Doctors Warn Seniors About the Potential Dangers of the Winter Season

Temperatures have been all over the place this month, and that can cause some major set backs for seniors and their health. MidMichigan Medical Center Alpena is offering some tips for the older generation to make sure they stay safe during cold times.

Winter season can be very harsh, but it can also be even harder for seniors. Northeast Michigan is the home to majority seniors.

With icy conditions, and unexpected snow falls seniors are advised to stay indoors as much as possible. So far in 2018 one illness seems to be the worse especially when it comes this season.

Just because there are some snowflakes outside, doesn’t mean activities should stop. Seniors can find unique ways of staying busy with reading, puzzles, and exercise while in the comfort of their home. If you need a lift, they are there to make sure you get to where you’re going and returning.
