Diabetes In-Home Care: Live Longer with Less Disabilities

a-1 home careIn observation of aging trends, researchers warn against obesity and other lifestyle choices that put seniors at risk for Diabetes, which is becoming increasingly common in the United States.  Currently there are over 21 million seniors with diabetes, and the number of new cases for Type 2 Diabetes has more than doubled over the last two decades, based on statistics from a national report.  Since Type 2 Diabetes is largely affected by lifestyle choices and is very preventable, it would bode well for families to invest in 24-hour in-home care for their elderly loved ones if family members think their loved ones need a little extra push.  A-1 Home Care offers affordable live-in diabetes care in Anaheim with flexible scheduling, and it includes assistance with meal preparation, cleaning, chores, errands, toileting care, companion care, and more.

Smokers, 45% Higher Risk than Non-Smokers for Alzheimer’s Disease

Happy-at-100-Karsten-Thormaehlen-5Family history, genetics, hypertension, head trauma, age and gender are natural risk factors for Alzheimer’s and dementia, but smokers have a 45% higher chance of developing Alzheimer’s than their non-smoking counterparts, according to a report published by the World Health Organization (WHO).  Smoking hardens your arteries and robs your brain cells of oxygen and vital nutrients, not to mention increasing the risk for stroke, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease and other types of dementia.  The good news is that you can probably reverse or stop the effects of smoking if you kick the habit before age 40.  When it comes to caring for an elderly loved one with Alzheimer’s at home, A-1 Home Care offers customized, high quality 24-hour care for seniors and their families in Anaheim and other parts of Orange County.

24-Hour Alzheimer’s Care Tailored Just for You

Regardless of the stage that your elderly loved one is in, care managers at A-1 Home Care in Anaheim will discuss your loved one’s needs and develop an elder care plan based on your budget, level of care, and availability.  In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, family members can pitch in and help with errands like grocery shopping, prescription pick-ups and transportation, but as the disease progresses, they will need help from professional in-home caregivers to assist with bathing, dressing, toileting care, lifting and transferring their loved ones in and out of bed.  To reduce the risk of your elderly loved one wandering out of the house while you’re asleep, A-1 Home Care provides 8-hour and 12-hour overnight care so you can sleep peacefully.

A-1 Home Care, the Trusted Name in Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

A-1 Home Care is a licensed, bonded and insured agency that has been delivering exceptional senior care services since 1991.  We go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to meeting the needs of seniors in our communities.  Families are pleased with our caregivers’ outstanding service, which is why they continually refer friends and relatives to A-1 Home Care in Anaheim.  You will always find a friendly live operator on the other end when you call our 24-hour hotline.  We believe in personable customer care, which means direct connection to a live human being from the beginning to end.  Our elder care and in-home care services are available to you at affordable rates.  Cost should not be an issue when it comes to taking care of your loved ones!

Anaheim Hills Arthritis Care: Minimize Joint Pain with Assistance from Caregivers

Asian NurseJoint inflammation occurs when two or more joints swell with excessive fluid at the point where they connect.  Symptoms such as pain, stiffness, or a joint that appears larger than normal are signs that your joints may be inflamed.  Many diseases and health conditions share this symptom in common – osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, infectious (septic) arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.  Among the elderly, osteoporosis is the leading cause of chronic disability for older adults over age 70, according to an online source.  Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) affects people of all ages, though women are three times more likely to get RA than men.  A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills helps seniors manage their arthritic symptoms with various therapy techniques in the comfort of their own home.

Day-to-Day Functions with Ease

Because moving one’s inflamed joints is so painful, arthritis makes day-to-day living very difficult for seniors.  They could hardly write or use a utensil to eat.  When they walk, they have to bend over to minimize the joint pain which may cause limping.  Mobility is severely limited; oftentimes rainy weather or certain activities like standing up from a seated position would aggravate the pain.  A-1 Home Care’s certified home health aides are trained in energy-conservation education, joint-protection education, and hot and cold therapies among other formal training.  In addition to helping your elderly loved ones alleviate joint pain, our round-the-clock caregivers will cook, clean, bathe, groom, and provide personal care for your loved ones 24 hours a day.  They will take your parents or grandparents anywhere in Anaheim Hills or beyond for medical appointments, dental appointments and prescription pick-ups.

24-Hour Arthritis Care You Can Count On

A-1 Home Care, a licensed, bonded and insured home care agency, has been taking care of seniors in Anaheim Hills, Garden Grove, Fountain Valley, Irvine, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Fullerton and other areas in Orange County for 25 years!  We meticulously pick our caregivers, certified home health aides, certified nurse aides and licensed vocational nurses to give you the best elder care at the most competitive prices in Southern California.  Because we are licensed, bonded and insured, you will not have to worry about any shady characters trying to cheat them for their own personal gain.  We are dedicated to 100% customer satisfaction 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Our care managers will work with your budget, needs and scheduling availability.

Anaheim Hills Home Care: Sustaining the Link between the Elderly & Their Doctors

a-1 home care breast cancer early detectionHow strong is your elderly loved one’s relationship with his or her primary care provider?  According to University of British Columbia research, patients with chronic conditions are more likely to maintain or improve their own health if they have an ongoing relationship with their primary healthcare (PHC) provider.  Common chronic conditions include Diabetes and Arthritis; if your elderly loved one has Alzheimer’s and Dementia, however, is she capable of sustaining that much needed rapport with her physician?  If you don’t live with your elderly parents, how can you be sure that they are receiving the regular care and attention they need from their doctors?  A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills provides 24 hour care for seniors who live alone or with family members who may need live-in assistance for their loved ones.

Caregivers play a crucial role in connecting their care recipients with their physicians.  Seniors with impaired cognition are unlikely to report accurate results of their health, and they need family members or in-home caregivers to give an account for their vital signs, progress, and potential problems.  A-1 Home Care has caregivers in Anaheim Hills and surrounding areas who will come to your elderly loved one’s home to check in, assist with household chores, make meals, give rides to medical and dental appointments, and be a delightful companion to ease senior loneliness.  You can also request caregivers to stay 24 hours a day to keep your loved ones safe from danger.

Managing senior care has never been easier.  With help from A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills, you can count on highly skilled caregivers, certified nurse aides, certified home health aides and licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) to provide excellent senior care.  You can choose language preference, as we have a large pool of caregivers from diverse cultural backgrounds, ranging from Cambodian, Filipino, Chinese, and Middle Eastern to Hispanic and African-American.  Rest assured that A-1 Home Care conducts an extensive criminal background check and thoroughly verifies all professional references before allowing a caregiver to enter your home.  A-1 Home Care is licensed, bonded and insured.

 

For more information, call A-1 Home Care today (949) 650-3800 or visit www.anaheimhillsinhomecare.com.  We have service locations all over Orange County, including Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Costa Mesa, and Fullerton
