The Ouachita Council on Aging gives tips on keeping cool and resources for seniors.
Temperatures have been climbing as the summer progresses. Heat indexes have risen over 100 degrees. Rising temperatures have turned into rising concerns for local senior citizens.
Linda McGehee, Senior Director of the aging council, says it's important for seniors to understand how their bodies work and keep hydrated to combat high temperatures.
"What we're concerned about is that seniors know that they need to hydrate themselves a lot more than usual," McGehee says.
