Reduce or Eliminate Elder Care Complaints with Home Care

homecare a-1 home care elder careAttention family decision-makers!  As you are in the process of deciding the best care for your elderly loved ones in Orange County, treading in murky unknown waters can be a little scary.  If you make a bad decision, you could be stuck with it for a long time before you can change the circumstances.  In choosing elder care that’s the right fit for your loved one, do you know what you’re getting yourself into when you sign up for services?  In an article published earlier this November, a concerned daughter of an elderly woman expressed, “It’s like pulling teeth to get legitimate information… Facilities will tell you what you want to hear. A lot of people don’t know the real story about a facility. It’s only when you are there for a long time that you see what’s really going on.”

Information, testimonies, and referrals are extremely important.  If someone you know has received excellent senior care from an agency, she will tell you about it.  Friends and family who visit an elderly family member in the care of a professional certified nurse aide can see firsthand the type of care that the provider gives.  Is the nurse aide helpful, attentive and warm?  Does the senior seem content in her own home?  Does the house look nice and clean?  Home care seems to have a ripple effect on people.  The more visitors see the quality of care, the more they will spread the word if they’re happy with what they see.

This is why A-1 Home Care has been in business for 23 years.  Established in 1991, A-1 Home Care has served hundreds and thousands of seniors all throughout Orange County and Los Angeles County.  Clients and return client refer their friends and family, and by word-of-mouth, the licensed and bonded agency’s reputation has spread like wildfire, blazing a trail in elder care and raising the bar in professionalism, reliability and compassion.  Only the cream of the crop caregivers are selected from our large pool of applicants.  When you visit the home of an elderly person receiving care from A-1 Home Care, nothing is hidden and you can always ask your friend how home care is going for him or her.

Why tread unknown waters when you know that A-1 Home Care has been built on the foundation of trust from their clients?  Licensed, bonded and insured, this home care agency thoroughly investigates criminal background checks, verifies all professional references, and conducts personality/moral character assessments before anyone is allowed to care for your loved one.  Standard home care services like meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, transportation, errands and companion care are included in specialized care like Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson’s Care, Arthritis Care, and other types of elder care.

Make Life Safer for Seniors with Low Vision

a-1 home care elderly care pasadena

Vision is one of the most important sense for us, and when it begins to deteriorate, then we may experience difficulty staying balance, struggle to make corrective actions after a stumble, and avoid exercising because of it.  The lack of exercise can lead to loss in strength and balance, which can lead to falls, bone fractures, and even head trauma in some cases.  We understand that some vision impairments are irreversible, but we can do modifications in their surroundings to make life a bit safer for seniors living with low vision.

For example, if there are stairs in the house, you can mark the edges with bright, high-contrast tapes to make them extra visible.  If there are uneven surfaces, try to remove or repair the problem to reduce the risk of tripping.  Clean up any cluster in the house.  Boxes, wires, and objects big or small can cause stumble and falls.  Finally, make certain that the home for the senior with low vision is adequately lit.  But be sure that it is not too bright, because that can cause a glare and make the problem worse.

The more risk we can reduce for the seniors with vision impairment, the more likely we can minimize the risk of falling for them and preventing serious injuries altogether.

A-1 Home Care is the leading home care agency in Orange County.  We offer excellent care for seniors suffering from different ailments with individualized plans in Alzheimer Care, After Surgery Care, Parkinson’s Care, Cancer care, Kidney Disease Care, Brain Injury Care,  Respite Care, and Elder care.

Life Beyond the Pain

Living with Arthritis

Chronic aches can be a pain to live with.

Millions of people suffer from the crippling effects of arthritis. While it’s a disease that affects people of all ages, older adults and women are diagnosed more often. Stiffness and tenderness in joints can lead to becoming handicapped from achieving simple, every-day tasks, like answering the phone.

Exercising with Arthritis

Daily activity helps improve your arthritis pain, according to the Mayo Clinic. Not only does is increase flexibility and strength, but it can also help alleviate general fatigue caused by constant pain. Exercising increases blood flow throughout your body, thereby oxygenating your blood to the working muscles. Increased blood flow through exercise can help combat poor circulation as well as the “blues” often associated with ill-health.

Healthy Holidays with Diabetes

happy thanksgiving

The pressure to eat, eat, eat during the holidays can be especially difficult for families dealing with diabetes. However, mindful eating is possible during the season of overindulging. You can keep your diabetes under control while still enjoying some holiday favorites. Check out this article from Diabetic Gourmet Magazine for fun and filling holiday recipes.

Some tips include choosing “lighter” alternatives, like roasted onions instead of fried onions for your treasured green bean casserole. Be picky. Choose the one food you can’t do without and forego the non-essentials to cut calories. Sharing is caring! Bring your own dish so you know exactly how it was prepared and enjoy it guilt-free. Be merry without the sherry…drink water and keep alcohol consumption to a minimum. Focus on your family, friends, and the joy of the season—not just the feast.

Remember-mindful eating involves cultivating habits that you can sustain throughout the year, not just during the holiday season.

If you or someone you know is suffering from diabetes, we at A-1 Home Care can help. Our certified caregivers provide in-home diabetic care for your Elderly or Senior loved one in the city of Arcadia. Our services are also available in the OC communities of Anaheim Hills, Santa Ana, Tustin, Irvine, Garden Grove, Villa Park, Brea, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, Diamond Bar, La Habra, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, and others in Orange County.
