Caregiving for Stroke Victims in Newport Beach

a-1 home care

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

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.

Depression & Companionship for Elderly & Seniors

a-1 home care

 

 

 

 

 

It’s common for Elderly individuals to keep their depression bottled up inside.  The World War II generation grew up in a time where depression was looked down upon and regarded as a character flaw.  They most likely feel that if they seek help for the depression, they’ll be sent off to a mental health institution or nursing home, losing their independence.  It’s a grave concern and a serious public health concern, as reported by the National Institute of Mental Health.  Deadly too, as the 65+ U.S. population only makes up 13% of the nation, but account for 20% of all suicide deaths, according to the National Institutes of Health.

It’s important to get your loved one to the doctor for a thorough physical exam if you haven’t already.  Treatment for depression is very effective – whether your loved one is prescribed antidepressants or talk therapy sessions.  Another option, especially if your loved one lives alone, is to hire a companion who can provide your loved one with companionship and participate in activities that will help keep them physically and mentally healthy.  A-1 Home Care provides compassionate and qualified caregivers, nurse aides, and companions for Companion Services on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly part-time basis.  Whether it’s reminiscing through old photo albums, talking about current events, or tending to a garden, our companions can help.

A-1 Home Care is a Licensed Bonded and Insured non-medical homecare agency that has been in business since 1991 with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau and Shield Accreditation.  We specialize in Elder Care services such as Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson’s Care, Cancer Care, and Diabetic Care in Newport Beach, Irvine, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, Tustin, Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, Garden Grove, and others in Orange County.
