The most discomforting aspect of depression in Elderly individuals is that they don’t seek medical help because they try to hide it or family members regard it to be a normal part of aging, when having depression isn’t normal at all.  It’s confusing because some medical illnesses and medication cause symptoms that are the same as those of depression, making it hard to discern a side effect of medicine, symptom of medical illness, or symptom of depression.  In any case, it’s important to have your loved one thoroughly examined by a doctor if you suspect that your loved one might be depressed.

Social isolation, living alone, declining health, illness, and loss of loved ones are main causes of depression in Elderly individuals.  For this reason, it’s important that your loved one has the support of caring individuals who can listen to the feelings and concerns of the Elderly individual and try to provide comfort, instead of having them bottled up inside, which is where the problem starts.  A-1 Home Care knows that you visit your loved one as often as possible, but it may not be enough.  We provide compassionate and qualified caregivers, nurse aides, and companions for Companion Services on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly basis.  Our caregivers can provide your loved one with simple companionship and be their activity partner, pursuing various hobbies or activities with them.

Caregiving is a delicate process in which the person being cared for has to earn your trust and feel comfortable around you.  Some caregivers really aren’t cut out for the job because they do it merely for the income.  When in the process of selecting a caregiver to provide in-home care for your Elderly or Senior loved one, it’s important to find someone who has the right motives and personality to do a great job without making your loved one feel uncomfortable or at risk because of carelessness.  So how do you find out if a caregiver is right for your loved one?  Of course, it’s always good to interview more than one candidate, and the real test of integrity lies in the caregiver’s answers to well-constructed questions that will shed light onto how the caregiver will provide care.  Check this article titled Good Qualities of a Caregiver that talks about empathy, patience, strong constitution, and reliability as desirable qualities.

When someone you love is diagnosed with Cancer, it’s important to never keep any secrets.  Families are different in the way they handle their discussions about Cancer, especially with their children.  While it might be common sense to keep a Cancer diagnosis a secret from a young child, eventually they are going to find out.  It’s better to let them know of the situation according to their age and in terms they can understand.  This article from Chesapeake Family has more to say on the subject, “According to the ACS, ‘Children who are included in this experience from the beginning with truthful information in small doses will have less anxiety than children whose parents are more evasive,” says the article on the subject of a parent’s vital communication.

At A-1 Home Care, we can help your family deal with the difficulties associated with Cancer.  Caregiving, money, and time management will have a large impact on your family, and you’ve got to decide whether you can handle caregiving within the family, or if hiring outside help would be beneficial and worth the investment for your family.  If outside help seems like a good idea, we can provide experienced and compassionate caregivers for in-home Cancer Care.  Our caregivers have experience caring for individuals who have just gone through chemotherapy or radiation therapy and are familiar with side effects commonly experienced, such as the effects of fatigue, anxiety, hair loss, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, and other problems.

A-1 Home Care has caregivers available immediately for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care.  We specialize in Senior Care services such as Cancer Care, Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson’s Care, Arthritis Care, and Hospice Care in the communities of La Mirada, Santa Fe Springs, Norwalk, La Habra, Los Alamitos, Yorba Linda, Villa Park, Downey, Whittier, and other cities in Orange County and Los Angeles County.
