Healthy Diets This Thanksgiving for Seniors and Elderly in Diamond Bar

Aside from ensuring that your loved one eats healthy and well-balanced meals each day, it’s important to have good food handling habits – especially this Thanksgiving. Elderly and Senior individuals have an increased risk of food-borne illness because their immune systems become weaker as they age.  To promote a healthy diet, caregivers or family members may go grocery shopping on a weekly basis to buy foods for the coming week’s daily meals, but with food items such as meat, poultry, and vegetables, it’s important to take into account how long it is safe to leave the food sitting out, how the food is prepared, and maintaining the food in the refrigerator.  Check out this article on Aging Care that talks about food safety measures you can take to prevent food poisoning.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide a variety of in-home caregivers who can provide assistance with healthy meal preparation, daily exercise, personal care, companionship, assistance with daily errands, light housekeeping, and any other activities of daily living to provide your loved one with the most enhanced quality of life possible at home.  No matter what your care situation is, the main tasks of daily living are generally the same, with slight differences in the approach and style of care.

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.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Home Helpers Can Relieve Family Caregivers.

Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia is a progressive disease, and patients slowly lose their cognitive abilities overtime.  In fact, aging increases your chance of dementia, and every 68 seconds an American develops Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Although every American has the right to determine the way they live, how to handle their finances or health care, if dementia or other diseases are affecting their abilities to make any informed decisions, then another person needs to step in and make those decisions for them. That’s where family caregivers would usually come in, but what about the many people who are in such circumstances, but have other jobs and duties to tend to? We’re not all superman and there is no shame in admitting that one needs help. Caregiving, after all, is a full time job.

Talk to your Senior Loved Ones this Labor Day

Have you ever sat down and talked with an elderly loved one about his or her life? Favorite activities, music or interests? If you haven’t, we recommend that you do. You just never know what kind of reaction you’ll see when they begin to speak of the things they love. Why not try it for this Labor Day? On top of that, they sometimes react very positively with things that you yourself may like. In the end, what brings out the best in seniors and the elderly is companionship or just having someone to talk and hear them out. Just see here in this YouTube webseries, called Elder’s React, which feature a group of elders reacting to things both old and new, from Elvis to Gangnam Style. In both videos, the reaction is overall positive and priceless.

A-1 Home Care understands why the seniors in his video elicit such a response and it’s because they have a keen audience, both present and on the interweb. Companionship, or someone they can have listen to or talk with, is very valuable for elders and that’s why our in home health aides have gotten so popular in Los Angeles and Orange County. We provide care for the elderly and terminally ill as well as care for Respite and 24 Hour care.
