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.

Right now, Southern Californian residents are in the middle of summer and it is getting hot. It’ll only be getting hotter come August, leaving its resident finding more and more creative ways to beat the heat.
