National Senior Citizens Day
National Senior Citizens Day is August 21st. While it may not seem much to you, to the seniors in your world, it could mean everything. While they may not be able to go to the amusement park and ride the rides with you, there is much you can do with them.
Seasonal Changes Do Have an Affect
Have you noticed how, as the days get longer, and warmer, you feel better? Sunshine has a positive effect on your entire being. The warmth of the sun helps to bolster your mood, and the fresh air gives you an overall sense of feeling better.
Stay Cool This Summer

While we can still be stylish, it is important for seniors to monitor body temperature and stay cool. As we age, we don’t have the same ability to sweat as we did earlier in our life … and disgusting as it is, sweat keeps us cool. So in order to avoid serious health concerns like dehydration or stroke or other heat related illness, we need to stay temperature cool.
