Finding out that you’re about to lose someone you love can be one of the most difficult and painful feelings a human can experience.  There are a roller coaster of emotions you may feel when going through the grieving process including shock, disbelief, sadness, guilt, anger, and fear.  These are all normal feelings, but the most important thing you need to do is know how to cope appropriately with the support of friends, family, and outside help if needed.

A-1 Home Care is a non-medical homecare agency that provides experienced and compassionate Hospice Care on a 24 hour live-inbasis or hourly part-time basis.  Hospice Care is becoming a more widely accepted and popular form of care for its quality of life focus and focus on relieving physical pain.  It differs from life-sustaining treatment because it does not seek to find a cure for the illness.  We offer Hospice caregivers, nurse aides, and companions in the communities of Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa,Newport Beach, Los Alamitos, Garden Grove, Seal Beach, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar, Irvine, and others in Orange County.

A-1 Home Care is Licensed Bonded and Insured, has an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau, Shield Accreditation, and has been in business since 1991.  If your loved one has long term insurance, we accept Penn Treaty, CALPERS, John Hancock, MetLife Insurance, Veteran Administration, and Bankers’ Life & Casualty.

Brain Teasers Proven to Help with Senior Mental Health

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are ways to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and lower the chances of developing it as well. Despite there being no known care yet, medical studies have made a lot of advances that could eventually lead up to finding one. One piece of important evidence that has been discovered is that regular mental stimulation can potentially lower the risk of seniors to develop such mental degenerative diseases.

What constitutes as mental stimulation? Anything that encourages thinking beyond the basic scope of intuitive or instinctive thoughts. So this could include puzzles and riddle solving games. A simple and fun game like Sudoku or solving a crossword puzzle would encourage thinking and problem solving. Basically it would give the brain some exercise, and any form of exercise, mental or physical, is a good thing. Just try this one on for size. How many horses are there in the picture?

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.

So what is an elderly resident to do, if he or she would like to cool off without fear of having to go back out of the sun? After all, seniors are more at risk of suffering from exhaustion and dehydration under a brutal summer heat, so what other options are there?

As an agency dedicated to providing professional Senior Care, we, at A-1 Home Care, like to provide as much resources as we can. Along with 24 Hour and in home caregivers, we like to offer useful tips to help the elderly community. That’s why we hope you can make use of this wonderful recipe that seniors and caregivers can make together.
