Anaheim Hills Home Care: Sustaining the Link between the Elderly & Their Doctors

a-1 home care breast cancer early detectionHow strong is your elderly loved one’s relationship with his or her primary care provider?  According to University of British Columbia research, patients with chronic conditions are more likely to maintain or improve their own health if they have an ongoing relationship with their primary healthcare (PHC) provider.  Common chronic conditions include Diabetes and Arthritis; if your elderly loved one has Alzheimer’s and Dementia, however, is she capable of sustaining that much needed rapport with her physician?  If you don’t live with your elderly parents, how can you be sure that they are receiving the regular care and attention they need from their doctors?  A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills provides 24 hour care for seniors who live alone or with family members who may need live-in assistance for their loved ones.

Caregivers play a crucial role in connecting their care recipients with their physicians.  Seniors with impaired cognition are unlikely to report accurate results of their health, and they need family members or in-home caregivers to give an account for their vital signs, progress, and potential problems.  A-1 Home Care has caregivers in Anaheim Hills and surrounding areas who will come to your elderly loved one’s home to check in, assist with household chores, make meals, give rides to medical and dental appointments, and be a delightful companion to ease senior loneliness.  You can also request caregivers to stay 24 hours a day to keep your loved ones safe from danger.

Managing senior care has never been easier.  With help from A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills, you can count on highly skilled caregivers, certified nurse aides, certified home health aides and licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) to provide excellent senior care.  You can choose language preference, as we have a large pool of caregivers from diverse cultural backgrounds, ranging from Cambodian, Filipino, Chinese, and Middle Eastern to Hispanic and African-American.  Rest assured that A-1 Home Care conducts an extensive criminal background check and thoroughly verifies all professional references before allowing a caregiver to enter your home.  A-1 Home Care is licensed, bonded and insured.

 

For more information, call A-1 Home Care today (949) 650-3800 or visit www.anaheimhillsinhomecare.com.  We have service locations all over Orange County, including Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Costa Mesa, and Fullerton

Anaheim Hills In-Home Care: Total Western Diet Prolongs Chronic Pain

a-1 home careThe Total Western Diet could be totally wrong for your health!  What does the TWD consist of, you may ask?  This diet, mostly consumed in the United States, contains mostly carbohydrates, saturated and monounsaturated fats.  In other words, think pizza, French fries, burgers and lots of red meat.  “Because poor diet heightens hypersensitivity, patients with chronic pain who regularly practice bad diet habits are likely to experience exaggerated pain responses and recovery from injury or surgery,” says Dr. Robert Sorge of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  Do you have an elderly loved one recovering from recent surgery?  Do you have chronic aches and pains that don’t seem to go away?  Let A-1 Home Care in Anaheim Hills take care of you.

 

How TWD Prolongs Your Pain

After getting discharged from the hospital for a surgical procedure, your rate of recovery will depend on what you eat.  According to a study published in The Journal of Pain, results show that poor dietary habits alter your perception of pain, and there is a direct link between increased pain and poor diet quality.  If you were accustomed to eating burgers, pizza and fries prior to surgery, it won’t be easy breaking that habit after the operation.  With help from A-1 Home Care’s post-surgery aide, you can get the motivation you need by letting someone else make delicious, healthy meals so you can recover much more quickly.  Live-in 24 hour in-home care includes meal preparation, light housekeeping, transportation, companionship and more.

 

Affordable Help at Home for Anaheim Hills Residents

A-1 Home Care offers a variety of in-home care services, from post-surgery care to specialized care such as Parkinson’s Care, Alzheimer’s Care, and Arthritis Care.  Customer satisfaction is 100% guaranteed, which is why this licensed, bonded and insured home care agency continues to thrive even after 24 years.  All caregivers are First-Aid/CPR-trained, and you may request a certified home health aide, certified nurse assistant or licensed vocational nurse (LVN).  A-1 Home Care provides non-medical care for families in Anaheim Hills, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, Costa Mesa, Placentia, Tustin, Orange, Newport Beach, and other cities throughout Orange County.

Consult a care manager today by calling (949) 650-3800 or visit our website www.anaheimhillsinhomecare.com for more information.

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.

Caregiving for Stroke Victims in Anaheim Hills

a-1 home care

When an Elderly or Senior loved one suffers a stroke, it can be difficult for a family member to know how to be as supportive as possible in the aftermath.  You might not have too much knowledge about stroke except that it can be caused by having high blood pressure, eating poorly, or smoking.  A stroke occurs when brain tissue is deprived of oxygen because of a blood vessel clot (ischemic) or blood vessel burst (hemorrhagic).  Depending on the level of brain tissue damage your loved one suffered, recovery may be short term or long term and they may have to undergo rehabilitation for paralysis, memory/thinking, or speech/language complications.

When your loved one is ready to come home to live independently, they’ll most likely still need living assistance until they are able to complete tasks of daily living on their own.  While recovering, it’s important to follow doctor’s orders and lead a healthy lifestyle that will prevent a recurring stroke.  This section of the American Stroke Association’s site titled Healthy Living After Stroke serves as a great starting point resource in emphasizing the importance of nutrition and physical activity for post stroke survivors.  Check it out here.

It can be difficult to put aside work or other obligations to provide 24 hour care for a loved one who has just come home after emergency treatment or rehabilitation for a stroke.  At A-1 Home Care, we provide Post Stroke Care in Anaheim Hills, CA to help your loved one get their life back on track.  Our compassionate and experienced Post Stroke caregivers can assist with compliance of doctor/therapist orders, activities of daily living, personal care, exercise, and preparing nutritional meals.

Whether you need a caregiver for 24 hour Live-In Care or want to provide some of the care yourself and only need a caregiver for Hourly In Home Care on some days, we can accommodate any scheduling needs.

All of our compassionate caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving 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 serve the OC communities of Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Brea, Corona, Fullerton, La Palma, Placentia, Villa Park, La Mirada, Tustin, Garden Grove, Westminster, and others in Orange County.

To interview and hire a compassionate Post Stroke caregiver today, CALL us at 714-523-4010 for a FREE in-home assessment.

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.
