http://www.dreamstime.com/-image14319070

A patient with Alzheimer’s disease may experience changes in the cognitive functions, behavior, and or mood. They may experience difficulty with understanding, delusion, and confusion which can cause frustration, aggression, and irritability. Feeling discontentment, apathy, and or loneliness is also prevalent. It can progressively become more difficult for the patient to do simple tasks such as cooking, light house cleaning, laundry, or running errands.

Huntington Beach Cancer Care: The Mystery behind Cancer Growth

a-1 home careHave you ever wondered how cancer cells proliferate so quickly?  A person diagnosed with malignant cancer has cells that feed on glucose, the main “food” that fuels the rapid spread of cancer throughout the body.  According to McGill University, cancer cells are reported to use glucose “at rates tens or even hundreds of times larger than that of normal cells.”  When glucose is scarce, cancer cells use an enzyme to feed on other nutrients in the body to grow.  While researchers are finding ways to stop cells from producing this enzyme, we can do our part by watching what we eat, especially if we are at risk for any kind of cancer due to lifestyle, environment, or genetics.  A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach offers high quality in-home cancer care for those who are going through chemotherapy.

The side effects of chemotherapy take a toll on the cancer patient’s emotional and mental health while causing physical discomfort, such as diarrhea, nausea, constipation, mouth and throat sores, and fatigue.  The stress of caring for an elderly loved one with cancer will wear you down over time; when you start to feel overwhelmed, you should look into live-in or live-out cancer care at home.  Self-care means hiring a competent, trained caregiver who will lighten your burdens so you can rest while they wait on your elderly loved one hand and foot.  If you feel bad about hiring outside help, your guilt will melt away when you see the level of superior cancer care delivered by A-1 Home Care’s certified nurse assistants who live locally in Huntington Beach or neighboring cities.

Huntington Beach Home Care: The Right Kind of Alzheimer’s Care

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image14319070Professionalism, experience and competence are extremely important traits of a caregiver, especially when caring for a senior who has Alzheimer’s Disease.  The aggressive symptoms of this disease, such as angry outbursts, verbal abuse, maybe even physical attacks, can erode a caregiver’s motivation to provide excellent senior care after some period of time.  A seasoned home care companion from A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach knows just how to calm an agitated older adult, thereby reducing one’s own stress on the job.

If you live at home with an elderly loved one and just want some relief, A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach offers hourly and 24-hour professional Alzheimer’s Care.  In addition to providing assistance with cooking, cleaning, bathing, grooming, transportation and more, live-in caregivers are excellent companions, not just for the older adult, but for the whole family as well.  Full-time adult children can have a good night’s rest for the next working day, so they can continue to financially provide for elder care.  When you hire a certified home health aide from A-1 Home Care, you also get protection and security that come with licensed, bonded and insured home care agencies.
