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.
