Newton Wellness Talks: Drink plenty of fluids as temps rise
As temperatures soar, warm weather activities can increase the risk of dehydration. Not getting enough fluids, especially when it is hot outside, can pose serious health problems for anyone, but the elderly are at particular risk for dehydration.
Drinking plenty of fluids is the key to staying hydrated and water is the best choice. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to start drinking water. In the summer heat, drink fluids throughout the entire day.
