Be heat safe this summer
The heat impacts us all, especially during heatwaves. We know there are special considerations for children, but did you know there are also special considerations for adults?
Join us to explore the impact of heat and heatwaves on older persons. We will provide practical strategies you can use to prevent heatstroke and manage heat-related issues.

Topics will include
- Dangers of heat for an older person;
- Practical strategies to manage the heat and support an older person;
- Signs of heat stress;
- What to do in an emergency.
