Cataract After-Surgery Care in Anaheim Hills

a-1 home care Testimonial

a-1 home care Testimonial

What are cataracts?

A cataract is defined as “a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision,” according to the National Eye Institute (NEI).  This disease of the eye is common among the elderly over age 80 and it can affect one or both eyes.  Cataracts produces blurry vision in the eyes and usually requires surgery for correction.

When do cataracts develop?

Early signs of cataracts start to show in middle-aged adults in their 40s or 50s, but they don’t really feel the serious effects until they’re in their 60s.  Although cataracts is usually associated with the elderly, other types of non-age-related cataracts can also develop from trauma, radiation, steroids, diabetes, glaucoma, and genetic factors.

How does cataract surgery help? 

This outpatient surgical procedure replaces your eye lens with an artificial lens.  It is a very common procedure which does not require hospital stay after the surgery.  Surgery after-care is extremely important in taking care of your eyes, and many surgeons won’t allow you to leave the hospital unless you have some post-operative support when you get home, including transportation to and from the surgery site.

Cataract Care after Surgery

A-1 Home Care provides pick-up and drop-off services for surgery patients as well as 24-hour care immediately following the operation.  We team up with local surgery centers like Lasik Vision Institute, NVISION Laser Eye Centers, and Lasik Anaheim Hills to provide you with optimal post-surgery eye care.  Timely medication management, wound care, transportation to aftercare appointments, meal preparation, and assistance with house chores are all part of the post-operative care.  A-1 Home Care is here for you as long as you need us, whether it be a week or a month after your operation date.  Having a caregiver present is really important, especially if unforeseen emergencies pop up like a fever or persistent, increasing pain.

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.

Anaheim Hills ALS In-Home Health Care

 

a-1 home care anaheim hills caregivers

a-1 home care anaheim hills caregivers

Lou Gherig’s Disease, otherwise known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), affects an individual’s ability to voluntarily control his muscles.  This motorneurone disease starts with the degeneration of motor neurons within the brain and spinal cord due to malnutrition.  When muscles receive insufficient nourishment, that region starts to deteriorate and “harden” (sclerosis).  Early symptoms of ALS include dyspnea (difficulty with breathing), dysphagia (difficulty with swallowing), and dysarthria (difficulty with speech).  In the late stages of Lou Gherig’s Disease, the atrophy of muscles is so far advanced that the individual loses total control over the voluntary movement of his muscles and becomes completely paralyzed.

Although there is no known cure for Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the affected individual can obtain care from family and friends who gain as much knowledge as possible about ALS.  As the in-home health care trend becomes more widespread, seniors are opting to stay at home to receive in-home health care in the comfort of their home environment.  A-1 Home Care provides specialized non-medical care for individuals with ALS.  Our in-home health companions, hospital sitters, home health aides, and caregivers are professionally trained and knowledgeable about the disease so that family members do not have to worry about their loved ones.

Allow us at A-1 Home Care to provide personal round-the-clock care, live-out or live-in care, so that you can put your mind at ease.  A-1 Home Care serves the communities of Orange County in Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Fullerton, Orange, Anaheim, Corona, Tustin, Santa Ana, and surrounding cities.

a-1 home care california non medical

Good nutrition habits and knowledge for Elderly and Senior individuals is of vital importance for reaping the various health benefits of food.

Check out this article that gives some suggestions for summertime foods and snacks that have more health benefits than you may have known.  Among the types of food mentioned are watermelon, iceberg lettuce, party dip, popcorn, and spices.  Some Elders and Seniors may have difficulty enjoying their food without sauces, and spices are a great alternative to enhancing the flavor of food in addition to having health benefits.
