24 hour care in orange county 2 a1 home careCurrently, there are approximately 5 million seniors in the United States who have some form of dementia, and those numbers are expected to triple by 2050.  In the June 2016 publication of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, research suggests that seniors as many as 2.5 million Americans have undiagnosed dementia, which means that the elderly engage in potentially unsafe activities like driving, cooking, and taking wrong doses of medication without realizing it.  The responsibility becomes incumbent upon family members to recognize signs of dementia in their elderly loved ones so they can get the proper care at home.  A-1 Home Care provides such in-home care at low cost in Corona del Mar and other parts of Orange County.

Do you know the signs of dementia?

Aside from the obvious signs of forgetfulness, how can you tell if your elderly loved one is being absent-minded or really developing dementia?  Here are some telltale signs that should signal medical attention:

  • Trouble with self-expression
  • Disorganized thinking
  • Impaired balance
  • Hallucinations
  • Personality changes (e.g., increased aggression or reclusion)
  • Difficulty with movement
  • Sleep disturbance

A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar offers flexible scheduling with live-in and live-out care.  As your elderly loved one’s needs change over time, we can adjust our caregiving services to extend or decrease hours of in-home care as you need them.  Round-the-clock senior care entails assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, companion care, transportation, personal care and more.
