In Home Care services are not always permanent arrangements. Many times, a client may be recovering from Surgery and be in need of extra support while family may be unavailable. Having a trained and experienced Home Care Professional assist with recuperation can really help along the process and prevent readmissions. This not only includes when the patient comes home, we are able to provide Hospital Sitter services if your loved would benefit from some additional personal care while in recovery. Our friendly and helpful Caregivers can even be utilized for safe transportation to and from the procedure. They never have to be alone. Cosmetic surgery patients who may not have their full faculties available after an operation can certainly benefit with a helping hand around the house.
Many of the Short-Term services available can used to help transition those back into their daily routine by providing Non-Medical Home Care assistance. If driving ability is impaired, we can help with that also ensuring safe transportation to doctor visits, picking medication or even visiting loved ones! Schedules can range from Hourly, Live-In or Round the Clock Care.
If you find yourself shouldering the load caring for loved one in need of extra attention, it may be time to look into our Respite Caregiver Relief. The introduction of a Short Term Caregiver into the home can not only speed recovery but also prevent further injury. Having that Companion Care during this time can not only provide peace of mind but also greatly benefit the patient.

Do you find yourself tired often? Are you getting enough sleep? Did your doctor mention that working out could help with that…
It was recently reported that more than ninety-seven percent of Americans are said to be “unhealthy.” Approximately fifty percent are obese. The scary part is that one does not have to be obese in order to be “healthy.” Often, most doctors encounter with many people who are patients of all ages who are within their weight zone or even underweight and are in the red zone of being unhealthy.
Not only does a healthy lifestyle consist of a balanced diet or protein, grains, fruits, and vegetables but also physical activity.
Here, at A-1 Home Care, our caregivers have also become companions to many of our seniors due to participating in many activities, including work outs. It is something that our certified caretakers take upon, after they usually consult with their patient’s doctor to see what is a great daily exercise. An opportunity such as working out together does form a strong bond amongst our rooster of caregivers and seniors. It is why our companion service has become more popular over time.
Some fun work outs that most of our seniors find useful and pain-free are (NIH, 2017):
Life is stressful and often, a majority of people let it get to them and, sometimes, it can “ruin” their day or throw them off schedule. When it comes to one’s health, it is said that to be the number reason why people are often triggered by high stress. Especially, if it is for seniors. A-1 Home Care, a caregiver agency located in the Inland Empire, Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino County, specializes in this area of helping seniors to overcome any anxiety, depression, and stress matters. We provide the tools to manage these, if they do arise for our seniors. With our in-home services, it can be in the comfort of our seniors’ homes.
So, what are some ways to overcome a hard day or a stressful reaction to an outcome?
To deal with it, even if that means taking a break from the daily routine. Our in-care services are also companion related where our caretakers not only look out for the safety and health of our seniors, but build a trust and mutual respect for a lifelong relationship. In other words, our caregivers also hang out with our seniors.
That is why spending the day elsewhere, besides at home, is a good contribution to one’s health. Studies have shown that going somewhere such as the beach helps reduce stress due to the fresh air and sunlight. It is something that our caregivers would consult with the senior’s doctor before going.

According to Web MD, approximately 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease annually. Parkinson’s occurs when there is a problem with certain nerve cells in the brain that normally make an important chemical called Dopamine, which sends signals to the part of your brain that controls movement. Parkinson’s disease affects the way you move and can reduce longevity. It can also affect a patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living such bathing, grooming, getting dressed, cooking, cleaning, and running errands. Not only do these activities become more difficult, but they can be dangerous as well.

Have 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.
