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.

24 Hour Home Care in Huntington Beach

It’s not uncommon for Elderly individuals to be very pessimistic with a negative outlook on life.  Many Elders are going through heavy emotional battles, trying to cope with their deteriorating health, the loss of loved friends or a life partner, loneliness, and there may be many more things bothering them.  Still, being able to communicate effectively with a loved one is very important.  One of the common ways an Elder person avoids talking about a topic is by talking about something else.  When this happens, tell your loved one, “I’d like to talk about that also but separately.  First, let’s figure out what we want to do about this issue.”

At A-1 Home Care, we understand that as your loved one ages, you worry about their well-being at home.  We offer experienced and compassionate in-home care services in Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, Irvine, and others in Orange County and Los Angeles County.  All of our caregivers, nurse aides, and companions must have prior experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check and DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability Insurance, First aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

In this video, Selena Esparza talks about her whole experience with cancer and how alone she felt in the hospital during the treatment.  “For anyone who is going through cancer, be strong – and whatever it is that makes you happy, that comforts you, that is soothing for you, get it,” she says.  Selena’s comfort were the dolls she had with her when she was in the hospital.

Post Stroke Care

Stroke is a terrible attack on the brain that affects the family just as much as the victim.  When blood circulation is cut off from the brain due to a blood clot, the brain is deprived of oxygen and can result in minor to severe damage.  Memory, movement, and speech/language can be affected, depending on the part of the brain that was damaged.  The main causes of stroke are high blood pressure, smoking, obesity, lack of physical activity, high cholesterol, diabetes, stress, depression, and heart disorders.  It’s important to lead a healthy lifestyle at all times.

This inspirational video tells the stroke survivor story of Cody Dietz, a teenager who could’ve died from stroke if he wasn’t treated immediately with brain surgery.  The doctors said he wouldn’t be able to speak for a year, but it took him a month.  The video also tells the difference between a heart attack and a stroke – though both vascular events, a heart attack gives chest pain, yet a stroke often isn’t painful.  Kathy Morrison, RN of Penn State Hershey Stroke Center says to remember the word F-A-S-T, which stands for Facial Weakness, Arm Weakness, Speech Problems, Time to Call 911.

If your loved one has suffered a stroke and is ready to come home, let our non-medical homecare agency provide you with a compassionate and experienced caregiver, nurse aide, or companion who can tend to your loved one’s every need and ensure that they don’t fall – as many stroke survivors suffer from balance problems.  We offer Post Stroke Care services on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly part-time basis and can start providing in-home care immediately.

Parkinson’s Care for Elderly, Senior, and Terminally Ill

Parkinson’s Disease is a neuro-degenerative disorder that affects movement.  The disease breaks down nerve cells – which produce dopamine, a chemical in the brain that transmits signals to the part of the brain responsible for muscle movements.

It’s a “relentless foe, handing out its challenges one by one” as journalist Dave Iverson says in his documentary that strives to understand Parkinson’s Disease.  Iverson beautifully crafts a video that provides a glimpse into his life and his family’s history with the disease.
