WARM WEATHER ALERT FOR ELDER RESIDENTS
The Rockport Police Department and the Rockport Council On Aging are asking residents to check in on their elderly family members, friends, and neighbors throughout the warm summer months.
Residents should pay extra attention to homes that are exceptionally hot and to warning signs of dehydration, heat stroke and exhaustion, which includes lack of energy, nausea and high body temperature.
The Rockport Council On Aging will also be welcoming seniors to the town’s air-conditioned Senior Center in the Community House at 58 Broadway.
Any resident concerned about an elder may contact the police at 978-546-1212 or the Council on Aging at 978-546-2573.
