Seniors can lose body heat faster than when they were young. Changes in body that come with aging can make it harder for seniors to be aware of getting cold. A big chill can turn into a dangerous problem before a senior even knows what’s happening.

Here are some tips for keeping warm at your home:

* Set your heat to 68-70 F. Close off rooms you are not using, keep the basement door closed. Place a rolled towel in front of basement doors to keep out draft. Keep your blinds closed.

* Dress warmly in layers. Wear socks and slippers. Throw a blanket over your legs.

*When you go to sleep, wear long underwear under your pajamas. Wear a cap or hat.

* Eat enough food to keep up your weight. Body fat helps you to stay warm.

* Minimize drinking alcohol. Alcohol drinks can make you lose body heat.

*Ask family or friends to check on you during cold weather.
