Caregiver for Sun Exposure

Comments (0)

As caregiver, there are times when your cared one wants to go outside to get some sun and fresh air. Not only does the sun provide warmth but sun exposure aids the skin in producing vitamin D.

We found that low vitamin D levels were associated with an increased risk of having metabolic syndrome, and was also significantly associated with increased insulin resistance. Metabolic syndrome’s cluster of obesity, high blood sugar, high blood pressure and high cholesterol can lead to heart disease, stroke and diabetes*.

Getting an extra bit of sun per day could improve Vitamin D levels.

Sun Exposure Protection

However, older individuals are sensitive to ultraviolet rays and they should be protected. As an elderly caregiver or disabled caregiver, when you are taking care of someone out in the sun, they must protect not only their skin but also their eyes. With Moda sunglasses, you can get affordable deals on eye-wear and take care of your loved ones. Some elderly and disabled might not be able to communicate their overexposure to the sun, so it is important that the caregiver pay extra attention to the time outside. Make sure they wear a hat and long sleeved clothing. Apply sunscreen with a SPF of at least 15. These simple measures can improve the health of your cared one.
