Visiting Angels’ back yard view in Lawrenceville, New Jersey

Yesterday’s snowfall in New Jersey created a winter wonderland at our Lawrenceville office! While the snow is beautiful, it does pose hazards for seniors, in particular. Falling is a big concern for older people in the snow.

If your loved one must go out in the snow, have them take precautions: use a walker or another person to steady themselves upon and wear protective hip gear. Shoveling snow is another snow-related activity seniors should avoid.

Shoveling snow and lifting snow places stress on the heart and increases the risk of a heart attack.
