Sometimes it is hard to tell if a person has hypothermia. Look for clues. Is the house very cold? Is the person not dressed for cold weather? Is the person speaking slower than normal and having trouble keeping his or her balance?

Watch for the signs of hypothermia in yourself, too. You might become confused if your body temperature gets very low. Talk to your family and friends about the warning signs so they can look out for you.

Older adults can lose body heat FAST—faster than when they were young. Changes in your body that come with aging can make it harder for you to be aware of getting cold. A big chill can turn into a dangerous problem before an older person even knows what's happening. Doctors call this serious problem hypothermia.

Be sure to check on your loved ones and neighbors this weekend. Temperatures will be dropping again to dangerous levels. Make sure their heat is set to at least 68–70°F as anything lower can be a potential risk, especially for the elderly.

Having fun and staying safe at the same time was the name of the game. Ralph DeLucia performed via live stream on our iN2L system while being solo in the Community Room. Kudos to our very creative Therapeutic Recreation Department!
