a-1 home care

If you’re coping with a fatal diagnosis of a loved one or caring for an Elderly and terminally ill loved one, the anxiety levels from anticipation of the holiday season may run high.  You realize that this time of the year is going to be different and may be the last holiday season your loved one may ever experience.  It’s a blessing if your loved one can experience the holidays because they are early in their diagnosis, but others are dealing with a loved one on the brink of death.  There are many ways in which you can calm your nerves and get through the holidays.  This website called Grief Share has a Holiday section with a variety of articles and videos designed to help a griveing individual get through the holidays – created by people who have gone through what you’re going through.

At A-1 Home Care, we believe that to truly cherish the little time you and a loved one may have left, you should consider Hospice Care.  With Hospice Care, the focus isn’t on sustaining life in a hospital, but receiving care at home with family close by.  The focus is on improving the terminally ill individual’s quality of life until death by easing pain with medication and providing emotional and spiritual support.  In Hospice Care, many individuals find comfort in God and strengthen relationships with their loved ones by being in the right place and right time to say something they may not have been able to say at a hospital.

A-1 Home Care provides Hospice caregivers, nurse aides, and companions for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care services.  We serve the communities of La Mirada, Buena Park, Yorba Linda, Fullerton, Diamond Bar, Anaheim Hills, Corona, Garden Grove, and others in Orange County and Los Angeles County.

A-1 Home Care is a non-medical homecare agency that is Licensed Bonded and Insured with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau, Shield Accreditation, and memberships with the National Care Planning Council and Chamber of Commerce of Torrance, Santa Fe Springs, Pasadena, and Newport Beach.  If your loved one carries long term insurance, we accept Penn Treaty, CALPERS, MetLife Insurance, Veteran Administration, Bankers’ Life & Casualty, and John Hancock.

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.
