3 Helpful Winter Safety Tips For Elders In San Gabriel Valley

With the weather getting colder and colder, many elders in LA and OC may find themselves feeling condemned indoors until the weather warms up again—but at the leading elder care agency in Southern California located right here in the San Gabriel Valley, they don’t have to!
That’s because at A-1 Home Care, we provide caregiving professionals who have helping hands and a golden heart and are ready to serve elders from all walks of life, including Jewish, Middle Eastern, Asian, and European, at the most affordable prices available anywhere.

Below are 3 great holiday season tips that elders can incorporate into their lifestyle for greater home health going forward:
1.      Service Your Car ASAP
Driving along wet and wintery roads can be especially dangerous for the older generation, so it’s a good idea to have your car checked for oil, tires, battery, and even windshield wipers now—rather than after it’s already too late!
2.      Prepare Against Power Shortages
Remember to have flashlights and warm clothes with you in case a storm hits and the power goes out. Also, remember to have a supply of non-perishable foods in your home to prepare against a longer power shortage, which can cause your perishable foods to go bad relatively quickly.
3.      Eat A Nutritional Diet
With the colder weather comes an increase in the amount of time you spend indoors—so load up on foods with Vitamin D (the nutrient that your body typically receives from sunlight) such as milk, grains, and salmon.
