Anaheim Hills Alzheimer’s Care

a-1 home careAlzheimer’s Disease is a form of dementia that affects an individual’s ability to remember and communicate. Conversations can be a frustrating experience if family members do not educate themselves on the impact of Alzheimer’s Disease on their loved ones. It’s hard for seniors to think on their feet; oftentimes words don’t come to mind when they are trying to express emotions or communicate an opinion. Other symptoms of Alzheimer’s also include problems with concentration, hypersensitivity to the environment, confusion with language, inability to filter out background noises, and remembering simple steps such as balancing a checkbook.

When family members cannot stay home to take care of their loved ones, they rely on attentive caregivers and companions to assist their elderly loved one. A-1 Home Care provides experienced companions to take care of daily routines such as bathing, grooming, personal care, meal preparation, and much more!

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.

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.

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.
