 3 times a week. It boosts your metabolism and motivation. Arrange to have someone check in on you, or if younger, check in on someone older. Companionship reduces isolation and feelings of loneliness.
  3. Dress smart for outdoors. Wear layers (these can be stylish too). Little children and seniors are especially susceptible to illnesses due to the cold. Hypothermia can be a danger. Dress in layers, warm socks, waterproof shoes/boots, hats, scarves, gloves. Appendages are susceptible to frostbite if left exposed to the cold. Cover up, enjoy the snow!
  4. Make sure the car is ready for winter – a full car checkup is good for heading into winter – oil, tires, battery etc. Make sure it has at least a 1/2 tank of gas at all times. When starting the car, give it ample time to warm up before heading out. It prevents more problems in the long run. Keep blankets and emergency kits in your car during the winter as well.
  5. Make sure your carbon monoxide alarms are working and ready with fresh batteries.
  6. In case of severe winter weather, have emergency kits in the house with access to flashlights, fresh batteries, canned goods or food that can be eaten cold or without needing to be refrigerated, blankets and other layers. Move around to keep the blood moving and to warm up. Keep a battery-operated radio nearby to keep abreast of the latest on power restoration or weather alerts.
These tips can help make sure winter is safe and enjoyable. Happy New Year from the offices of Golden Horizons’ – Old Saybrook, Groton, and West Hartford (serving Cheshire, Wallingford and Greater Meriden) and enjoy the snow… knowing, for sure, we continue to have some.
