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.

Be a Good Samaritan This Month

During the holidays, we especially enjoy hearing about Good Samaritan stories. Just recently, A-1 Home Care heard a story on the news about Don Holder and Dorothy Shepard. Don Holder was an off duty cop in Texas who would often come across 77 year old widow Dorothy Shepard in his neighborhood. Suffering from many health issues, she  was left on her own to recover from surgery. left on her own  When he went to visit her while she was in the hospital, he gave her his cell phone number in case she ever needed his help. After that, he would be seen around town helping Dorothy with errands such as grocery shopping. And what’s most admirable of all is that the officer didn’t seek to gain fame or attention through his acts. In fact, he hadn’t intended that this story be heard, but it wasn’t until this photo was captured by a bystander at a  grocery story that his act of kindness became known.

It’s amazing that even amidst the disgusting show of violence that we see from police brutality, there are still those who will go out of their way to do something kind for another.
