Stroke is heavily correlated with diet and a sedentary lifestyle.  High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, physical inactivity, and heavy drinking are all risk factors of having a stroke or heart attack.  To prevent a stroke or second stroke, it’s essential that lifestyle changes be made that include healthy nutrition and daily exercise.  An issue with learning about good dieting for a stroke victim is that physicians may be ill-informed or lack confidence to provide information on nutrition, even though it’s such a vital part of life after stroke to prevent another one from occuring.

“Even as rates of obesity and Type 2 diabetes soar, researchers report that doctors are spending less time than ever talking to patients about nutrition because they lack time, training, and optimism that patients can make lifestyle changes,” writes the author of this article from the Daily Gazette titled Diet Change Helpful in Preventing Heart Attack and Stroke.  The article also talks about the “Mediterranean Diet,” which can help in preventing inflammation from developing in artery walls, prevent stiff blood vessels, blockages, or plaque.  The diet consists of a high intake of olive oil, fruits, nuts, vegetables, and cereals, moderate amounts of fish and poultry, and low doses of dairy products, red and processed meat, and sweets.

At A-1 Home Care, we want to help your Elderly or Senior loved one who has suffered a stroke recuperate comfortable when they come back from the hospital or rehabilitation center.  With a focus on healthy living, our caregivers can assist with personal care, daily errands, and doctor/therapist recommendations that may include a healthy meal plan or daily exercise regimen.  We can provide Post Stroke Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.

All of our caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our offices staff.

We serve the OC communities of La Mirada, Yorba Linda, Fullerton, Brea, Diamond Bar, Anaheim Hills, Villa Park, Garden Grove, Tustin, Irvine, La Habra, and others in Orange County.

To interview and hire a compassionate caregiver in your area today, CALL us at 562-929-8400 for a FREE in-home assessment.

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.

To hire a compassionate Hospice Caregiver today, CALL us at 562-929-8400 for a FREE in-home assessment.
