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.

A-1 Home Care is a Licensed Bonded and Insured non-medical homecare agency that provides a variety of in-home care services for Elderly, Senior, and Terminally Ill individuals.  We strive to provide caregivers who can help enhance the quality of life of your loved one no matter what their care situation may be.  Healthy meal preparation, exercise, personal care, and companionship are staples of our care strategy.  When you can’t be there for your loved one, having a caregiver who can be there to provide assistance with activities of daily living or companionship can benefit their health, happiness, and well-being.

Some of our care services include 24 Hour Live-In Care, Hourly Care, Arthritis Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Post Stroke Care, Heart Attack Care, and Kidney Disease Care.

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.

The Caregiver’s Role in Hospice Care

hospice care newport beach a-1 home care

A caregiver plays an important role in hospice care. The caregiver is usually in charge of non-medical care such as personal hygiene, prevention of bed sores, and meal preparation. Caregiver communicates with doctors and nurses to provide pain relief and any support so the patient is living as comfortable as possible. Caregivers should also communicate with family and friends of the patient to understand the patient’s culture, religion, background, and their living habit. This is to provide familiarity for the patient. Learn more about the caregiver’s role in hospice care in “What Hospice Care Means For Caregivers“.
