CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Cape Girardeau senior center is taking steps to protect our senior population in this intense heat.

They offer lunch and ways to socialize during the day.

And for those who are home bound, they brought them meals, which then gives center workers a chance to check on those seniors.

Workers also make sure the seniors air conditioning units are working properly, and remind them the importance of staying hydrated.
