BROOKLYN, N.Y., Dec. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The most wonderful season of all can also be the most dangerous. Winter weather conditions and power outages can cause major problems in the northern part of the United States. New York City can be unforgiving. Luckily, by taking the right precautions you can remain safe this season. All Heart Homecare Agency, a Brooklyn home health care provider, has offered up some tips to keep safe during New York's coldest season.
Dress properly - Dressing properly during the winter seasons is very important. Wear layers and ensure that you cover your extremities. A pair of gloves and a hat is essential to withstanding the NYC chill. Proper footwear is essential to prevent slips on ice.
Exercise Regularly - Elderly individuals have a smaller chance of slipping on snow or ice if their muscles are strong.
Stock Your Pantry - While home health aides can ensure you are on the right track with services such as nutritional counseling and helping with day-to-day activities, it is always important to ensure you have enough food to withstand a prolonged power outage or storm.
Prepare Your Vehicle - Firstly, ensure you have snow tires on your car. Pay extra close attention while driving, and don't voyage out during a snowstorm unless it is an absolute emergency. Keep warm clothing, blankets, hand warmers, and some food in your vehicle in the case that you get stuck in a storm or break down.
Stay Positive - These winter months come with short days. Lack of sunlight may keep some people down at times. Ensuring you remain optimistic will help you through the winter months and have you blooming and ready for spring!
All Heart Homecare Agency Inc. urges people to take these tips seriously and to prepare their vehicles, cars, and homes for the winter months. The Brooklyn home health care provider will operate throughout the winter and provide those in need with services, such as: home health aides, visiting nurses, nutritional counseling, social work, personal care, and more to meet specific needs of clients.
