????????????????????????????????????????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.

A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar will not let seniors fall by the wayside.  Hourly and 24-hour caregiver services are available for the elderly who live alone or with their families.  Are you worried if your parents are not eating enough or if they’re not eating the right kind of foods?  Do they seem to forget their medicine or are you sure they’re taking the right dosage?  Dementia Care means taking your loved one to doctor’s appointments or doing exercises that help with memory retention.  Assistance with daily living activities, such as meal preparation with attention to strict dietary needs, bathing, grooming, medication reminders, bill payments, and keeping vigilant watch so that your loved one doesn’t get lost – these are essential components of Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care.

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.

As people age, many of us live in our own little bubble and have limited interaction with the outside world.  Part of it is because their adult children are busy, and another reason is because of the minor aches and pains that might be discouraging them from participating in different activities.  However, group activities with other seniors might just be the perfect way to help them stay active socially and avoid being stressed because of loneliness at home. Here is a few ideas on what seniors can do as a group to spend their free time!

  • Dancing – Dancing is fun, it is social, and it provides exercise to the seniors.
  • Bingo – The quintessential group game for seniors, but seniors find it enjoyable to participate in a group.
  • Bus Trips – Driving may not be possible for seniors anymore with the different ailments they experience, so why not considering taking a field trip on public transport?
  • Gardening – It is not just for your backyard, try beautifying a community garden together!
  • Exercise classes – Stay fit together as a group and live a healthier lifestyle!

Experiences are more fun when it is shared with others, so find group activities around your community to participate in today!

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men.  There are generally two types of prostate cancer – one that grows slowly and confined in the prostate gland, and others that spread more aggressively.  Like other cancers, early detection increases your chance of overcoming the disease successfully.  Because the blood level of the Prostate-Specific Antigen is usually elevated, that’s why PSA testing is one of the main way to catch the disease early.  However, PSA results may lead to something called “overdiagnosis” according to the National Cancer Institute, where treatments for non-life-threatening tumor leads to complications and side effects such as infection, erectile dysfunction, problems with bowel function, and urinary incontinence.

Since we are nearly the end of Men’s Health Month, we encourage all men to talk to your doctor about your need for a prostate exam and PSA test.

Happy senior couple cooking together at kitchen. Focus on man.

There are many diets out there for people to choose from, and it can be overwhelming in which one to choose.  One diet that is seemingly more popular than others is the Mediterranean diet because it is one of the more effective diets in promoting health and preventing disease. This diet is based on the traditional cooking from the countries near the Mediterranean Sea, and it is very similar to other diets because it has the basic structure of being high in fruits and vegetables and whole grains with limitation on unhealthy fats.

The differentiation with the Mediterranean diet is the emphasis on healthy fats.  Whereas we put put butter on our bread, bread is either consumed plain or dipped in olive oil in the Mediterranean diet.  Furthermore, nuts are also an important part of this diet and nuts also contain a high amount of healthy fat.

A diet high in healthy fats from olive oil and nuts and low in unhealthy fats from butter or margarine over means a much more heart healthy diet and it has shown sign to reduce cases of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.  May is National Mediterranean Diet Month, and we encourage everyone to take a look at this wonderful diet and raise awareness of its benefits because reducing the number of heart diseases should be a top priority in this country.

A-1 Home Care in Corona Del Mar has a wonderfully dedicated team of in home caregivers ready to provide their expert support.

There are so many factors to consider when trying to eat health. Many would first consider the taste, then they might narrow down to the ingredients, and so on.  To effectively live a healthy lifestyle, there are several tips that you may want to follow.

  • Take time to enjoy your food –  I always try to taste my food slowly, and try grasp the taste of the food I am eating.  As a result, I tend to eat less and not over-consume.
  • Dominate your plate with fruits and vegetables – You can never eat enough fruits and vegetables, so try to make a conscious effort in eating more by eating half a plate of fruits and vegetables per meal
  • Drink water – There are about 10 teaspoon of sugar in a 12 oz can of soda. That is enough sugar for the whole day! Try to avoid such dramatic sugar intake by drinking water throughout the day.
  • Control you calories- Every person has a calorie level to maintain their body weight.  Over it, and you will gain weight. Burn enough calories, and you will lose weight.
  • More grains – The body handles whole grain products much better than refined products.  Eat whole grain bread instead of white bread, brown rice instead of white rice, etc

These are just some of the many tips of health diets, follow them and you are on your way to better health and a better life.
