Tips for Staying Cool During Record Heat

Even in the cool mountains that surround Givens Great Laurels in Waynesville, July looks to be a scorcher!

Older adults are more likely to experience heat-related health issues, making it especially important to get relief quickly when overheated.

The National Institute on Aging advises:
– Get into a cool, ideally air-conditioned place.
– Drink plenty of fluids but avoid alcohol and caffeine.
– Shower, bathe, or sponge off with cool water.
– Lie down and rest.
