What's New With Attending Home Care October 2023

Happy October!

As the seasons change on these beautiful days, we find ourselves transitioning from the warmth of summer to the crispness of autumn. While we may not all share the same weather preferences, one thing we can all agree on is the importance of staying comfortable as the warm days stick around for a little while longer and the nights grow colder.

At Attending Home Care, we know it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing weather during this season so we’ve compiled a few of our favorite tips to help you and your loved one enjoy this beautiful time of year to the fullest.

Dress in layers: Mornings may greet us with a chilly breeze, but afternoons can bring warmth pretty quickly. Ensure your loved one is wearing layers to adapt to the temperature fluctuations easily. Starting with a light, long-sleeved shirt and adding a sweater or cardigan that they can easily remove as the day warms up is a perfect compromise for the fluctuating temperatures.

Stay hydrated: While the heat of summer may be behind us, it’s essential to stay hydrated as the days go from cold to warm. Drinking plenty of water helps regulate body temperature and ensures your loved one feels their best no matter the weather.

Check the weather forecast: Before heading out to the garden or to grab the mail, check the daily weather forecast to know what you're up against. Knowing what to expect when taking an outing with a loved one can help you plan what to wear and help them avoid any unexpected discomfort.

Protect against the sun: Even though mornings are chilly, the sun can still be quite intense. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat when spending time outdoors or near windows. Sunglasses are also a good idea to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays on those extra bright days.

Keep a blanket handy: For those chilly evenings or unexpected temperature drops, having a cozy blanket on hand can make all the difference in keeping warm and comfortable.

Adjust your loved ones’ home environment: Inside your loved ones’ home, consider using extra blankets for colder nights and AC during the day, when needed. You can also open the curtains when the sun comes up to let in the sun’s natural warmth and close them when the sun goes down to trap the heat.

As we welcome October and its ever-changing weather patterns, remember that taking simple steps like these can help your loved one stay comfortable and enjoy the beauty of the season.

We wish you a wonderful and comfortable October!

Warmest Regards,

The Attending Home Care Team
