Stay Fresh and Refreshed This Summer

Summer in Hendersonville, Tennessee, brings warm sunshine and beautiful outdoor opportunities. At Park Place Retirement, we are dedicated to ensuring our residents stay fresh, refreshed, and comfortable during the hotter months. Here are some practical tips to help our seniors enjoy a vibrant and healthy Summer.

Stay Hydrated
Proper hydration is crucial during the summer. Seniors are advised to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Consider adding a slice of lemon or cucumber for a refreshing twist. Herbal teas and fruit-infused waters are also excellent choices to keep hydration levels up.

Dress for the Weather
Wearing light-colored, loose-fitting clothing made from breathable fabrics like cotton can help keep you cool. Don’t forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when stepping outside to protect yourself from the sun’s rays.

Enjoy Cool, Balanced Meals
Opt for lighter meals that are easy to digest, such as salads, fresh fruits, and grilled vegetables. Incorporating seasonal produce not only keeps your meals nutritious but also adds delightful flavors. Our dining team at Park Place Retirement offers a variety of summer-friendly dishes that are both delicious and healthful.

Stay Active, Stay Cool
Engage in light physical activities during the cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or late evening. Walking, gardening, or water aerobics are great options. Our community offers various fitness programs tailored to keep you active without overheating.

Create a Cool Living Space
Ensure your living space remains cool by using fans or air conditioning. Close curtains or blinds during the hottest part of the day to block out the sun. Consider using light-colored bed linens and keeping your space clutter-free to enhance airflow.

Take Advantage of Indoor Activities
When the heat becomes too intense, enjoy indoor activities such as reading, crafting, or joining social groups. Park Place Retirement offers a variety of indoor programs and events to keep our residents engaged and entertained throughout the summer.

Use Sun Protection
Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 before going outside, even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hours, especially if you are sweating or swimming. Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is essential to prevent sunburn and reduce the risk of skin cancer.

Practice Mindful Relaxation
Stress can add to the feeling of heat and discomfort. Engage in relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, or gentle yoga. Our wellness programs include various options to help you stay calm and centered during the summer months.
