Get Creative with Elder Care Planning at A-1 Home Care

a-1 home care diamond bar at home hospice careOne of the greatest benefits of elder care planning is taking control of your elderly loved one’s or your own future rather than falling victim to the circumstances of a sudden cardiac event or other crisis.  Life is short; plan wisely.  According to a reporter from The Associated Press, most families do not plan for end-of-life care.  If you were counting on Medicare to cover costs for in-home care, think again.  Medicare will not cover less intensive care options, which means you or your elderly loved ones might end up in a nursing home that offers services you don’t need.  Most seniors only really need basic assistance with non-medical chores, such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, companion care, toileting care and other basic tasks.  A-1 Home Care offers affordable yet high quality 24-hour senior care services in Diamond Bar.

Superior In-Home Care All Year Round

A-1 Home Care offers a variety of caregiving services to respond to your elderly loved one’s changing needs.  Maybe your parent doesn’t need a caregiver right now, but she is divorced or widowed.  Having a companion around for good time’s sake will reduce depression and, consequently, improve her physical health.  As the pre-screened, certified caregiver builds long-lasting bonds with your parent, the transition from live-out companion care to long-term 24 hour care gets easier.  Many seniors do not respond well to a perfect stranger in their home when they really need a 24 hour caregiver, so it’s better to have a companion caregiver around that will gradually build into something permanent in the long haul.  You can increase or decrease the level of care as time goes by.
