Here at A-1 Home Care, our caregivers provide multiple of in-home services, where our seniors can relax and recover in the comfort of their household. Our around-the-clock (twenty-four hour) caretakers specialize in many tasks, including senior assistance after surgery or an injury that requires medical attention immediately.

Our agency understands the importance of our senior patients having safe, speedy, and painless recovery. Some ways that our in-home care agency assists in this is by fulfilling tasks that, perhaps, many of our patients would do on their own–if it were not for their physical condition. They are cooking, cleaning, medication and food modernization, and transportation services.

a-1 osteoarthritisSome of the most common health conditions leading to hip replacement surgery include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors, osteonecrosis, injuries or fractures.  Hip replacement surgery is meant to improve mobility, eradicate or relieve pain, and enhance the hip joint.  On average, over 200,000 seniors in the United States fracture a hip every year.  Within a year of injury, about 30% of fall victims pass away.  For those who survive a hip fracture, AARP reports that 66% of the elderly won’t be able to use the toilet without assistance; 31% cannot get out of bed without assistance; and 20% won’t be able to dress themselves.  Hip replacement surgery is for candidates who cannot function on a daily basis without severe pain.   A-1 Home Care prepares families in La Mirada for post-surgery care when their elderly loved one returns home.
