Nine Tips for Senior’s Caregivers to Battle Allergies

June is an exciting time of year!  Winter boots have been swapped for sandals and flip-flops, the weather is at its best with trees, gardens and flowers in full bloom.  Unfortunately, if you’re one of the many people who have seasonal allergies, this is a season where your nosy many be running, your eyes itching, and you’re sneezing non-stop!  Allergies can be a pain, especially when you’re working with vulnerable seniors who may be alarmed by your cold-like symptoms and catching them as well.  Here are some tips for keeping your allergies under control.

  1. Use the air conditioning instead of keeping window open all day and night.
  2. Keep indoor air dry with a dehumidifier
  3. Clean floors often with a vacuum
  4. Avoid outdoor activity early in the morning, when pollen counts are highest
  5. Start taking allergy medications as soon as your symptoms are coming on
  6. Take off your shoes and change your clothes when you get home in the evenings to avoid tracking pollen throughout your home
  7. Take a shower before you go to bed to rinse pollen out of your hair
  8. Consider going to your doctor to get tested for allergies
  9. Try natural remedies, such as neti pot.  Studies show that neti pots are effective for minimizing seasonal allergy symptoms
