CRF also known as Cancer Related Fatigue, can commonly be mistaken for simple tiredness. However, Cancer Related Fatigue is far more severe in the sense that the whole body is excessively tired, debilitating you from daily routines. Suddenly simple tasks such as cleaning, grocery shopping, or even driving can become cumbersome and physically taxing tasks. While no amount of sleep can fully relieve it, CRF can occur sporadically and suddenly. There is no known reason for exactly why CRF occurs, but it is linked to a plethora of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or hormone therapy. Even after cancer, CRF can persist. Unfortunately, due to the numerous medical causes, finding a cure can be quite difficult.
At A-1 Home Care in Altadena, we provide skilled and certified caregivers that can make day-to-day tasks manageable again. Our specialized care extends beyond cancer care such as Parkinson’s care, diabetic care, dementia care, and after surgery care.

This Labor Day is a perfect opportunity to take your elderly relatives out for some quality bonding time. But with the way that seniors are portrayed in the media, it’s no wonder that most popular thoughts and opinions about the elderly are based off of false claims that they are dull and listless. Think of Abraham Simpson or “Grandpa” from The Simpsons. Often there is a running joke throughout the series, which would portray Grandpa Simpson as going off some tale of his younger day’s right before falling asleep mid-sentence, or else as being in need of attention from his hesitant family. It can be very comedic at times, but overall highly inaccurate. As a provider for care at home for the elderly, we often like to spread accurate knowledge or impressions of seniors, which is why we would like to share the Elder’s React web series from YouTube, showing elderly seniors’ reactions to a variety of things, including modern and old fashioned forms of entertainment.
See how they react to a video of Elvis? That’s the true face of the elderly and it is the one we, at A-1 Home Care, like to see. It’s one that we ask our elder caregivers to bring out and they’ve been doing it successfully since 1991. No matter the condition of the patient, be it one who requires Parkinson’s Care or Diabetic Care, our in home helpers are able to administer all facets of homecare, from care for the terminally ill to cancer care.
