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.

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.

Exercise to improve symptoms from Metastatic Prostate Cancer

24 hour care in palos verdes a1 home care

When prostate cancer is spread to the bone, it could cause pain and stress on the bone health.  It is always recommended to remain physically active to avoid losing calcium according to CancerCare.org.  With hormonal therapy and radiation treatments, calcium in your body could already be at a premium, light exercise such as walking or swimming is good to help maintain a good bone marrow density.  When bones are not health, and have possible fractures, sometimes a repair is needed before any treatment on the metastatic prostate cancer that has spread to the bones.  In addition, exercise can help combat symptoms of fatigue and maintain the heart health of the patient. If the individual is having difficulty with such activities, seek help from professionals.
