Extreme Heat

Check on older neighbors, friends and family members to make sure they stay cool this summer. Air conditioning is the strongest protective factor against heat-related illnesses. Exposure to air conditioning for even a few hours a day will reduce your risk.  Find a cooling center near year or visit one of our 19 senior centers in St. Louis, St. Charles, Franklin or Jefferson county.  The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is a great resource, here is a great heat related page.  Report senior or adults with disabilities suffering from the heat and needing assistance by calling the Adult Abuse and Neglect hotline at 1-800-392-0210.
