Spring is in the air, and that means that pollen is too! There’s nothing more beautiful than sunny spring days and blooming flowers, but seasonal allergies can really put a damper on this delightful time of year. So, we thought we’d provide you with some tips to help you cope with your seasonal allergies this year, so that you can get outdoors and enjoy this great weather!
Seasonal allergies can be uncomfortable for anyone, but they can be especially troublesome for senior citizens with underlying health issues. Some allergy medicines are not healthy for seniors, and some should not be mixed with certain medications. So, if you notice that you’re suffering from seasonal allergies, and you have an underlying health condition, be sure to speak to your physician about the best solutions for you.
To help prevent allergens from entering your home, place a door mat at every entrance and remove your shoes when you come inside. Also, be sure to dust, sweep, and vacuum regularly. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, it’s also a good idea to change your home’s air filters every 30 days during this time of year.
After you spend time outdoors, be sure to change your clothes, wash your hands, and shower. This will help to remove any of the pollen that you may have brought in with you.
It’s spring, and we want you to enjoy this beautiful time of year. So be safe, and enjoy yourself!
