What should seniors do to protect themselves from the sun and heat?

Fun in the Sun

Please be certain that you pack the following items for summertime activities with seniors; sun screen, and umbrella-even a rain umbrella can be helpful and lots of water or juice. It is important to dring more fluids to prevent dehydration and especially critical for the elderly. Circulatory or other conditions make it difficult for older individuals to maintian a balance of fluids in hot humid weather so drink up!
In addition, a sturdy chair and insect repellent should also be available. Pack everything up in a bag-a rolling bag is helpful and easier to manage.
