If you’re coping with a fatal diagnosis of a loved one or caring for an Elderly and terminally ill loved one, the anxiety levels from anticipation of the holiday season may run high.  You realize that this time of the year is going to be different and may be the last holiday season your loved one may ever experience.  It’s a blessing if your loved one can experience the holidays because they are early in their diagnosis, but others are dealing with a loved one on the brink of death.  There are many ways in which you can calm your nerves and get through the holidays.  This website called Grief Share has a Holiday section with a variety of articles and videos designed to help a griveing individual get through the holidays – created by people who have gone through what you’re going through.

At A-1 Home Care, we believe that to truly cherish the little time you and a loved one may have left, you should consider Hospice Care.  With Hospice Care, the focus isn’t on sustaining life in a hospital, but receiving care at home with family close by.  The focus is on improving the terminally ill individual’s quality of life until death by easing pain with medication and providing emotional and spiritual support.  In Hospice Care, many individuals find comfort in God and strengthen relationships with their loved ones by being in the right place and right time to say something they may not have been able to say at a hospital.

A-1 Home Care provides Hospice caregivers, nurse aides, and companions for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care services.  We serve the communities of La Mirada, Buena Park, Yorba Linda, Fullerton, Diamond Bar, Anaheim Hills, Corona, Garden Grove, and others in Orange County and Los Angeles County.

A-1 Home Care is a non-medical homecare agency that is Licensed Bonded and Insured with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau, Shield Accreditation, and memberships with the National Care Planning Council and Chamber of Commerce of Torrance, Santa Fe Springs, Pasadena, and Newport Beach.  If your loved one carries long term insurance, we accept Penn Treaty, CALPERS, MetLife Insurance, Veteran Administration, Bankers’ Life & Casualty, and John Hancock.

Hospice Care is an option for anyone, regardless of age, with a terminal illness. Many people have a misunderstanding of hospice care believing it is is only for patients with stage four cancer. However, this is not quite true. Although there are cases of hospice care for cancer patients, hospice care is actually for anyone with a terminal illness that has less than six months to live. The goal of hospice switches from curing the disease to providing comfort and reduce pain for the patient. Many patients with terminal illness suffers from chronic pain. The team of hospice care professional, which can include doctors, nurses, and home health aides, will provide pain control and any assistance for the patient so they may live comfortably. Learn about hospice care from Mayo Clinic‘s “End of Life“.
