3 Ways to Keep Seniors Safe This Winter

1. Keep Winter Supplies on Hand

One easy way to protect your elderly loved one from winter dangers is to keep winter supplies on hand in both his or her vehicle and home. With items like thick socks, gloves, and blankets around, in the case of a power outage or car breakdown, your senior loved one will have what he or she needs to bundle up and avoid the cold until power is restored or help arrives. When putting together a cold weather kit, be sure to include a battery-powered flashlight, canned and dry foods, and bottled water as well.

2. Hire Snow Removal Services

Shoveling snow can be dangerous for seniors, particularly when it sleets, increasing the risk of back injury, pulled muscles, and slipping. Make sure your elderly loved one never injures his or herself clearing snow by hiring a neighborhood teenager to shovel your relative’s place or by hiring a professional snow removal services to come each time there is a new snow.

3. Avoid Alcohol

Though popular winter drinks, like mulled wine, hot toddys, and Irish coffees, are alcoholic, drinking these types of beverages can actually put seniors at an increased risk for cold damage to their extremities. Drinking alcohol reduces the blood circulating to the extremities and makes it harder to recognize discomfort in those areas. If your loved one is outdoors for extended periods, he or she may not notice the beginning symptoms of cold damage and frost bite.

RICKETS is a nutritional condition /disorder caused by a deficiency in vitamin D, calcium and phosphate resulting to poor bone growth and development, softening, pain and deformity and in severe cases fractures.
Make sure you eat vitamin D rich foods such as Salmon (especially wild-caught)
Mackerel (especially wild-caught; eat up to 12 ounces a week of a variety of fish and shellfish that are low in mercury)
Mushrooms exposed to ultraviolet light to increase vitamin D
Other food sources of vitamin D include:
Cod liver oil (warning: cod liver oil is rich in vitamin A; too much may be bad for you)
Tuna canned in water
Sardines canned in oil
Milk or yogurt -- regardless of whether it's whole, nonfat, or reduced fat -- fortified with vitamin D
Beef or calf liver
Egg yolks

De Blasio Voices Support For HUD Smoking Ban

The federal government is seeking to ban smoking in all of the nation’s 1.2 million public housing units. the latest step in a decades-long crackdown on tobacco products that help kill hundreds of thousands of Americans each year.

POLITICO New York reported that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio voiced his support for the HUD #smoking  Ban proposal, saying, “The goal is a good one,” but added “we’ve gotta figure out how to make it work on the ground.”

And even if an enforcement procedure would be initialized, how will they be able to detect what apartment the tobacco smoke would be coming from? 

The New York Post questions any enforcement of such a ban, saying that the measure would not be effective unless housing authorities are willing to evict their tenants.
