Spring into summer
Helping older people stay safe and well this summer
The warmer summer months are the time for getting outdoors, having picnics and barbecues, enjoying the warm weather and relaxing in the sunshine.
The higher temperatures and a stronger sunshine can pose some serious health risks though, particularly to older people. During the fantastic summer of 2018, many older people struggled to keep cool and it’s vital that some precautionary measures are taken to keep safe and well in the warmer months.
Dudley Council is running a summer campaign – ‘spring into summer’, this summer, which aims to help older people stay safe, well, healthy and happy over the warmer, months. An information booklet will list hints and tips to stay well, as well as services and organisations that can help people keep healthy, in touch with other people, avoiding feeling isolated and happy this summer. Look out for the booklet at pharmacies, libraries and other local pick up points. Find out more at www.dudley.gov.uk/summerwellbeing
