Air Quality Tips for Caregivers

July 7, 2015

Our staff at CanadianNanny were just discussing how our cars are covered in soot and one of our Customer Service staff has some very sore looking eyes. As most of us know, there is a blanket of smoke from the prairies to the very West coast of BC.

We worry the most for the seniors and children with the air quality. The smallest particles within the smoke make up the unhealthiest material. These are the ones that go deeper into the lungs. Small particles trigger coughing and make it harder to breathe.

Here are some quick tips our team has researched to help:

  • Stay inside as much as possible.
  • Don’t smoke, or use gas stoves or even light candles.
  • Try not to fry or broil foods inside
  • Drink lots of water
  • Be alert to Public Service Announcements.
  • What makes things tougher for our nannies is most areas have water bans on. So kids running through sprinklers is not a possibility. Take the kids to indoor pools and splash pads.
