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.

Exercising for Seniors and the Elderly

It improves your sleep, boosts your mood, and is good for the brain.  Exercising not only is beneficial to our physical healthy, but rather it has advantages to our overall wellness.  Older adults should not dive right in and start with intensive work outs.  Always approach with caution at first, and work your way back slowly.

Although exercising is great, any preexisting conditions might put you in potential danger, so first get medical clearance from your doctor.  After that, build up the exercise program slowly. Begin with shorter increments like 10 minutes twice a day, then when fitness improves, add more time and intensity to the program.  Most importantly, you have to stay committed at first.  It usually takes about a month of exercise before it becomes a habit, so try to focus on short term goal to stay motivated and allowing it to become a routine at the end.

Exercise keeps us healthy and independent, but for those who cannot sustain themselves and require assistance on a daily basis, A-1 Home Care in Newport Beach can be your solution. We provide experienced and compassionate caregivers who are able to assist with basic needs as well as specialized care. Some of our in home care services include Parkinson’s care, Incontinence Care, Arthritis care, Kidney Disease Care, Dementia care, After Surgery Care, and Diabetic care. You can count on our caregivers

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.
