Cold & Flu Season Is Here

Cold and Flu Prevention Tips for Seniors and Caregivers

Cold and flu season is upon us again. In addition, Covid-19 will still be circulating. It's wise to take precautions because seniors and caregivers are two of the most likely groups of people to get sick.

Older adults have weaker immune systems and so do most caregivers (due to lack of sleep and chronic stress). And if you spend a lot of time together, you’re more likely to pass germs back and forth.

Even so, there’s still a lot that you can do to reduce the chances that you or your older adult will get sick and to reduce the length or severity of an illness. Basically, the goal is to boost the immune system and reduce exposure to germs.

In the coming days, we will share 10 tips for avoiding the flu and in case you or your older adult gets sick, we’ve got 6 tips that prevent serious flu complications and ease symptoms.
