A Rising Epidemic: Cancer in Our Youth

a-1 home care diamond bar sick child careCancer used to be a terminal illness for middle-aged adults and the elderly, but not so anymore.  As we enjoy advancements of technology, our children are also suffering the by-products of the Industrial Revolution: air pollution, radiation from cell phones and tablets, radiation from x-rays and CT scans, disruptions of the internal clock from too much bright light at night, and so forth.  Statistics of cancer in youngsters have risen 40% in the past 16 years due to these factors; according to Children with Cancer UK, statistics show that there are 13,000 more cancer cases per year compared with 1998.

The Good & Bad News of Chemotherapy for Children

The good news is that 8 out of 10 children survive at least five years after receiving cancer treatment, and most children are cured from cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.  However, the aftermath of chemotherapy raises concerns in parents.   Symptoms during chemo include hair loss, blood clotting, and fatigue.  A-1 Home Care offers in-home cancer support for children and their parents.  When parents are away at work, there is a compassionate, experienced caregiver at home, helping the child with activities that will build mental and physical strength during recovery.  Live-in care includes assistance with meal preparations, house cleaning, and transportation around Diamond Bar.

Diamond Bar Hospice Care Options for Advanced Heart Failure

24 hour care in diamond bar a1 home careIf your elderly loved one has advanced heart failure, shared decision-making becomes an important step in determining treatment options for the remainder of your loved one’s life.  Advanced heart failure is determined when heart disease reaches a stage beyond curable treatment and management strategies.  In the United States, about 570,000 seniors have advanced heart failure.  Shared decision-making involves discussions about end-of-life options.  Does your loved one want to be resuscitated in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest?  How long would your loved one want to be on life support?  Hospice care, or palliative care, is always included as part of one’s end-of-life care planning.  Many seniors request not to be hooked onto a life support machine; they rather just enjoy the rest of their remaining days in peace and comfort as much as possible.  A-1 Home Care offers 24-hour hospice care for seniors and their families in Diamond Bar and surrounding cities.
Professional Hospice Caregiver Acts as Liaison

 

Planning your loved one’s end-of-life care evokes much grief during the process, but A-1 Home Care in Diamond Bar will be here to help you every step of the way from answering any questions you may have about your elderly loved one’s wishes to providing in-home care assistance such as meal preparation, chores, bathing, and personal care.  Our seasoned and highly skilled hospice caregivers will serve as a liaison between your loved one’s medical team, you and your elderly loved one.  Hospice care in the familiarity of your own home provides additional peace for your loved one as opposed to receiving hospice care at a nursing home or hospital.  According to the Hospice Foundation of America, individuals prefer to die in comfortable surroundings than clinical, institutional settings.  Among many other benefits of in-home palliative care, giving your elderly loved one a sense of dignity in his final days is quintessential.
