Arthritic Seniors Experience Lasting Relief With Home Care In Alta Dena

Many people in Alta Dena have arthritis, which is the inflammation of the joints between bones. Unfortunately, the majority of these arthritis patients are also seniors, largely because seniors have had more time to accumulate the natural wear-and-tear on their joints that is typically responsible for inducing arthritis.

At A-1 Home Care, our specialized arthritis care experts will stop at nothing to provide you with as much help as you need in your home. That means you won’t have to feel increasing pain in your joints from doing things like bending forward, grasping tools, turning knobs, or any other day-to-day activities that create greater pressure on the joints.

Caregiver Service After Surgery in Altadena

For certain diseases, drugs cannot entirely cure the problems, but rather simply slow the the progress of the disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is an example of this scenario.  Furthermore, drugs often come with unwelcoming side effects.  Luckily, with research and medical advances, surgery is becoming more and more an option for individuals to consider for rheumatoid.  In this article “When is Surgery Right for Rheumatoid Arthritis” from WebMD, it is suggested that if there are structural damage to the joint or surrounding tissue, surgery may be the better option over drugs.  For example, if the knee is so painful and stiff to hinder you or your loved one from performing routine tasks, and drug treatments seem to be ineffective, then a knee replacement surgery might be a viable option.  Same can be said for the options for hip replacement.

A-1 Home Care in Altadena has a staff of quality caregivers for any after surgery needs.  Caregivers like Ruth Jackson, Natali Crystobal, and Linda Enriquez all put in their maximum effort to handle situations in a variety of services, including Alzheimer Care, Parkinson Care, Incontinence Care, Diabetic Care, Post Stroke Care, Cancer Care, and other Elderly Care services.  With quality services come testimonials, and we have received thousands of them from over two decades in the business operating in the cities of Altadena, Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, San Marino, and other surrounding areas in Los Angeles and Orange County.

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.
