Disease Dilemma: Why Living With Someone Who Has Diabetes Could Raise Your Risk For Getting It

When it comes to diabetes– a blood disorder most often caused by high glucose levels or too much sugar in the bloodstream over an extended period of time– could simply being around people who have it put you at greater risk for incurring it, too?

According to one recent study reported to the American Diabetes Association, spouses or live-in care providers of people with diabetes were two times more likely to get the blood disease themselves by the following year. In fact, just being in the same home with someone who has diabetes shows a higher risk connection that is by no means negligible– regardless of whether or not both people have similar blood lines, the study found.

But at A-1 Home Care, seniors with diabetes don’t need to worry about not receiving the care they need, as our expert diabetic caregivers are selfless for their sake. They can provide lasting senior care services to diabetics that include:

  • medication reminders
  • creation and preparation of nutritional meals
  • transportation to and from doctor’s appointments and other engagements
  • light cleaning around the house
  • gardening/yardwork
  • personal care and bathing aid

Even if you’re a senior who doesn’t have diabetes currently or you have an elderly family member who’s at risk for things like pre-diabetes, it’s important to note that the proper preparation for fighting back against diabetes should begin before someone has it– not shortly thereafter. While family history is considered one of the biggest factors for diabetes, this study has placed an emphasis on the environmental effects that can potentially trigger the disease as well, so it’s important to do all that you can now to prepare against it.

If A-1 Home Care’s leading diabetic care solutions is something you or a loved one may benefit from, then call (949) 650-3800 or (562) 929-8400 today. Proudly serving the Los Angeles and Orange County areas, A-1 Home Care extends its services to cities like Garden Grove, Alta Dena, Fountain Valley, Irvine, and Calabasas.

Aged and Dignified – A-1 Home Care Respects Seniors

According to a study done by the UN in 2009, there is an estimated 455,000 centenarians in the world. A centenarian is a person who has reached the ripe old age of 100. Amazing! As the world ages and we discover more important knowledge on diseases, plants, the universe, etc. we increase the life expectancy for the seniors now and seniors to come.

As an elderly care agency, A-1 Home Care believes that old age deserves respect and recognition. Our Senior and Elderly caregivers hold the same beliefs and that’s why we’ve been given such rave reviews and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. We like to showcase the beauty of age and so we present some photographs of some beautiful centenarians taken by German photographer Karsten Thormaehlen.

Anaheim Hills After-Surgery Care

a-1 home care Are you anticipating surgery with overwhelming anxiety?  Is this your first time going through an operation?  Stress can cause you to miss important information and advice from doctors who are trying to prepare you for the big day.  The good news is, with the advent of modern technology, more and more procedures are outpatient surgeries and it usually takes less than 24 hours to complete the operation. Instead of worrying about whether the procedure will be successful, more patients wonder what life will be like after the surgery.

Why After-Surgery Care?

    • Reduce scarring related to plastic surgery procedures
    • Maximize rest time to optimize recovery time
    • Physical limitations after surgery require outside help to prevent unnecessary injuries
    • Certain types of operations, such as eye surgery, require critical post-surgery care
    • Reduce anxiety and stress with the presence of a compassionate, knowledgeable caregiver

What to Expect from After-Surgery Care

  • Pick-up/drop-off transportation services: If you need a ride to the site of operation, our caregivers will take you there and pick you up after surgery so you can make it home safely.
  • Pick up prescriptions: Your personal assistant can run to the pharmacy and pick up any prescriptions you need.
  • Run errands: If you need to stock up on groceries or need help with light housecleaning, laundry and meal preparations, we are here for you! After-surgery care also includes personal care, such as bathing, grooming and oral hygiene.
  • Companionship: Having good company around helps make the recovery time a smooth transition. Let our warm caregivers take your mind off anything that may weigh you down emotionally.

No matter what type of surgery you’ve had, A-1 Home Care provides temporary and permanent post-surgery care for your needs.  We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week!

Call (714) 523-4010 today or visit our website www.anaheimhillsinhomecare.com to find out more about post-surgery care.  We proudly serve the communities of Anaheim Hills, Brea, Yorba Linda, Corona Del Mar, Placentia, Villa Park, Fullerton, La Palma, and all throughout Orange County.

Anaheim Hills Heart Attack Care

????????????????????????????????????????Heart attacks and Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) are normally associated with seniors, but according to a recent article in Harvard Health Publications (2009), about 10% of heart attacks occur in men as young as 45. Lifestyle habits play a huge influencing role in the occurrence of heart attacks. Smoking half a pack of cigarettes a day increases the chances of heart attack by 50%. An “age”-old problem is becoming a “pediatric” problem, as evidenced by the examination of over 700 deceased teens and young adults in a research study just last year.

As myocardial infarction becomes more common, it’s important to know the symptoms if you are having a heart attack. Look for signs of shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, dizziness, discomfort in other areas of your upper body, and cold sweat. These symptoms persist for more than 30 minutes. After your first heart attack, repeat heart attacks are likely to occur if you don’t change your diet or lifestyle habits.

Life after a heart attack can be made easier with a companion by your side. No doubt, lifestyle habits are hard to break if you are trying to recover from a heart attack, especially after hospitalization. Home care agencies such as A-1 Home Care offer help with daily chores, transportation and personal care. They can be a great team player if you have a medical team of doctors and nurses who are helping you in your cardiac rehabilitation.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Examine all the options you have now by calling (714) 523-4010 or visit http://www.anaheimhillsinhomecare.com for exceptional heart attack care. A-1 Home Care serves Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Newport Beach, Villa Park, Costa Mesa and other cities throughout Orange County.

Arthritis Care in Anaheim Hills

a-1 home careWhat do soda, coffee and tea have in common?  These beverages all have tannic acid, a certain type of chemical that is harmful for the joints.  Although recognized as “safe” by the Food and Drug Administration, the widespread use of tannin acid in drinks has caused a myriad of health problems gone undetected in their connection to popular beverage consumption.  Among these health problems are heart burn, indigestion, ulcers, cancer, intestinal damage, and arthritis.  Studies show that high consumption of tannic acid decreases bone density and interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium.  This leads to arthritis, an inflammatory disease of the joints.  Symptoms include insomnia, muscular aches and pain (especially during movement), disfigured hands and feet, weight loss, and fatigue.

Due to pain during movement, most people who suffer from arthritis are reluctant to exercise, yet physical exercise is the very thing that can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis.  Caregivers, home health aides, and companions are helpful when it comes to executing the doctor’s orders for your loved ones.  They provide emotional support, motivation and physical assistance in the comfort of your own home if family members are away at work or carrying on with their own lives.

To learn more about the benefits of Arthritis Care, call A-1 Home Care (714) 523-4010 or visit our website www.anaheimhillsinhomecare.com for services in Anaheim Hills, Villa Park, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, and surrounding areas.
