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.

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.
