a-1 home care homecare corona del marDoes your elderly loved one live alone?  Is she active, independent and healthy, refusing any help even though you see a need for assistance?  If you feel a growing, gnawing concern in the back of your mind that someday she will need it (and need it soon), then you can rest assured that help is available.  No matter how old you get, you will still need at least a companion to drop by and check in on her.  If your loved one lives alone, she may not notice signs of dementia in herself.  What if she starts posting notes on the mirror and the walls for herself so she won’t forget simple things like turning off the faucet?  You won’t be there to see it, especially if you live out-of-state.  If you live nearby, depending on how often you visit your parent, grandparent or relative, you may not notice the daily subtle changes that are taking place.

As Alzheimer’s & Dementia progresses, it becomes an unpleasant experience for family members to live with, if they decide to move in with their loved ones or have their loved ones move in with them.  Hiring a senior caregiver, companion or certified nurse aide to deal with the difficult and aggressive behavioral changes seems like the most sensible solution.  A-1 Home Care provides assistance with meal preparation, housecleaning, laundry, bathing, grooming, transportation and companionship.
