????????????????????????????????????????A form of sickle cell disease (SCD), Sickle Cell Anemia is a blood disorder in which crescent-shaped red blood cells are produced.  The problem with sickle cells is that they block the flow of blood to limbs and organs, which causes pain and damage to organs.  To date, blood and marrow stem cell transplants may be a cure to a very limited number of people.  The effects of Sickle Cell Anemia vary from one person to another, but with appropriate home care and treatment, a person’s life span can be extended into one’s 40s or 50s.  A-1 Home Care in La Mirada is committed to delivering quality home care services to persons with Sickle Cell Anemia to help them sustain a normal lifestyle.

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.
