Labor Day Special: Elders React to Home 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.

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.
