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. Certain foods and vegetables can aid in lowering blood sugar or blood pressure levels, improving eye health, or fighting off chronic diseases that come with aging.  Nobody likes to eat a plain and repetitive meal, which is why exploring different types of food is of great importance, especially for Elders whose favorite time of day is breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

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.

At A-1 Home Care, we want to help your Elderly or Senior loved one gain all the benefits that come with eating healthy and nutritious meals.  From grocery shopping to meal preparation, our caregivers can help your loved one improve their health on a daily basis with freshly cooked meals so that your loved one doesn’t have to eat frozen foods and TV dinners that may be easy to prepare, but not so beneficial for health.

A-1 Home Care is a non-medical homecare agency that provides a variety of in-home care services for Elderly, Senior, and Terminally Ill individuals on a 24 Hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.  We specialize in care services such as Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Diabetic Care, Heart Attack Care, Lou Gehrig’s Disease Care, and more.

Incontinence Care for Elderly & Seniors

a-1 home care

Incontinence is a sensitive topic when it comes to caregivers and the incontinent individual.  It may be shameful and detrimental to the Elderly individual’s self-esteem, especially if they are still mentally aware. If you’ve cared for your loved one with incontinence, you know that it’s a job not suited for people with weak stomachs.  It’s common for family members to dread having to care for their incontinent loved one and it may cause tension in relationships.  A-1 Home Care understands this situation and provides compassionate and qualified caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who are experienced with Incontinence Care, whether it’s urinary or fecal.  To make matters easier for both parties, we’d suggest using incontinence aids such as waterproof bedding, absorbent undersheets for chairs, beds or couches, and incontinence pads or pants.

All of our caregivers must have prior work experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.  We specialize in Elder Care services such as Alzheimer’s Care, Arthritis Care, Parkinson’s Care, Hospice Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, and Post Stroke Care.

Caregiver & Elder Care Service

At A-1 Home Care, we understand the importance of keeping Elderly and Senior individuals busy with daily activities.  Although their physical or cognitive capabilities might be diminished, it’s always possible to simplify the activities for them to enjoy.  Sometimes it’s hard to think up activities that your loved one would be interested in participating in, which is why it’s important to understand their current and past interests and rekindle their passion for it.  For example, if your loved one enjoys gardening, enjoys card games, collecting things, or any other activity, think of ways to build upon their interest.  If they like to play poker, teach them another card game.

This article by Emillee Seltzer of Aging Care talks about how to create meaningful activities for Elderly individuals.  Although written for individuals with Alzheimer’s, the advice can be applied to all Elderly individuals.

Post Stroke Care

Strokes, also known as “brain attacks” occur when a blood clot blocks an artery or blood vessel, interrupting blood flow to the brain.  This is bad news, as the lack of blood flow causes brain cells to die, which negatively affects the person’s ability to perform abilities that the affected part of the brain once knew.  Strokes can result in disabilities with speech, movement, or memory.

With the help of rehabilitation services from physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech/language pathologists, stroke victims can sometimes regain and refine any skills they once had – however this process could take months to years depending on the severity of brain damage.  This Q & A Fact Sheet from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke provides information on post-stroke rehabilitation, types of disabilities resulting from stroke, medical professionals that can help with rehabilitation, and more.

A-1 Home Care provides post-stroke in-home care services in Anaheim Hills, Corona, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, La Habra, La Mirada, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, and other cities in Orange County and Los Angeles County.  We offer caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who are able to assist your Elderly or Senior loved one with day-to-day activities and can follow doctor’s orders or instructions from rehabilitation therapists.  Our caregivers are available for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care services.
