The summer months can be especially difficult for seniors across Queensland, so why not check on your elderly neighbours over the festive season?
Hot conditions are particularly dangerous for anyone who is frail, explained communities minister Tracy Davis, but if everyone gets involved then the risks can be minimised.
"You can play your part by calling your elderly relative daily to check on them or inviting your neighbour over for a cool drink to ensure they are well hydrated," said Ms Davis.
No matter whether you're living in rental properties in Narangba or somewhere more permanent, elderly people are sure to enjoy the company and be assured that there's someone out there who cares.
Other strategies you might want to consider include keeping their homes well ventilated, as well as closing blinds and curtains to ensure the heat stays out.
Staying indoors during the hottest parts of the day is another good way to avoid the heat taking its toll, especially on those who find it difficult to look after themselves.
If you're yet to make the most of the strong community spirit this region has to offer, make sure you get in touch with a real estate agent in Burpengary.
