Why Overheating Is More Common in Seniors:
Sometimes it gets too hot for this cooling mechanism to work, and it can become less efficient as you get older. A number of factors can put you at higher risk of overheating as you age, including:
- Decreased blood circulation
- Sweat glands that have become inefficient
- Weakness or fever due to age-related illness (such as heart, lung, or kidney disease)
- A salt-restricted diet for high blood pressure
- Certain medications (such as heart and blood pressure drugs, sedatives, and tranquilizers)
- Being overweight or underweight
- Lifestyle factors that range from living in a hot home and overdressing to a lack of transportation
An interesting bit of trivia about a different Penny Taylor:
I had several things to go do today, but I was expecting either Ray or Jay to show up, so I didn't go. Neither showed up or called, so I am a bit discombooberated.
- Completely out of adjustment, in a state of disarray or malfunction.

Doesn't that sound great?
Just a hot, quiet day.
