COLUMBUS, Ohio - The heavy snows and extremely cold air mass which invaded Ohio during the past 10 days saw residents coping with sub-zero temperatures and extreme wind chill values across much of the state, according to the National Weather Service.
It's been a reminder that for a variety of reasons, older adults may have a harder time adjusting to extreme conditions. Older adults lose body heat more quickly and are more susceptible to hypothermia.
The Ohio Department of Aging encourages all Ohioans to check in on older loved ones and neighbors during cold temperatures and snowstorms this winter to ensure that they have the resources they need to stay safe and healthy.

With dangerously cold temperatures in the forecast, now is the time for seniors and their loved ones to brush up on cold weather safety tips.
"Winter can be a difficult time, as the harsh conditions especially impact seniors," said Jeff Huber, president of Home Instead Senior Care. "We want to make sure seniors and their loved ones are aware of simple ways they can stay safe and warm throughout the season."
Those over the age of 65 account for nearly half of all hypothermia deaths. As the body ages, the ability to maintain a normal internal body temperature decreases, creating an insensitivity to moderately cold temperatures. Seniors may not realize they are putting themselves at risk until symptoms appear. Symptoms of hypothermia include: shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech and drowsiness. If symptoms are present, immediate medical attention is necessary.
