Many of the elderly people suffer from anemia.

Anemia is a deficiency of red-blood cells in the body.

Anemia can make you feel cold, weak and fatigue, even in a temperment environment.

If you have ever stepped foot into an elderly persons’ home, you might notice that they keep it quite warm, even on hot summer days. This is because their internal body temperatures are low due to the anemia. It is important for elderly people to understand how to adjust the thermostat if they are home alone. Most of the time, an adult child of the elderly person is their sole caretaker. We all have busy schedules, and worrying about the temperature inside our loved ones home is not always at the top of the priority list. With today’s technology, smart thermostats are an option. This investment could potentially save you from many headaches and drives across town. With a smart thermostat, you are able to control the HVAC from your smartphone. This is very useful for the primary caretakers of the elderly. Another benefit of the smart thermostat is reduced energy costs. Constantly running the heater can cause a tremendous spike in the electric bill. As people age, they do not have the best memory. Even if the elderly person using the heating system in their home is too hot, they might not remember how to turn it down. This puts them at risk of being too hot and falling ill. A smart thermostat could prevent all of this from happening, as you would have access to the heating and cooling system available at your fingertips from virtually anywhere on earth.
