Happy Whoop Up Days, Y’all!

Heat Wave

The Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health has asked that the following be shared with Alberta seniors.

For seniors, heat can be extremely dangerous. Those seniors who are chronically ill or take certain medications that interfere with their body’s natural cooling mechanisms may be particularly at risk.  Those who are isolated from friends, family or neighbours, have lower incomes, and/or who have lower literacy may also be at increased risk.

We have some tips in our newsletter for seniors to stay healthy, cool and safe during the summer.
