Music Can Be Used to Relieve Stress in Seniors

a-1 home care palos verdes elder care

Music is filled with emotions, and in many instances, we can put our own interpretation as to how we feel when we listen to it.  That is a powerful tool to have when it comes to our emotions, and can be very beneficial to stress management.  Humans have been living with music for a long time, and we have a special bond with the melodies.  Because we feel great when listening to music, there has been much research on this topic and how it can be beneficial to us.  For over a few centuries, music has been used to treat illnesses and restore harmony between mind and body.  Research has shown that music can reduce stress and anxiety before and after a surgery, reduce the sensation from chronic pain, and increase self-esteem in elderly people while relieving depression.  Living with something as devastating as cancer can put a great deal of stress on a patient, but music therapy has shown to provide significant reduction in emotional distress and has show the ability to improve their quality of life.

24 Hour Caregivers in Newport Beach

A question that many adult children will oftentimes find themselves worrying about is “How will I know when my Elderly parent needs living assistance?”  As days go by, it can be hard to tell how your loved one is doing on a daily basis if you only see them once a week on weekends or even less – only on holidays.  So, how will you know if your loved one needs living assistance?  You might notice that they have some difficulty performing certain tasks.  Whether it be walking up or down stairs slowly or having really shaky hands when they’re carrying a food dish, these may be only some of the tasks that your loved one has difficulty with.  The PBS site has a Caregiver’s Handbook with a section dedicated to finding out when your loved one needs home care.  Included is a checklist for Activities of Daily Living that you can use to assess whether you loved one needs assistance with typical tasks such as shopping, bathing, dressing, doing laundry, etc.  It also considers physical/mental health and nutrition.  Check it out here.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide a variety of in-home care services for Elderly, Senior, and Terminally Ill individuals on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.  Whether it’s basic Companion Services or more specialized care, we can match you with a compatible caregiver who can help your loved one maintain their independence at home.  We specialize in After Surgery Care, Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, and Post Stroke Care.

All of our 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, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

We serve the Orange County, CA communities of Newport Beach, Long Beach, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Balboa Island, Lido Island, Villa Park, Corona Del Mar, Los Altos, Tustin, Signal Hill, and other nearby cities.

To interview and hire a compatible caregiver in your area, CALL us today at 949-650-3800.

Care at Home for Seniors & Elderly in Newport Beach

a-1 home care

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A danger that has been gaining more attention in recent years is that of Elderly fraud cases around the world, where scam artists use the trustworthiness of Elderly individuals as a weapon against them, tricking them into sending small to large sums of money to the scam artist.  One type of scam called the sweepstakes fraud occurs when the Elder receives a letter or phone call telling them they’ve one a large sum of money. This video titled Elderly Victim of Sweepstakes Fraud tells the story of a couple who received many letters in the mail that made them think they won $2.5 million and that the winnings would help the husband pay for the treatment of his wife’s cancer in the home.  The takeaway is that your loved one has to be careful about who they trust on the phone and in the mail and if you must pay to receive some sort of prize, it’s most likely a fraud.

At A-1 Home Care, we understand that you may not be able to be with your loved one around the clock to protect them from fraudulent people who can reach them by phone, mail, or even at their own door step.  We provide caregivers who can look after your Elderly loved one, providing companionship and/or personal care, and ensuring that they don’t fall victim to Elder fraud.  We provide in-home care services for all levels of care, whether it’s basic companionship or more specialized care such as Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, or Post Stroke Care on a 24 hour live-in or hourly care basis.

Our 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, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

We provide care at home for Elderly and Seniors in the communities of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, Corona Del Mar, Irvine, Tustin, Garden Grove, Los Alamitos, and others in Orange County.
