Don’t Be S.A.D. during the Holidays

Senior man enjoying glass of juiceThe University of Georgia reports that Vitamin D deficiency not only harms your physical health, but it could also have a negative impact on your mental health as well.  A team of researchers found a link between Vitamin D deficiency and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which affects about 10% of the world’s population, depending on where they live.  The biggest source of Vitamin D is the sun, and if you live in a geographical area where it doesn’t get much sunlight, you are more likely to get SAD during certain seasons of the year when less sunlight is available.  If you have an elderly loved one who is indoors all the time due to mobility issues, A-1 Home Care in Altadena can help prepare meals that are rich in Vitamin D.

Sources of Vitamin D 

Living in Southern California has its perks.  Despite the horrendous traffic everywhere you go, you have to admit that the weather in Los Angeles and Orange County is beautiful 99% of the year.  However, for the poor folks who are unable to enjoy the sunny weather outside, you can still bring Vitamin D into the sanctuary of your home where your loved one can enjoy a home-cooked meal.  A-1 Home Care’s caregivers, companions, certified nurse aides and home health aides will follow the care plan of your loved one’s dietician and ensure that your parent or in-law will receive maximum daily dose of nutrients.  Add tuna, salmon or mackerel to your meals every day.  Orange juice, fortified milk and mushrooms are also good sources of Vitamin D.

Caregivers Relieve Pain for Seniors

It’s reasonable to assume that pain is a natural part of aging, but sometimes this assumption can lead to preventable illnesses and deaths in seniors. A big fear that some people in Southern California have is shrugging off “simple joint pain” of their elderly loved ones and later finding out that this pain is something much more serious. But how can one tell the difference between simple pain that will go away and pain that should be given medical attention?

One of the best things to have for this kind of scenario is an in home caregiver. A-1 Home Care”s elderly home helpers are professionally trained and have two years or more experience in the caregiver field. With their help, you can rest easy knowing that an expert in senior health is available to watch over them. From Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care to 24 Hour Senior Care, A-1 Home Care can provide all categories of care for the elderly and senior residents of Altadena.
