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.

Delicious And Nutritious Thanksgiving Options Abound For Elders In Anaheim Hills

Thanksgiving is fast arriving, but is your diabetes making the upcoming feast something to dread more than look forward to? How can someone with diabetes still enjoy the fullness of Thanksgiving without hurting their health in the process?

At A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills, we provide diabetic care services that come to the comfort of the home with diverse caregivers and an array of elder care solutions.

A-1 Home Care

Check out 3 helpful dietary tips below for enjoying the perfect Thanksgiving that won’t leave you with an upset stomach and plenty of regret later:

Eat Breakfast.

Some people assume that they will have “more room” in their stomachs for the massive nightly feast if they skip meals earlier in the day. But in reality, sticking to a normal eating schedule makes it easier to avoid overindulging come nighttime. Also, remember to remind the meal’s cook(s) of any dietary restrictions that you or your loved one may have.

Enjoy Mashed Potatoes Without Butter And Normal Milk.

Making mashed potatoes with whole milk and butter is an easy way to upset your diabetes further. Instead, use low or nonfat milk and margarine as substitute ingredients in your tasty taters.

Remember Your Veggies.

With all the food across the table, it might be hard to overlook all the cranberry sauce, thick turkey, and heavy mashed potatoes in favor of the raw vegetables. But fight the urge and indulge in raw or steamed vegetables for a change. Fill your plate halfway with vegetables during each serving, which makes it easier to avoid overeating on unhealthy meal options come Thanksgiving dinner.
