Corona Del Mar is a beautiful city, neighboring Newport Beach and the San Joaquin Hills. Although, the city is known for its gorgeous beach scenery, sometimes the beach and plazas can be overcrowded or in the summertime, it is just too hot. And these conditions can, sometimes, become a life-threatening thing for some of our senior patients at A-1 Home Care agency due to recovery or side effects from medication(s).

That is where the indoor activities come in handy. One of the popular and to go-to task is watching television, whom most of our Corona Del Mar seniors find easygoing and relaxing, considering that they can stay in the comfort of their own home to do so. Here are some recommended TV shows to get started on (or finish) and binge-watch…so far (Newsday, 2017):

Our caregivers are here to monitor what should and should not watched, as requested by our seniors’ loved ones. We understand the importance of what might be too much or even too scary for our seniors to view. And with twenty-hour hour in-home care, our caretakers will be monitoring more than ever, in addition to their other daily tasks around the house.

Today in America, it is becoming more and more commonplace for adult children and family members to serve as primary caregiver to an ailing loved one.  Compounded with balancing the obligations of running errands, staying on top of concerns with wellness and at the same time maintaining a household, the double workload can become overwhelming for some.  What may prove even more stressful is grappling with the notion of hours of alone time your loved one may be looking at in the absence of yourself or other family members.  Things like “fall-risk” come to mind or not being able to manage medications without supervision.  This is where A-1 Home Care really shines-we deliver elder companion care, in home companion, live-in companion and other companionship services with a caring, compassionate touch to ensure the safety and well-being of your loved ones

A-1 Home Care Agency is proud to provide companionship services to relieve some of the stresses that come from taking up the role of primary caregiver.  Our loving and expertly trained team will make sure no one has to exist in fear of ever being alone in a time of need or having to go without day to day support for activities of daily living.  Companion care can actually refer to a wide range of duties such as handling household tasks, assisting with physical activity as well as nurturing much needed personal interaction which may see a decline in senior years.

Each and every senior companion professional is ethnically diverse, always affordable and dedicated to care and compassion.  Our mission is to not only remove any uncertainty with leaving older loved ones alone, but to nurture and encourage the overall wellness of the patient.  Social interaction can do so much for not only retaining but also regaining fuller cognitive function.

a-1 home care homecare corona del marIf you feel pain at the base of your skull or in the back of your neck, you may have occipital neuralgia, a condition characterized by inflamed or injured nerves running from the spinal cord through the scalp.  Other symptoms may also include sensitivity to light, headaches, migraines, tender scalp, and pain during neck movement.  Because it is often confused for other types of headaches, doctors cannot detect a cause for it.  Up to this point, you may have had otherwise good health, but if these symptoms have been occurring lately, you may want to get a medical opinion before things get worse.  This condition has also been associated with the following:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Head trauma
  • Neck tumors
  • Infection
  • Diabetes
  • Cervical disc disease
  • Blood vessel inflammation
  • Gout

Staying Motivated to Exercise with Companion Care

If exercising was not your part of your lifestyle prior to the diagnosis, it’s never too late to begin a routine or program.  Bring a live-in caregiver with you to the doctor’s before you partake in vigorous activities.  In addition to increased energy levels, you’ll also experience the following benefits of exercise:

  • Decreased level of cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Better weight management
  • Improved muscle strength
  • Better sleep

Doctors usually recommend that you exercise in 30-minute increments or less, depending on your strength and energy levels.  If you start feeling chest pain, dizzy, or other symptoms that make it difficult to exercise, you should stop right away and not over-exert your body.

During the times when you feel too exhausted to do anything, you can rely on a helpful 24-hour caregiver to assist you with meal preparations, light housekeeping, errands and transportation anywhere in Corona del Mar and beyond.  Round-the-clock caregivers are especially instrumental when you need help going to the doctor’s and it’s too unsafe for you to drive on your own.

hIf you have not taken any steps toward self-care, it’s time to start now.  A-1 Home Care applauds you for your efforts in caring for your elderly loved one.  As many families can attest, providing assistance with daily tasks such as meal preparation, overnight care, and toileting care can take a toll on your physical health, especially if your loved one’s condition is such that you have to stay awake all night to ensure your loved one’s safety.  Over a period of time, when your body’s stress response system is stimulated day after day, night after night, you will experience some of these long-term effects:

All of the aforementioned diseases have been linked to high levels of interleukin 6 (IL-6), an immune system protein that’s activated in response to trauma, stress, cancer and infection.  One study showed that family caregivers had a 63% higher death rate than their counterparts, and about 70% of the caregiver participants passed away before the study was over.
