While summer doesn't officially start till June 20th, the May long weekend or shortly after, for many is the official kick-off of many summertime activities. That means hotter and sunnier days are on their way.

From gardening and casual strolls to shopping and running errands, getting outside can do wonders for seniors regardless of ailments or abilities. There is no substitute in the benefits that seniors can get from getting a moderate dose of sunshine. Getting outside for a few rays of the good stuff can freshen up your mind, provide an escape from stress and provide you with a mood boost. In addition, exposure to sunshine can help you get a better night's sleep and provide you with much-needed vitamin D.


However, too much outdoor time or not taking the proper precautions protecting yourself from the sun can lead to dehydration, sunburn, sunstroke and other health-related issues.


Here are 7 sun safety tips for seniors:

  1. Seek advice from your healthcare team. Discuss the balance between enjoying the sunny outdoors and keeping safe. Implement a strategy and follow the strategy.

  2. Slip-on lightweight-breathable clothing and definitely consider long sleeves.

  3. Slop on some sunscreen.

  4. Slap on a hat

  5. Seek shade

  6. Slide on sunglasses

In addition to these 6 sun safety tips, we would like to emphasize the importance of keeping water on hand to keep hydrated and to limit your sunshine based on the recommendations of your healthcare team.
