At Mountain Plaza Assisted Living, we are passionate about helping seniors thrive in our community. With winter fast approaching, it’s important for our residents to stay mindful of the winter weather elements and dress appropriately.
To help our residents remain safe and comfortable this season, we suggest the following mindful winter weather tips:
- Wear layers – When the temperature drops, layering your clothing can be a beneficial way to stay warm and cozy. Our top recommendation for layering is to start with a thin base layer of moisture-wicking material, followed by a thicker insulating layer and then a waterproof outer layer. This combination will help keep you warm and dry in any weather.
- Wear moisture-wicking socks – Since your feet are constantly exposed to the cold, it’s important to wear socks that will keep your feet warm and dry. We recommend choosing socks made out of moisture-wicking materials that will wick away moisture and keep your feet insulated.
- Wear winter gloves – Your hands are one of the first things to get cold and uncomfortable in winter. Investing in a good-quality pair of winter gloves can make all the difference when you need to brave the elements. Choose waterproof, insulated gloves so you can make the most out of your outdoor winter activities.
- Wear hat and scarf – Your head is one of the quickest parts to get cold in a winter chill. Protect it by wearing a warm hat and scarf to not only keep your head warm but also keep your neck and ears nice and toasty.
- Wear waterproof shoes – The snow can be fun to play in, and getting outside can be a great way to enjoy fresh air and some Vitamin D. But when you’re out and about in the snow, it’s important to wear moisture-wicking, breathable, waterproof shoes. This will help keep your feet dry and warm while you take a winter walk.
By following these winter weather tips, residents at Mountain Plaza Assisted Living in Casper WY can stay safe and comfortable even when the temperatures outside drop. We hope that our residents can take advantage of the fresh air, exercise, and Vitamin D that comes with spending time outdoors this winter season.
