Elderly Particularly Vulnerable in Heat, People Praying Old A/Cs Hold Up
DAYTON -- It's tough enough for young people to weather through this heat wave. Those with limited access to air conditioning, as well as the elderly, are particularly vulnerable to the recent high temperatures the Dayton area has been feeling.
Debbie Shriverdecker relies on a used A/C unit that was given to her three years ago.
"It's just on its last leg, but that's OK. Like I said it cools off the living room ... we have to pile up [there] at night to sleep because it is so hot," said Shriverdecker.
She explained that she cannot afford for it to break, especially this week with the humidity and temperatures reaching into the 90s.
"You take what you can get when you're on a fixed income," said Shriverdecker. "I'm not complaining. It does get us through it. Without it, we'd be a mess, it'd be awful."
These high temperatures are especially hard on the elderly.
Betty, a 93-year-old resident at the Lavender Home Care Solutions, is staying put there in the A/C. Betty says that she and her family likes to "go out to dinner and out to the movies," but not on hot weeks like this one.
Caregivers at Lavender Homes say that checking in on their elderly clients is essential.
"You have to really care to call and say, 'You know, have you been drinking your water today? How are you feeling today? You know, it's hot make sure you stay inside, keep the air conditioning on,' just that little check up like you would do for your Mom and Dad," said Bernard Dalichau, who owns and operates Lavender.
