CDC Releases Guidance on Helping Older Adults, People Living with Dementia Safe During Cold and Icy Weather

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have updated a webpage on helping older adults and people living with dementia stay safe during cold weather. The guidance and resources focus on preventing hypothermia and falls, accessing home weatherization, and accessing energy assistance.

The webpage could be useful for any community, especially those working to become more age- and dementia friendly, to ensure residents are aware of how to support older adults during colder months.
