a-1 osteoarthritisThere comes a time when you have to decide if your elderly loved one needs short-term care or long-term care before he or she is discharged from hospitalization.  Perhaps your loved one is not hospitalized, but you have been letting this weigh on your heart for some time.  Their future is in your hands, and you wonder what would be best for them and for everyone else. Many adult children are faced with a decision without a lot of information about the future, and they are afraid to make the wrong decision.

Thankfully, A-1 Home Care provides flexible scheduling for long- and short-term care if you are indecisive at this moment.  We understand that the health of our elderly loved ones fluctuates over a period of time.  For better or for worse, A-1 Home Care will accommodate to your needs.  We can always start off with Companion Care first and then gradually increase or decrease the level of care.  Our attentive, compassionate and skilled caregivers have nursed seniors back to health, and we also provide hospice care to provide comfort when that hour arrives.

Call A-1 Home Care today (562) 929-8400 or check out our website www.lamiradainhomecare.com to view a full range of services.  You can consult our professional staff members for a free assessment, and we will walk you through step-by-step and answer any questions you have about in-home care.  We offer affordable and quality care in La Mirada, Norwalk, Santa Fe Springs, Whittier, La Habra, Downey, Cerritos, Lakewood and surrounding cities.

Summer is the perfect time to relax for retirees, but it can also be dangerous because of the heat and their older age.  To make sure your loved ones are safely enjoying their time this summer, here are some useful tips to will keep seniors safe this summer.

  1. Always stay hydrated – Many of us don’t drink enough water, but this is especially dangerous for seniors because they are more susceptible to dehydration
  2. Keep cool – If it gets too hot, find places with air conditioning.  Whether it is the mall or the library, don’t take the chances and endure the heat.
  3. Wear  sunglasses – Cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are common vision problems for seniors. Ultraviolet rays can further damage your eyes, accelerating the disease’s progress
  4. Exercise in the morning or later in the evening – Exercise is great for us, but never exercise during peak sun hours where risk of heat stroke will be highest
  5. Know your emergency contacts – In case of any health issues, knowing who to call quickly can prevent any further issues.

Seniors have a lot of free time, but don’t be afraid of enjoying outdoor activities because of the danger of the heat. Simply follow these tips and you will have a great time this summer!

Mental health is affecting about 20% of the adults, yet less than half of them are receiving services for their conditions.  The most important thing to note is that a person’s mental health is crucial to the overall health and well-being.  Whether it is depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or PTSD, mental health problems can dramatically affect one’s quality of life.  One of the most common metal illnesses is clinical depression, and it affects more than 19 million Americans each year.

Alarmingly, there is a prevalent belief that depression is not a serious issue, and rather it is more a weakness than a medical condition.  During this Mental Health Month, we want to change that misconception about mental illness and educate people about the danger of depression and other mental health. We also highly encourage you to raise awareness about mental health around your community to hopefully get more people with mental health conditions into treatment.

At A-1 Home Care in La Mirada, we have a proud history of assistance seniors with home care needs, including those living with bipolar or depression.  Our exceptional caregivers are patient and compassionate, and they all have at least 2 years of experience as well as CPR certification to provide a peace of mind for all seniors and families involved.  We make sure to be flexible to all home care needs and requirements as our attempt to ease the stress and worries from our care recipients. Services you can expect include meal preparation, light housecleaning, hygiene management, medication reminders, mail organization, transportation, and much more.

Happy senior couple cooking together at kitchen. Focus on man.

Whether you have been looking to eat healthier or are trying to find motivation to stick with healthy diets, National Nutrition Month is a great starting point for all to celebrate a healthy lifestyle and remind ourselves the importance of eating right.  For those struggling to figure out where to begin, here are some tips from the Washington Post on how to jump start your health!

First and foremost, you should formulate a plan.  Plan out your meals on a weekly basis and coordinate your grocery runs, so you know which type of healthy choices to buy and cook.  Next, try to keep the healthy foods in or near the kitchen. The more convenient it is to pick out your salad, the more likely you will make the choice of eating the salad.  In addition to eating the right food, it is also important to learn the critical part breakfast plays in our diet.  It is always a good idea to load up during breakfast, so you have the necessary energy to go on with the day, then eat lighter as the day goes on.  Loading up at dinner when you will be sleeping a few hours later might not be the best idea. Finally, get into the mindset of earning your calories.  Whether it is by exercising, portion control, or other methods, try to find a way to be disciplined and not indulge in calories.

Two of our staff members at A-1 Home Care, Jackie Brown and Laura Torna, arrived at the Whittier Senior Center determined to bring some joy to the senior participants, and we ended up having one of the best times we’ve had there.  The event we planned was to celebrate Mardi Gras by having the seniors make themed masks using ribbons, sequins, glitter glues, and markers. All the senior participants displayed their creativity and made a variety of unique and colorful masks.  Some of them even got in to full Mardi Gras spirit and danced around with their mask on afterward!

We believe that you should find every possible way to stay happy, and A-1 Home Care is determined to bring the joy to seniors around our community as much as possible.  Since Valentine’s Day is near us, we set up a wonderful Valentine’s Day arts and crafts event at the Parnell Senior Center, thanks to the help of the interim activity coordinator Erin Hamilton.

Tables were all ready for us to set up, and once everyone was settled, you can sense the excitement in the air.  The seniors could not wait until we hand out the supplies for them to begin.  There were about 12 participants at the event, each were very friendly and very easy to talk to.  When speaking with them about their creations, they shared stories about baking, music, and even their grandchildren.  One of the participant, Betty, had so much fun with us, she even gave one of her bookmarkers to another participant for letting her know about the event!

Everyone wants to feel loved, and we hope to spread our love to the seniors each and every time we hold events in our community, no matter if it is Valentine’s Day or a simply a regular weekday.
