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.

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.

Usually, families care for each other.  But when it comes to care for their senior and elderly loved ones, many arguments occur over the subject.  Here are a few reasons why you might be fighting within your family about elderly care.  People want their opinions respected, when adult siblings are having trouble concluding to a common view of needs to care for their elderly parent, friction between the different sides occur.  When this is the circumstances you are currently in, it is good to seek help from an expert guidance according to this article on A Place for Mom.  My own grandpa certainly acts grumpy and stubborn all the time, and many other seniors are turned off by the idea of receiving care from someone else.  Being in denial of losing their independence and hoping to not give it up is often the reason these elderly parents are resisting care. It is best to ease your loved ones by educating them about the benefits of receiving care, and that you are not trying to “put them away”.  Another hot topic among families is the cost of senior care, and how to pay for it.  If funding of care is not coming from the elderly parents themselves, conflicts are common when deciding the means to pay.  The best advice is to establish an open communication, understanding each person earns a different range of income, and burden may be more on some than others.

When the metastatic prostate cancer has spread to the bones, it can mean significant pain for the patient.  Radiation Therapy has a long track record of reducing pain for when the disease has reached the bone according to Dr Zelefsky during a CancerCare Workshop on the issue.  Typically, this type of therapy tends to be 10 sessions that last 2 weeks.  After the radiation therapy is over, many patients experience significant reduction in pain on their bones.  If doctors are able to pinpoint the disease, instead of the 10 session therapy, there is a possibility of a higher concentration of 2-3 session radiation therapy which has also seen success.  Patient needs to note that after such treatment, bones are more prone to fracture, and needs to take it easy on the bones after treatment.
