BALTIMORE - The heat is back on and so is the risk for heat exhaustion for older adults. Dr. Alicia Arbaje from Johns Hopkins was a guest on Good Morning Maryland at 9:00. She says the elderly can't feel the heat or cool down as easily as younger adults can and are less likely to feel thirsty even when they are almost dehydrated. She also advised that 90 degrees is already too hot for many older adults and it’s a good idea if you don’t have air-conditioning to visit a cooling center, a grocery store, mall, or senior center.
