Beat the Heat: Summer-savvy senior living in Lynnwood

From fresh, nutritious cuisine to comfortable, air-conditioned spaces, this is summer at its best!

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re fortunate to enjoy generally mild year-round temperatures – not too cold in the winter, and not too hot in the summer.

But sometimes the mercury rises and those favorite summer activities we look forward to can become not only uncomfortable, but risky.

Why? Heat can be challenging for older adults – they may not adjust as well as younger people to sudden temperature increases, and medical conditions or medications can affect how they react to heat and humidity.

The good news is that there are a variety of steps we can all take to mitigate the risks of heat. For example, the CDC recommends staying in air-conditioned surroundings when possible, drinking more water than you typically would, and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink; if your doctor advises limiting water intake due to medications, be sure to ask how much you should consume in hot weather, the CDC advises.

Additionally, avoid using the stove or oven to cook, cool down with cool showers or baths, and adapt physical activities to the weather conditions.

For those residents making their home at Quail Park of Lynnwood, it’s easy to enjoy an active, social retirement no matter the weather outside.

From the expansive common areas to your individual suite, enhanced assisted living or independent living cottage, air conditioning keeps things cool, even on the hottest days.

Even better, with those temperature-controlled spaces reaching right through to the indoor pool, gym and activity areas, you can continue exercising comfortably and enjoying all those active living pastimes, when you want to.

While each suite also boasts its own kitchen, there’s no need to cook when the weather’s warm, or any other time you’d rather let someone else tend the stove – Quail Park’s culinary team crafts healthy, nutritious cuisine that’s as good as it is good for you!

And, if you need a little extra help at any time – summer or winter – they’ve built an exceptional network of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals to ensure residents have the care they need to live well!
