Care of disables- a very crucial and challenging activity
Taking proper care of disabled people is really not that easy as they are completely dependent upon you for all their work, especially when we are taking about their care in the season of summer. Summer season is the one I which the people require lots of care so as to prevent themselves from various summer hazards such as dehydration, heat stroke, sunburn, food poisoning and so on.
If you are looking forward to take your disabled family member for some sort of outing or picnic then you must take care of the food items you are taking with you as in this season too many cases of food poisoning occur. This is because the warm weather helps the bacteria to contaminate your food and grow. Thus the cold food items should be kept a 40 degree or cold before providing it to the disabled people. Even the non-veg articles should be refrigerated before use. For this purpose use a cooler on your picnic.
Next major problem of summers is that of dehydration. As you know well that the disability care is your concern you should make very sure that you prevent your disabled dear ones from the problem of dehydration. In this basically the temperature of the body keeps on rising. To prevent this provide plenty of fluids to the disabled people for drinking, most commonly water, and also prevent them from the striking sun during the day time.
The most severe of all is the problem of heat stroke. In this the temperature of the body rises to such a level that even the body stops producing sweat and thus the body is unable to cool down. Such condition can even result in death of people. Within 10 to 15 minutes the body temperature can rise up to 106 degree. If such situation occurs with your disabled family member then try to cool their body by spraying cool water, sponging the body with cool showers and so on. To prevent this appropriate amount of water and fluid should be provided to them on regular basis and also it should be made clear that they do not remain in sun for long time. Along with all the mentioned precautions, consult a doctor and take them for regular health check-ups so that their health in summers is not compromised at any level.
