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.

Arthritis Care at Home

Arthritis can cause so much pain that it interferes with a person’s life. As a caregiver, what can you do to help relief some of that pain? There are many changes you can help implement to decrease the level of discomfort for a loved one or client.

Healthy Lifestyle

Maintaining a healthy weight is very important for someone suffering from arthritis. The excess weight a client or loved one might carry can put extra stress on the joints thus making the deterioration or inflammation worse.  Encourage your loved one to implement a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis and rest when needed to stimulate the muscle around the joints.

Protecting the Joints

Protecting the joints from further deterioration is important. Modify activities if certain activity hurts the client or loved one’s joints. Refrain from putting pressure on the joints, use healthier and stronger joints to help lift objects or activities. Avoid activities or exercises that can cause inflammation or worsening of the joints.  You can help relief pain by applying heat or cold to the swollen or painful joints.
