Allergies are really bad this year!

Since I am having difficulties breathing and have to constantly wipe my eyes and blow my nose, I know that this bothersome condition affects some of my seniors as well, so I decided to look into the best ways to help a senior safely survive allergy season. I found a great site, http://www.agingcare.com/Articles/help-elders-survive-allergy-season-150138.htm and want to convey to you some of what they are suggesting.
The one thing I had already factored in but was mentioned on this site was the fact that while seniors do battle with allergies, they may very well be battling with other health complications as well. If they have been diagnosed with any type of chronic disease (or more than one), then it may just be that much more difficult for them to deal with their allergies!
Many times because of added complications, it is that much more difficult for a caregiver to know exactly what to do to help ease the discomfort of allergies because many over-the-counter (OTC) medications cannot possibly be used because they can interfere with prescription medication, either heightening the affects or nulling and voiding the meds altogether. Neither of these options are safe – or recommended!
Remember, as a caregiver, it is your responsibility to help your clients – and to always show them that you believe that With Age Comes Respect!
