Located on the west side of Orange County, Seal Beach is a beautiful city that is the ideal and dreamland for any beach goer and surfer. It is a place for the family to go to together. Traveling, however, can become an issue if one of our seniors at A-1 Home Care has a history or has recently experienced a heart attack, stroke, and any other life-threatening events. But at the same time, our amazing, and skilled, caregivers understand the patience and caution that it takes in order for our senior clients to get back on track and monitor their health more than ever. This does not mean that they should stay indoors at all times, unless bed-ridden due to medical reasons, but to get outside every once in a while. After all, studies have shown that being around other people, especially loved ones, reduces anxiety and stress.

Some fun activities that our seniors can spend with their family, especially grandchild(ren), are:

  • Beach — Take a walk on the pier; sight-see the ocean and other beautiful views; grab a bite to eat at the famous, Hennessey’s; and visit, and depending what the doctor consults, grab some food and a drink at Clancy’s with your of age adult grandchild(ren).
  • Watch a pretty sunset at Wildlife Refuge.
  • Go shopping — The California Cottage has some raved reviews.

How does one know when it is time to look into Home Care Services?  There are things to consider when looking into professional help for your senior loved one.  The recovery process from falling ill, sustaining an injury or even healing after a surgical procedure can get overwhelming in the home if they are alone.  A-1 Home Care specializes in Short Term Care services delivered by expertly trained and compassionate caregivers.  If your loved one is scheduled for an upcoming operation and you are concerned about their healing once they return home from the hospital, it’s time call A-1 Home Care.  Everyday tasks can become stressful endeavors while recovering alone such as bathing, grooming, housecleaning-even managing an prescribed schedule of medication.  A professional Short Term Care Provider can allow your loved one the comfort and security of recovering in their own home while still receiving the attention they need along the way.

At A-1 Home Care, we understand that in many cases a devout family will often times step into the role of primary caregiver.  Not for fear of costs or of trusting a professional, but for the sheer fact that they are family.  This scenario can escalate into an overwhelming experience at times and despite the sincerest efforts of the loving family members, it can be the patient also who may suffer due to insufficient assistance and attention.  Utilizing the services of a professional Short Term Caregiver can offer relief to the entire family and allow the patient to fully realize the benefits of recovering in the home.  This can ease frustrations that may amount from changes in independence and relying on family members.

It is our goal with every Short Term Care patient to provide services that will allow the Elderly assistance to transition back into a routine of normalcy.  We deliver Respite Care in situations where work and other responsibilities may inhibit the care your loved one really needs.  We recognize that it may stressful leaving your loved on in the hands of someone else but it is important to remember that family care givers need rest as well.  All of our Caregivers, Senior Companions, Home Health Aides and Nurse Aides undergo a nationwide criminal background check, reference check, DMV background check as well as received CPR certification, First Aid training and come with Malpractice/Liability Insurance.  We are also State Licensed, Bonded and Insured.  Call us today at (949) 605-3800 or (562) 929-8400 to learn more about how we can help!

24 hour care in palos verdes a1 home careTypically associated as a childhood disease, asthma affects about 6% of the aging population over age 75.

How In-Home Care Helps

Athletes, veterans, and individuals who participate in high-risk non-contact sports/activities are likely to suffer from the following symptoms if they’ve had a history of multiple concussions:

  • Clinical Depression with suicidal tendencies
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Sleep impairment
  • Deficits in attention and memory
  • Higher rates of substance abuse
  • Increased aggression and hostility

The important components of brain injury recovery are social and rehabilitative in-home support.   Any type of cognitive activity, such as paying attention or thinking, worsens the patient’s symptoms; examples include reading, playing video games, using a cell phone, and doing homework.  Live-in caregivers from A-1 Home Care in Seal Beach will assist with meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, and personal care so that persons with TBI can rest as much as possible.

seal beach in home care caregivers a-1 home careWho knew that women who drink beer in moderation would have a lower chance of getting a heart attack?  A study conducted by researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, followed a group of women over a 32-year period.  The follow-up results show that those who consumed beer, not wine, on average of once or twice a week had a 30% lower risk of heart attack than their counterparts who drank heavily or did not drink at all.  Published online in Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care (July 2015), this study shows that alcohol may have “a certain protective effect,” but researchers are still studying the relationship between the incidence of heart attacks and the consumption of various types of alcoholic drinks.   At A-1 Home Care in Seal Beach, home care services protect against potential neglect of seniors who are at risk of stroke or heart attack, especially if they live alone.


Signs of Heart Attack or Stroke

The number one reason why many seniors may have a longer recovery period from a heart attack is when they do not have a family member or friend at the scene of a heart attack.  The lack of immediate medical attention leaves a frail, elderly person extremely vulnerable to stroke and death.  You can prevent discovering your loved one lying on the floor, unable to call for help, by hiring a highly skilled, seasoned caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Seal Beach who will keep a watchful eye on your elderly family member.  A vigilant caregiver proves helpful when she knows the signs of a heart attack, such as shortness of breath, cold sweat, nausea and chest discomfort.  Oftentimes, a caregiver makes all the difference between permanent paralysis and quick recovery.
