Every day, Ohio senior volunteers generously give their time and service to help others. Now here's a chance to give back by nominating a deserving older adult in the local community for his or her outstanding service through the Salute to Senior Service® program.
Sponsored by the Home Instead Senior Care network, Salute to Senior Service recognizes the contributions of adults age 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.
"Seniors have so much to give and make a positive impact on our communities daily," said Bill Mullenhour, owner of the Home Instead office serving Bowling Green, Findlay, Lima, Fremont and Celina. "Senior volunteerism not only benefits others, but also helps seniors stay active and socially engaged in their communities - important elements of healthy aging."

Older Ohioans at increased risk for complications from extreme cold PDF Print E-mail

COLUMBUS - The winter of 2014 has brought to Ohio colder temperatures and wind chills than we've seen in many years - and how a shortage of propane and natural gas.
The Ohio Department of Aging reminds all Ohioans that our bodies react differently to extreme conditions as we age. Among other factors, older adults are at higher risk from extreme cold because they tend to lose body heat more quickly and are more likely to take medications that affect their ability to regulate body temperature. As a result, they are at higher risk for complications from hypothermia, frostbite and other cold-weather illnesses and injuries.
When the mercury plunges, call or visit older friends, neighbors and loved ones to ensure they have what they need to stay warm and healthy. Things to check include:
• Are they staying warm? Is their heating system working properly and set at reasonable temperature? Are they using portable heaters safely? Do they have an adequate supply of fuel, if appropriate?

COLUMBUS - Weather forecasters have predicted a continuation of the frigid cold, ice and blowing snow that have been creating hazardous conditions on Ohio's roads and sidewalks.
STEADY U Ohio, the state's new older adult falls prevention initiative, reminds all Ohioans that there are simple steps they can take to protect themselves and their loved ones from slips, trips and falls that could lead to injury.
The most obvious threat for falls during the winter may be ice and snow. To stay safe:
• Wear boots and shoes that fit properly and have soles with bumps and grooves for good traction.
• Slow down. You may want to rush to get out of the conditions, but when you do, you are more likely to lose your balance.
• Make sure steps leading into your home have sturdy handrails that can support you if you slip.
•Watch for slippery surfaces ahead of you. Keep your head up and use your eyes to look down.
