Have a healthy summer!
Sometimes all it takes are simple tips to prevent health problems.
When it’s really hot, drinking a lot of water or spending a few hours in a cool place during the day is great. But do you think about other people around you? Do you know anyone who is vulnerable to heat? Who are they and what can you do to help them?
Older people and people with chronic diseases, mental health problems or drug or alcohol addiction can be more vulnerable to heat. When it’s very hot, their health can deteriorate quickly.
