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
