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.

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!

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.

It is no surprises that a legal guardianship is expensive, but the cost can really creep up on you after everything is done.  First, before the guardianship is even established, there is the initial court filing fees and the attorney fees for helping you file these documents.  The court also appoints an attorney for the alleged incapacitated person to represent the person’s best interest and the fees will be charged for the service.  In addition, fees for qualified professionals such as doctors, social workers, and others to help examine the person are also part of the expenses.

After the guardianship is established, there is a mandatory and annual accounting report which needs to be submitted to the court.  This leads to more court fees as well as accounting fees if you hire a professional to prepare the report.  Finally, the attorneys representing both you and the incapacitated person will be needed down the road, accumulating more costs as needed.

Knowing the amount of costs will be involved, finding the best home care would save you trouble from additional expenses, and it is also a more affordable and personal option compare to residential care! A-1 Home Care is aLicensed, Bonded, and Insured home care agency that has been in business since 1991.  We have earned the  A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau and thousands of positive testimonials from satisfied.  We specialize in different Elderly Care services such as Alzheimer’s CareParkinson’s Care, Incontinence Care, Brain Injury Care, Diabetic Care, Post Stroke Care  Arthritis Care, and Cancer Care in the communities of La Mirada, Santa Fe Springs, Norwalk, La Habra, Los AlamitosDowney, Buena Park, WhittierVilla ParkYorba Linda, and others in Orange County and Los Angeles County.

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

Our diet is an important part of our overall health, and if we eat the right food, it can help provide a boost for us in our brain too.  According to the BBC, you should definitely binge on blueberries, because they are widely available, delicious, and can help improve your short term memory loss.  The omege-3 fatty acid from oily fish contains DHA, which is important in lowering your risk of Alzheimer’s.  A lot of us dislike broccoli when we were a kid, but if you are an adult and still avoiding this vegetable, then you should consider the rich vitamin K broccoli has because it can boost your cognitive functions.  Finally, having enough vitamin E helps in fighting cognitive decline, and sources include nuts, olives, eggs, and wholegrain.   If you can make some or all of these food part of your regular routine, you are well on your way to give your brain a boost and lower your risk of cognitive decline.

A-1 Home Care only seek and hire versatile caregivers who are able to adapt to different home care challenges.  For example, preparing meals that fit the dietary needs of a senior, light housecleaning, transportation to medical appointments, medication reminders, mail organization, and much more.  No matter if it is a live-in or hourly caregiver, we offer services in the areas of Alzheimer’s Care, Brain Injury Care, Arthritis Care, Diabetic Care, Kidney Disease Care,  Cancer Care, Parkinson’s Care, Multiple Sclerosis Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, and other home care challenges.  Our company covers all of Los Angeles and Orange County, including the cities of La Mirada, Santa Fe Springs, Downey, Whittier, Norwalk, La Habra, Yorba Linda,Buena Park, and Los Alamitos.

Stress can hit different people at different times.  There are also different ways that people handle and cope with stress.  Unfortunately, too many people are handling in unhealthy ways.  For example, many turn to smoking to calm down their nerves and reduce their stress.  There is no need in repeating how much damage smoking cause to our body long term.  Meanwhile, others turn to alcohol to get away from the problem with stress.  While in moderation this would be fine, drinking too much can also cause many potential problems with your health.  Other unhealthy ways include abusing drugs, social withdrawal, angry outburst or physical violence, and more.

Stress should not keep you from living a healthy life.  Coping with stress can be done in very healthy ways.  Exercise releases endorphins, keeping our mind happy while keep us physically fit.  A healthy diet can also prepare the body to cope with stress better.  Don’t skip breakfast, that way you can keep up with your energy throughout the day.  Although sugar and caffeine are stimulants, too much of them leads to a crash in mood and energy.
