As the summer heat settles in, finding ways to stay cool and comfortable becomes a top priority for everyone, especially at Eden Healthcare Center, where residents enjoy not just care, but a vibrant living environment. With outside common areas adorned with large trees, stunning flowers, and plenty of sunshine, there are ample opportunities to relish the season while staying safe and cool.


Tips for Beating the Summer Heat


1. Stay Hydrated 

Hydration is key during the summer heat. Residents at Eden Healthcare Center are encouraged to sip on water throughout the day. Adding slices of fresh fruit like lemon or cucumber can make hydrating more enjoyable. Watermelon, with its high water content, is also a refreshing snack that helps keep hydration levels up.

2. Dress Appropriately

Choosing the right clothing can make a significant difference in staying cool. Lightweight, loose-fitting clothes in light colors are ideal for reflecting the sun’s rays and allowing air to circulate around the body. At Eden Healthcare Center, residents can enjoy the sunshine in comfortable attire that keeps them feeling cool and relaxed.

3. Enjoy Shaded Areas

The outside common areas at Eden Healthcare Center provide plenty of shaded spots under large trees. Spending time in these shaded areas not only allows residents to enjoy the beauty of nature but also helps them stay cool and protected from direct sunlight during the peak hours of the day.

4. Cool Treats

Nothing beats the summer heat like indulging in cool treats. At Eden Healthcare Center, residents can enjoy ice cream socials or refreshing fruit popsicles as a delightful way to stay cool and enjoy some social time with friends and caregivers.

These accessories provide instant relief from the summer heat and help maintain a comfortable body temperature.

7. Monitor Sun Exposure

While enjoying the sunshine is uplifting, it’s important to be mindful of sun exposure, especially during peak hours between 10 AM and 4 PM. Residents at Eden Healthcare Center are encouraged to schedule outdoor activities in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the hottest part of the day.
