Tips from Tanner: When the Weather Heats Up, Seniors Need to Stay Cool
Summer means more time to do the activities you love — like taking
long early morning walks or working in the garden. But it’s important

Each year, heat is responsible for about 400 deaths in the United States, mostly among the elderly.
Staying safe this summer means knowing the warning signs of
heat-related illness and the reasons why it’s so important for seniors
to beat the heat.
