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.
