Caregiver Can Help Seniors Improve Both Body and Mind

A-1 Home Care therapeutic exercise

Research has shown that there is growth in brain neurons after a few days or weeks of regular physical activity.  So does this mean exercise can help improve a person’s cognitive functions?  In a study, the fittest individuals scored the highest in coordination, scheduling, planning, and memory.  Furthermore, there is a 35% lower occurrence of dementia for those who walk at least three times a week. While these are not definitive proof that physical exercise leads to benefits in cognitive functions among seniors and elderly,  it is still making a strong case for such theories.  Whether or not it helps improve your cognitive function, regular exercise should still be in everyone’s routine to live a long a healthy life!

Safety Solutions for Seniors in Downey

Everything seems a bit more difficult as we age.  Whether it is reaching up to the cabinet, sitting down on a toilet, or simply putting things back into the refrigerator, moving around just don’t seem like what it used to be.  According to WebMD, there can be many tweaks around the house to keep seniors and elderly mobile and independent.  For example, switching out doorknobs and faucets for lever handles, which makes opening and shutting something that can be done with the whole hand instead of relying on stiff fingers from arthritis.  Secondly, a curbless shower can eliminate the need to step over something to get into the shower, and a shower chair along with a handheld shower head can make showering much easier.  Lastly, store the more used items like glasses and dishes on lower cabinets, thus the individual does not have to reach up to get the item.

In home caregivers like Josephine Bryant and Thalia Alonso from A-1 Home Care are experienced and dependable in any home care scenarios, including but not limited to Arthritis Care, After Surgery Care, Parkinson’s Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, and Post Stroke Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.  Licensed, bonded, and insured, A-1 Home Care has be a trusted source for experienced caregivers for over 20 years.  Whether your loved ones reside in Downey, Norwalk, Lakewood, Whittier, La Mirada, Cerritos, Long Beach, Santa Fe Springs, Covina, Diamond Bar, San Dimas, La Habra, Yorba Linda, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Pico Rivera, and others in Los Angeles County and Orange County, we can provide the compatible care professional you are looking for.

Care at Home for Seniors & Elderly in Downey

Baby boomer populations are increasing, but doctors who are treating this demographic is not growing at the same rate, or even declining.  Health care is one of the most important issues pertaining to seniors & elderly individuals,  and the shortage in doctors serving this population is a real concern. Currently, there are about 7000 certified geriatricians according to Telegram News.  However, estimation is that the demand is around 25,000 by the year 2025.  One reason for the shortage is because they deal with complex patients with multiple medical problems like arthritis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer, and others, which also require more time to deal with the elderly patients. As such, it reduces the number of patients they can see, thus less compensation for their work. If you are part of this elderly population, or have loved ones who are, while it may be becoming more difficult to find a geriatrician, efforts are providing more funding to produce future generations of doctors who will specialize in this field.
