D. and lead researcher of a current project that’s investigating the link between heart disease, gut microbes and trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), an organic compound produced during digestion.  Coronary Disease is the nation’s top killer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  The goal of the research study is to deter the progression of heart disease by starting treatment at the gut level.  For years, agencies like A-1 Home Care in La Mirada have been taking care of seniors who suffer from chest pain, pain or numbness in any of the extremities, shortness of breath, and pain in the neck, back or abdomen, among other symptoms.

Maintaining a healthy diet is crucial to preventing or deterring effects of various heart diseases, such as coronary artery disease, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke, congestive heart failure, congenital heart disease, arrhythmia, and peripheral artery disease.  In La Mirada and neighboring towns, A-1 Home Care has caregivers who happen to be excellent chefs, and they will prepare a delicious, healthy meal morning, day and night for your elderly loved ones to enjoy.  Our live-in caregivers will look after your loved ones while you’re away at work, or they can be there 24 hours a day so you can rest when you come home.  Everything is done for you – laundry, light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation assistance, medication monitoring, and more.  No longer will you have to worry about waking up at odd hours of the night to help your loved one use the restroom or change soiled diapers – our certified nurse aides will be there to help at any hour of the night!

I bet you’ve never heard of elder law assistance and if you have, you’re one of the few. elder law assistance is legal guardianship over an elder’s finances. Legal guardians are responsible for completely taking care of this person’s health and anything that they own, including their finances.  Misfortunes and accidents are just a common occurrence of life that we must all face sooner or later.  Being prepared for such an accident is a step in minimizing further harm, which is why elder law is was created.  The elderly, senior, incapacitated, and minors are sometimes unable to fully take care of themselves, so elder law covers all facets of a person’s life to make sure that they are properly taken care of.   Elder law is made up of three parts: medicaid, estate planning, and guardianship.   A-1 Home Care can be there step-by-step with you as you transition into your guardianship role.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, A-1 Home Care would like to share with our viewers how they can check for breast cancer. For more information on our caregivers, call us now at 562 929 8400 or visit us at La Mirada In Home Care.

1) Check your breasts in the mirror with straight shoulders and arms down.

Look out for:

  • Dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin
  • A nipple that has changed position or an inverted nipple (pushed inward instead of sticking out)
  • Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling

Step 2: Raise your arms and look for the same changes.

Step 3: Feel your breasts while lying down, using your right hand to feel your left breast and then your left hand to feel your right breast. Use a firm, smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand, keeping the fingers flat and together. Use a circular motion, about the size of a quarter.

Cover the entire breast from top to bottom, side to side — from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage.

Step 4: Feel your breasts while you are standing or sitting. Many women find that the easiest way to feel their breasts is when their skin is wet and slippery, so they like to do this step in the shower. Cover your entire breast, using the same hand movements described in step 3.

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. Open 24/7, you can find live-in or hourly home health aides in Kidney Disease Care,  Cancer Care, Parkinson’s Care,  Alzheimer’s Care, Brain Injury Care, Arthritis Care, Diabetic Care, Multiple Sclerosis Care, Hospice CareIncontinence Care, and other senior care scenarios.
