When an Elderly Loved One’s Wish for Privacy Puts You in an Awkward Position

????????????????????????????????????????When an elderly loved one divulged an important health fact to you and has sworn you to secrecy, that creates a lot of awkwardness between you and other family members who could show support when your loved one really needs it, especially if it’s cancer or a terminal illness.  Why would family members keep their cancer diagnosis on a “hush-hush” basis?

  • They haven’t made sense of it themselves
  • Different generational and cultural values (i.e., cancer carries some sort of stigma with it, and they don’t want people talking and whispering about them)
  • They don’t want other family members to worry
  • They don’t want to announce it during a time of happiness (i.e., a mother doesn’t want to tell her daughter who’s about to get married in a month)

 

Get Self-Care While You Get Cancer Care for Your Loved One

Now that your loved one has entrusted you with a secret, you truly feel alone because you are bound to confidentiality.  There’s still hope, however.  You can confide in a 24-hour caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills and not worry that the secret is going to leak out.  Physicians and health care professionals are all bound by the HIPAA law, which means they cannot share any patient information with anyone, especially if the patient specifically requested confidentiality.  You can hire a private live-in caregiver to take care of your mom and assist with basic tasks like cooking, cleaning, light housekeeping, bathing, grooming, and personal care.  If your elderly loved one asks, she doesn’t have to know that you hired a caregiver because she has cancer; you can just say you got someone to help out around the house.  A-1 Home Care will provide the in-home care support you need during this difficult time.

Hip Replacement Hourly Care At-Home

a-1 home care elder care palos verdes

Hip replacement surgery, or arthroplasty, is a procedure that includes intensive surgery to replace the diseased parts of the hip with new, artificial parts. This type of surgery has come a long way; new technology has made artificial parts able to withstand more stress and thus, last longer. In the past, doctors reserved hip replacement surgery for people over the age of 60. However, it’s not just the elderly in need, as many adults are now receiving this type of surgery. New research suggests that a person’s overall health and activity level are more important than age as a factor for the surgery’s success. People who suffer from osteoarthritis are more likely to need a hip replacement surgery if the disorder results in hip joint damage. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteonecrosis, fractures and other injuries can also lead to the hip bone becoming deteriorated, and in-need of a hip replacement surgery.

After your hip replacement surgery, you may experience moderate to severe pain. With the proper drugs administered by your care-provider, and with time, this pain should gradually decrease. Most patients remain in the hospital for about a week after the surgery, and they will have to utilize crutches or a walker as a start to rehabilitation. However, some people may need more intensive rehabilitation; there are special centers for this kind of care.

If a friend or a loved one is unable to care for you after your surgery, know that you don’t have to go through recovery alone. Our caregivers at A-1 Home Care can provide 24 hour care while you recuperate. We offer live-in care, so you can heal in the comfort of your own home

For many people who’ve had hip replacement surgery, it’s a much-needed relief from the constant pain they’ve been suffering from. The hip replacement brings along many benefits, such as a decrease in pain, increased mobility, and an overall improvement in quality of life.

Let us at A-1 Home Care help you get back on your feet.

Our care services are available in Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Fullerton, Villa Park, La Palma, Placentia, City of Orange, and Orange County. For more information, please contact us at (714) 523-4010 OR visit us at www.a-1homecare.com.
