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

By having 24 hour in-home care assistance with chores, you or your loved one will have more time to rest and enjoy other things without having to worry about mundane tasks.  There’s no need to burden your loved ones when they are at work; an experienced, highly skilled caregiver is instrumental in establishing a routine for exercise and nutrition so you can feel better sooner.  Peginterferon alfa-2a, a common medication prescribed for Hepatitis C, can cause serious side effects, such as depression, mood/behavior problems, suicidal tendencies and an inclination to relapse if there is a history of substance abuse.  A trained live-in caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Corona del Mar recognizes these symptoms and will alert the rest of the family if there is cause for grave concern.

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.

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.

24 hour care in orange county 2 a1 home care

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!
