Tricks to Make Senior Care Work for Everybody

a-1 home care home care whittierWhen considering senior care for your elderly loved ones, there are many factors and barriers to take into account.  If you recognize some obvious signs that your loved ones will need help soon, A-1 Home Care is here to help you alleviate your problems and address concerns that may be weighing on your mind.

Distance

Do your elderly loved ones live in another state or a city too far away from you?  Is their home remotely far from neighbors?  Call on A-1 Home Care to check in on your parents.   We have caregivers who live in Altadena and every part of LA County to ensure that your loved ones are getting the attention they need.

The Difficult Parent

The time has come when your parents need your help, but the last thing you want is to be around them, physically speaking.  You found a loophole, however.  Whenever there is a third party around, such as a friend or a stranger, your parent is much more pleasant to be around and that is probably the only time when you feel comfortable enough to be in the same vicinity as your parent.

You can still help them and keep your distance.  A-1 Home Care in Altadena can be your buffer.  We will see to it that your elderly loved ones’ needs are met and that your visits be as pleasant as possible.

The Busy Professional

You are married or you’re a single parent with a full schedule and a thriving career.  Before your parents moved in with you, you were already busy enough with work and being there for your kids’ soccer match or singing recitals.  Now, your parents live with you and you’re not sure how you’ll balance it all!  A-1 Home Care offers affordable 24 hour care services that will assist your elderly loved ones and even help with the kids (such as pick-ups and drop-offs).  We are your extended hand whenever you need us.

The High Burden Caregiver

Taking care of your elderly loved ones has been great, but now it is beginning to take a serious toll on your physical, emotional and mental health.  You can’t remember the last time you had a break.  A-1 Home Care provides respite care for folks like you so you can take a mini vacation.  Working close to full-time and caring for loved ones is very taxing.  You owe it to yourself to get away, even if it’s for a week, to restore your sanity and relax.  We offer short-term and long-term care for seniors, and we will work with your scheduling needs.

The Inexperienced Family Caregiver

Your loved ones are at a hospital waiting to be discharged, and their physician just notified you today that they won’t release them unless they know that someone will be home 24 hours a day to take care of them.  You have absolutely no experience in caregiving and suddenly you feel like you have to do a crash course in CPR and First Aid plus learn about toileting care and other types of in-home care.  You feel absolutely overwhelmed!  A-1 Home Care has same-day service for families whose loved ones are waiting to be discharged.  Talk to a care manager today about elder care options that are available to you.

Regardless of the obstacle you face with senior care, A-1 Home Care has the perfect solution to ease your cares and worries.

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.

When to Start Hospice Care

hospice care altadena a-1 home care

 

When a loved one is suffering from a terminal illness it is tough. How do you decide when to start hospice care? The time to start hospice care is when treatment is no longer working and the main focus shifts to providing comfort for the patient. This is usually when the doctor announces the patient has less than six months. Hospice & Palliative Care Federation of Massachusetts suggests ” By contacting hospice early in the diagnosis  the patient and family reserve time to understand their options and choose the path that will have the most positive impact on quality of life.”Before making the decision to switch to hospice care, discuss this with families and doctors. 

A-1 Home Care in Altadena offers hospice care along with general in home senior and elderly care services. Hospice care is also available in Pasadena, Alhambra, Arcadia, La Crescenta, Sierra Madre, Rosemead, San Marino, or other cities in Los Angeles County or San Gabriel Valley.
