Summer Health Tips

Preparation and moderation are the key  regarding enjoying time outdoors during the summer months.  By following some common sense tips, seniors can more fully enjoy the good summer weather and avoid over exposure to the sun and heat.

– – What’s The Hurry? — Summer should be enjoyed, so why rush? The faster you move the more your body heats, especially in warm weather.


Shade — Plan outdoor activities for cooler early morning hours. Look for shaded areas such as a covered porch or under a tree to enjoy an activity. Heat can impact seniors as easily indoors as it can outdoors, so be sure air conditioning is used. Lower shades to keep light and heat out.


A Need to Hydrate — Ice cream, popsicles and other frozen treats are refreshing on a warm day. Also, drink plenty of water, juice and sports drinks while avoiding caffeine.  Eat cool or cold foods such as sandwiches and salads.  Here at Schooner, check out our Brass Rail Café in the Village Green and the Camden coffee bar area —we have cool drinks available daily.

Stay hydrated and stay healthy!
