Arthritis Relief from Arcadia In-Home Care

alz 1Arthritis is a broad category of diseases that are characterized by inflammation and stiffness of the joints.  Gout, Lupus, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis are various forms that cause debilitating pain and limit functions of daily living.  Inflammation can be further triggered by the foods we eat, especially when we consume junk food and add toxins to our body that are not easily flushed out of our system.  If you or a loved one needs help at home with managing activities of daily living, you have come to the right place at A-1 Home Care in Arcadia.

On a day-to-day basis, the level of pain depends on each individual.  For some, the stiffness in joints starts early in the morning but it goes away later in the day.  For others, the pain is so severe that they cannot move any joints and would need assistance with bathing, grooming, oral hygiene, feeding, and pretty much anything that requires movement of hands and feet.  For seniors, having once been able-bodied and independent, this is a very humbling state to be in, but you can ease their anxiety by hiring a caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Arcadia for 24 hours a day.

Help for Stroke Victims in Arcadia

One of the scary aspects of stroke is that stroke survivors may be able to fully recover or they may have lifelong disabilities that affect their ability to move, talk, think, and remember.  It can be incredibly frustrating for the stroke survivor because they can’t express themselves to others easily and may require assistance with every part of their life.  The most important thing that family members can do is provide emotional support and ongoing care to help your loved one recover and prevent another stroke from happening.  Beginning a new lifestyle that includes healthy meals on a daily basis, physical therapy, and exercise are necessary to facilitate recovery.  Any resource or medical professional you seek advice from will tell you that nutrition and exercise are the key to a healthy lifestyle and prevention of another stroke, in addition to giving up unhealthy addictions such as smoking and drinking.

Science with Seniors

Science activities are fun…but most folks would usually reserve these activities for after-school time with the kids. What we forget is that many of these entertaining past times can also be done with our elderly loved ones. Why wouldn’t they enjoy an amazing science experiment that could offer not just some new piece of knowledge but also some meaningful time with family?

We at A-1 Home Care know that seniors and the elderly would love to engage in such past times and that’s why we’d like to share some ideas that could be done with the grandparents, kids and everyone. If you’re finding a hard time to balance work, and other projects, why not try a 24 Hour caregiver from A-1 Home Care to supervise such amusing activities with your loved ones?

Ocean Science:

Did you know that the blue whale is the largest creature to ever live on Earth? It has a heart the size of a small car and veins so large a human could swim through them.

Along with explaining some interesting facts about the ocean and the animals that live in it, you can demonstrate the density difference between fresh and salt water. Take two glasses; fill one with salt water and one with fresh water. Ask your senior audience – will the egg float, in both glasses or in either glass? Then place the egg in the fresh water – it sinks. Now place the egg in salt water – it floats. This is because the salt makes sea water denser than fresh water.

In addition to assisting with science experiments, our in home and live in caregivers can help your senior loved one with needs around the home, including meal preparation, grooming and light housecleaning. Licensed, bonded and insured, our agency offers a wide variety of caregivers, ranging from Senior Caregivers to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiver.

Healthy Diets for Seniors and Elderly in Arcadia, CA

a-1 home care

The quote “Never judge a book by it’s cover” can also be applied to nutrition and food.  For example, although we can all agree for the most part that green vegetables are healthy, some may not be appropriate for Elderly and Senior individuals.  Certain foods have some bacteria that makes it harder for Elderly and Senior individuals to fight off germs inside the body and as a result, they could end up getting sick; whereas for a younger person, eating the food might not be as big of an issue.

Caregivers who prepare meals for Elderly individuals on a daily basis should be aware of certain foods that although healthy, might cause problems for Elders or Seniors.  This article talks about foods such as raw seafood, sprouts, soft cheeses, unpasteurized milk & juice, ceviche, Montecristo sandwiches, tiramisu, and others that could cause some type of food-borne illness.

At A-1 Home Care, we can ensure that your loved one eats nutritious meals on a daily basis.  Our caregivers have ample experience with meal preparation for Elderly and Senior individuals.  All of our homecare professionals must have at least 2 years of prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, and pass multiple background checks and tests before we approve of them.
