Stand Up For Your Health: Why Too Much Sitting Can Wreck It

As we age, many of us have the propensity to want to sit down more often. But did you know that sitting down could be taking you down?

That’s because research has found that too much sitting can lead to a greater risk for health problems like too much visceral belly fat (deeper-layered belly fat that surrounds your internal organs), heart disease, obesity, and even cancer. Even worse, all of these health issues come with a perilous warning that your chances of living a long life after they’ve wreaked havoc on your health are slim.

At A-1 Home Care, seniors don’t have to worry about whether they’re sitting too much and potentially increasing their risk for such health problems, because our expert in-home caregivers provide lasting solutions that motivate and stimulate the elderly.

Plus, we can also provide help around the house to make life easier for all of our senior patients, including:

  • transportation to and from doctor’s appointments and other engagements
  • cleaning and tidying
  • laundry
  • preparation of healthy meals
  • light housekeeping
  • gardening/yardwork services
  • personal care like grooming and bathing
  • and much more

Also, because proper hydration– namely, a lack thereof– is one of the leading reasons for wanting to be on our butts more than we should be, A-1 Home Care’s helpful caregivers will remind their clients to drink lots of fluids for proper metabolic processing and so that they’ll feel less like sitting down and more like staying on their feet.

 

Typically, a two-minute walk every hour is good enough for seniors to abstain from the harrowing health side effects of too much sitting, but our understanding caregivers can help set up specialized treatment plans for all their patients if those two minutes are especially difficult.

A-1 Home Care offers services across the Los Angeles and Orange County areas, including cities like Anaheim Hills, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar, and Pasadena. For more information about our in-home care services, dial (626) 287- 0250 and speak with an A-1 Home Care professional today!

Stress can be very bad for your health, and since it raises the heart rate and blood pressure of the person, it can be especially dangerous for seniors.  Positive thinking not only help with stress management, but it can lead to better overall health of the person because of it.  We often talk to ourselves, whether looking in the mirror or just in the mind.  But when there self talks are geared toward tackling issues in more positive and productive way instead of the other way around, then the individual is less stressed overall.

Health benefits from positive thinking are long too.  For example, many practicing positive thinking see an increased life span, greater resistance to common cold, reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and have a better time coping with hardships and stress.  While there is no concrete answer to the reasons or causes behind these benefits, but statistics are showing that they are indeed happening.

Arthritis Care – Food and Exercise

Living with arthritis is painful. Arthritis can cause long term joint pains that can interfere with the patient’s life. Asides from pain killers, there are other pain reducing methods caregivers can provide for patients.

Caregivers should introduce healthy diets and regular exercises into the patient’s life. A healthy diet and regular exercises can help maintain a healthy weight and shed the excess pressure extra weight can put on the joint. It can also help lower the risk of diabetes and blood pressure. If the patient is having difficulty with exercises due to the pain, consult the doctor and introduce other therapeutic exercises such as water therapy which puts less pressure on the joints. Suggested by Joy Bauer, from Today, some foods can reduce inflammation in arthritis. Foods such as, Omgega 3 fatty acids, extra virgin olive oil, ginger, turmeric  and antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Selenium, Carotene, and Bioflavonoids are beneficial for arthritis patients. “Fight Arthritis With These Foods” has more detailed explanations on how each food and arthritis.
