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

a-1 home care elder care sierra madreExercising is more than a lifestyle; it’s a mindset.  Everyone knows that physical exercise is beneficial and necessary to stay healthy, but does that mean that everyone is doing it?  Of course not.  You either believe in it or you don’t.  For the gym rats who have been exercising for most of their lives prior to dialysis, getting diagnosed with kidney disease is one of the most disheartening events in life, and there may not be too much support in the community where you live.  In addition to symptoms like nausea, shortness of breath, and chronic fatigue, you might experience side effects like neuralgia from taking medication.  A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar provides full Kidney Care support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

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.

a-1 home care corona del mar cancer careImpairment is defined as “a significant deviation, loss, or loss of use of any body structure or body function in an individual with a health condition, disorder or disease,” according to the sixth edition of the Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment published by the American Medical Association.  Oftentimes the terms “disabilities” and “impairments” are used interchangeably, but the distinction between the two is this: an impairment creates the disability, whether that impairment is physical, mental or psychological.  Chronic health conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Lou Gehrig’s and Parkinson’s disease are often associated with physical disabilities.  A-1 Home Care provides high quality 24-hour disability assistance for adults and seniors around Corona del Mar.

????????????????????????????????????????Hepatitis C, a virus infection of the liver, affects about 3.2 million people in the United States and approximately 150 million people around the world.  Symptoms are so unnoticeable that many pass off fatigue, depression or nausea as signs of something else.  You can get Hepatitis C from a variety of things you do without thinking, such as changing a diaper, getting a manicure or pedicure, or eating contaminated fresh fruits and vegetables.  Sharing drinks, nail clippers, toothbrushes and other personal items puts you at risk.  If the infection gets worse, you could experience pain in the abdomen, swollen blood vessels in the skin or jaundice and loss of appetite.  A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar provides round-the-clock in-home care assistance so you can rest during your recovery.

Live-In Care Improves Physical and Emotional Health

a-1 home care arthritis food corona del marAlthough strokes are common among the elderly, an estimated 18 in 100,000 cases of Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are diagnosed in young children and adults under age 40, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).  Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are the most common cause of strokes for the younger population, and when left untreated, this condition of tangling blood vessels could lead to death.  For years, doctors have reluctantly treated patients with AVMs due to the risks of treatment, but a recent study shows that not treating AVMs is far riskier than treating the condition.  If a blood vessel ruptures, the individual may suffer from seizures, physical weakness, blindness or other neurological deficits if not death.  Symptoms of AVMs are not readily apparent until a tangled blood vessel ruptures.  Is your son or daughter complaining a lot about headaches on one side of the head, or is there numbness on one side of the body?  A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar strongly recommends a medical check-up before anything serious happens.

 

If you have a loved one at home who is suffering from symptoms such as vision loss, numbness or paralysis, speech difficulty, or severe unsteadiness, A-1 Home Care will help you with activities of daily living, such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, chores, transportation and companion care.  A highly skilled caregiver who lives in your neighborhood in Corona del Mar or surrounding areas can take your loved one to medical appointments or out on social visits.  You can choose from a variety of in-home care options such as 24 hour care, part-time live-out care, and temporary respite care.

????????????????????????????????????????Aside from commonly known factors that contribute to dementia, such as alcohol consumption or smoking, being too skinny could also be to your detriment, according to a study in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology publication.  How does one define “being underweight”?  With a Body Mass Index [BMI] of less than 20 kg/m2, your chances of developing dementia are 30% higher than those with a healthy weight or even those who are overweight.  The link between weight and dementia remains unclear, but until researchers figure that out,  the professional team of caregivers from A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar will see to it that your elderly loved ones have their full course meals each day.  Home care is more than just providing companion care; it’s about ensuring excellent follow-up so that your loved one is always living to his fullest potential.

Not everyone in this country lives near their aging parents. Some of which are separated by thousands of miles across each coast of the country. It may be difficult to give care when the distance is that far apart. However, thanks to the power of the Internet, it is possible to check on the aging parents regularly in an more interactive way. In this MSNBC article titled “Millions Now Manage Aging Parents Care Afar“, it discussed about how Skype, a video telephone service is making it easier for someone to check on their loved ones from afar, and that can give the elderly a peace of mind that is often ignored.  Of course, many seniors do not understand the digital world as well as most of us, but with some patience, these communication services can be taught  in time for the purpose.

If you have loved ones who live in the Corona Del Mar Area, A-1 Home Care in Corona Del Mar offer 24 hour live in home care for seniors, as well as other services such as cancer care, hospice care, after surgery care, diabetes care, and other senior care services.  With caregivers all over Los Angeles and Orange County, we also serve communities such as Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, Irvine, Santa Ana, and others. We have serviced families from many multicultural backgrounds, including Jewish, Asian, Middle Eastern, and continue to provide diverse caregivers for our clients.
