Diabetic Care for the Holidays in Huntington Beach

Having Diabetes shouldn’t stop you from leading an active lifestyle and especially not during Christmas.  Just think, there are professional football players who have Type 1 Diabetes, and football is a very rigorous game.  Diabetes occurs when your body can no longer maintain the proper blood sugar level due to the body’s inability to create insulin or the body’s immunity to insulin.  Insulin is vital in distributing glucose from the blood stream to all the cells in the body.

A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach provides Diabetic In-Home Care services for Elderly and Senior individuals.  Our caregivers and nurse aides can help your loved one monitor their blood sugar levels and have the experience to help your loved one find the right balance of a healthy diet, medication, and exercise.  This article on FamilyDoctor.org provides advice for Elderly and Senior individuals who have questions about exercising with Diabetes.  It includes examples of some exercises you can do at home, with pictures that illustrate the exercises.  Your local community center or fitness center may have a Diabetes exercise program as well.

The importance of exercise for Elderly and Senior individuals on a daily basis can never be overemphasized, because it’s that important for your loved one’s overall health.  Even if your loved one is bogged down by a chronic illness such as Arthritis or Diabetes, stationary exercises are alternatives to walking long distances.  Exercise is beneficial for bettering self-esteem, easing depression, and relieving stress or anxiety.  When you don’t have time to help your loved one exercise, one of the caregivers from A-1 Home Care can help.

We are a non-medical homecare agency that specializes in Elder Care services ranging from basis Companion Services to more advanced medical conditions such as Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Post Stroke Care, Incontinence Care, and Hospice Care.  One of the problems with Elderly exercise is convincing your loved one to partake in the exercise routines on a daily basis.  Whether it’s laziness or no motivation, it’s not hard to find an excuse not to exercise.  Our caregivers can provide motivation for your loved one to exercise by providing encouragement and participating in the exercise routines right alongside them.  For an idea of what kind of exercise our caregivers can help your loved one participate in, whether they have mobility issues or not, check this article titled Chair Exercises & Limited Mobility Fitness.
