Study Reveals: People Who Spend More Time Sleeping are More Likely to Develop Dementia – Learn How to Prevent This

a-1-home-care-cancer-care-pico-riveraDementia and Alzheimer’s disease affects thousands of aging people all over America. A new study reveals that there may be a link between dementia and excessive hours of sleep. There are more the 40 million people suffering from dementia and the numbers are expected to dramatically increase. People with prolonged sleeping patterns also run the risk of entering into depression. Although sleep is very important and highly suggested, like anything, it must be moderated.

What You Should Do to Possible Prevent Depression and Dementia

Staying active and exercising you mind is an important step for the prevention or slow-down of dementia. It can be difficult finding the time to spend with your elderly loved ones, especially with jobs and families of your own. A-1 Home Care in Diamond Bar provides elderly care services for help at home or at assisted living facilities. It is important for the elderly to stay active and social as they age. Fortunately, A-1 Home Care provides assistance in facilities such as Silverado Senior Living, Whittier Place, Claremont Place and Oakmont of Chino Hills.

Why Should You Get a Caregiver at An Assisted Living Facility

Many times, caregivers in assisted living facilities can be assigned to 10-15 people. This complicates relationships between caregiver and client. It becomes understandably difficult for a caregiver to give undivided and genuine attention to their clients. Luckily, A-1 Home Care does not solely provide caregivers but companions for your loved ones. Our mission is to find a caregiver that genuinely connects with you and your family at a deepness that may not be reached by other caregivers. Our nurse assistants are CPR certified, First-Aid certified and provide around the clock service. Moreover, if anything were to happen to your loved one, home health aides are aware of the surrounding hospitals such as Huntington Memorial Hospital, Kaiser Permanente Anaheim Medical Center, and Chino Valley Medical Center.

Relieving Stress with Caregivers

Elderly lady and her daughter.

Stress can come in many ways, shape, or form.  Since we have all experienced stress at some point in our lives, if we can gain some insight into what triggers the stress for us, then we have a better chance in lowering the stress levels.  Here are a few examples of stress triggers. One of the more common stress trigger can be attributed to emotional stressors. Fears and anxiety is a natural part or us, whether it is nailing the job interview, relationship issues with family members, or being confronted with your phobia, all can skyrocket stress levels.  We are a creature of habits, and while change is good sometimes, other times it can lead to much stress.  For example, moving to a new place, adjusting to a new community, and more.  Another type of stress trigger can be disease related, whether it be a common cold, migraine headache, broken bone, or cancer diagnosis.  With so many ways that can induce stress, it is best to share find support no matter the level of stress to avoid further complication.

Care After Seniors hand Over the Keys

24 hour care in diamond bar a1 home care

Driving is a huge part of our lives, especially around Southern California where we drive almost everywhere.  But for your elderly parents, it might be time to take away their car keys for good as their driving abilities do diminish. While there is no doubt that many seniors can drive safely, the chances of them getting seriously hurt in a car accident is definitely higher than for those who are younger. Here are a few signs that should serve as a warning that this talk needs to happen sooner rather than later. For example, those with a decline in visions may have increased sensitivity to sunlight and headlights.  Hearing loss can also contribute to a more dangerous driving experience. Other factors include various diseases, such as Dementia and Parkinson’s, that could impair their abilities to pay attention to the road, as well as medications with side effects that may hinder their driving performance. It is best to sit down with your loved ones to discuss this situation, because taking away an independence is never easy.

If there is a need for a 24 hour live in caregiver for your loved ones, A-1 Home Care in Diamond Bar offers experienced and reliable services for many situations. Included but not limited to Dementia care, Parkinson Care, After Surgery, Cancer care, and other senior related care services. We also cover nearby areas such as Walnut, Pomona, Chino, Riverside, and much more around the Los Angeles and Orange County.
