Healthy Diets for Seniors and Elderly in Newport Beach, CA

Embarking on a healthy diet program can be an exciting way for Elderly and Senior individuals to connect with family members or caregivers.  Having health goals through dieting can help your loved one stay optimistic and following a diet can help you and your loved one socialize over what meals to prepare in the coming days.  One diet that can provide guaranteed results for better heart health is the DASH Diet.  DASH, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, is an easy to follow plan that focuses on eating the right foods at the right portions.  While many diets are hard to stick with because they completely ban certain food groups, the DASH Diet doesn’t have any limitations.  The diet emphasizes low saturated fat, cholesterol, and total fat.  Foods include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk products, moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and nuts, and a reduced amount of red meat, sweets, sugar, and sodium.  Check out a week’s worth of sample recipes to get started on the DASH Diet here.

Caregiving for Stroke Victims in Newport Beach

Having a stroke can be a tragic experience for the victim and their family.  Strokes occur when brain tissue is damaged because of a lack of blood flow to the brain from burst or blocked blood vessel pathways.  The effects of stroke vary widely between people in terms of the area of the brain affected and how much damage that determines what complications your loved one will face and whether they are temporary or permanent.  When your loved one is a stroke survivor, you want to ensure that all precautions are taken to prevent a recurrent stroke.  This may mean lifestyle changes that focus on better nutrition and more exercise.

Sweets such as candy are normally looked down upon by physicians and dieticians as a part of a healthy diet, but this Swedish study has found that chocolate eaters may have a lower risk of stroke when eaten in moderation because cocoa has some heart healthy properties.  Check out the article here.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide compassionate Post Stroke Care services on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis for recovering stroke victims.  It can be difficult handling activities of daily living right after a stroke because of temporary or long term paralysis or cognitive effects that may render your loved one incapable of caring for themselves.

All of our Post Stroke caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, Firs Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

We serve the OC communities of Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, Irvine, Tustin, Santa Ana, Anaheim Hills, Garden Grove, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, and others in Orange County.

To interview and hire a compassionate caregiver in your area, CALL us today at 949-650-3800 for a FREE in-home assessment.
