Healthy Diets for Seniors and Elderly in Anaheim Hills, CA

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.

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.

At A-1 Home Care, we can provide a caregiver, nurse aide, or companion who has experience providing daily in-home care for Elderly and Senior individuals.  Our caregivers are available for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care.  We understand how busy you are, and want to help keep your loved one happy and busy in their old age.  We can engage your loved one in activities they enjoy, try out new activities, and provide personal care services throughout the day.

Our non-medical caregiver placement agency has been in business since 1991 with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau and Shield Accreditation.  We serve the communities of Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Brea, Corona, Fullerton, La Habra, Placentia, Orange, Tustin, Irvine, Garden Grove, and other cities in Orange County and Los Angeles County.  Our caregivers have experience with a range of Elder Care services including Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Arthritis Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, and more.

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.

A-1 Home Care is a caregiver placement agency in business since 1991 with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau.  In addition to Post-Stroke Care, we offer other services such as Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson’s Care, and Child Care.  If your loved one has long-term insurance, we accept Penn Treaty, CALPERS, MetLife Insurance, Veteran Administration, Bankers’ Life & Casualty, and John Hancock.
