hospice care orange county a-1 home careGobble, gobble!  Don’t get a heart attack after feasting on that big turkey this Thanksgiving holiday!  Over-indulgence on high-fat gravy sauce, butter, and other delicious fatty foods can cause heart burn and heart attack.  The hospital is the last place where you want to end up during the holidays.  A-1 Home Care in Downey will send a caregiver your way to accompany you or your loved one on one of these family excursions and monitor your food intake.  If you are hosting a family dinner and your elderly loved one is on a special diet, A-1 Home Care’s home health aide can take care of the meal planning on this day while you take care of the rest of the family.

Thanksgiving Tips for Seniors

A caregiver or companion can be a cheerful addition to your elderly loved one’s holiday if he or she does not have any family members nearby.  A-1 Home Care in Downey can be your extended family if for any reason you are not able to spend time with your elderly loved one.  Our home health aide will prepare a nutritious, low-calorie, low-fat Thanksgiving meal for your elderly loved one and his or her friends, or they can simply enjoy a meal together.  The caregiver can do a calorie count and be mindful of your loved one’s health.  In the morning, noon or night, our certified nurse aide will also monitor medication intake to ensure that your parent or grandparent is taking meds in a timely manner.  Our caregivers can also manage flu symptoms or ease depression during the seasonal blues.  Stay healthy, stay connected, and stay ahead of the game.

Arthritis Care at Home

a-1 downey arthritis

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.
