Seniors Count-Nashua workshop offers “Hot Weather Safety Tips for Seniors”
NASHUA – Older adults face risks related to hot weather. As people age, their bodies lose some ability to adapt to heat. Medical conditions and medications can compound this issue. There are simple steps that seniors can take to combat a hot weather crisis.
Learn simple steps that seniors can take to combat a hot weather crisis at the July Seniors Count-Nashua workshop, scheduled for Monday, July 8 at the Nashua Senior Activity Center.
Julie Stone, Director of Business Development and Strategy for Home Health & Hospice Care, will present the workshop.
The Nashua Senior Activity Center is located at 70 Temple St. The workshop begins at 1:00pm and is open to the public. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator for Southern New Hampshire Services at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
