Drugged Driving is Equally as Dangerous as Drunk Driving

????????????????????????????????????????

Although a DUI is often associated with drunk driving, DUI means driving under the influence, whether it is through alcohol or drugs.   There are often campaigns to raise awareness to stop drunk driving, but “drugged driving” inherits similar dangers.  According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 16 percent of drives during weekend, nighttime are tested positive for either illegal, prescription, or over the counter medications, and 11 percent are positive for illicit drugs.  Furthermore, 18 percent of the drivers in fatal accidents are tested positive for one or more drug, legal or illegal.  As a result, there needs to be an increase in public dialogue about “drugged driving”.  And if you have loved ones who are abusing drugs, encourage them to receive treatments.

Caregiver Service in Studio City

The key to improving the quality of life for someone with Alzheimer’s is to plan ahead, understand the disease and the strategies in meeting the caregiving needs. Here are a few tips from the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America to guide you toward success when you are faced with such circumstances.  First is to educate yourself about the disease to give you an expectation of what you might deal with when caring for your loved ones. Next is to learn caregiving techniques that can address safety, communication, and behavioral challenges.  Another important factor is the necessity to take care of your own physical and mental health while providing care.  Caregiver burnout is becoming a bigger problem as many do not take time for themselves, and eventually fails to provide proper care as they are too exhausted to apply the skills in caregiving. It is also a good idea to discuss your situation with friends and families to have a reliable support system when needed.  Lastly, you are doing this because you love the person, so keep smiling out of your kindness, and think positive to provide the strengths you need to get through difficult times.

If you don’t think you can handle caregiving duties, or there is simply not enough time to do so, A-1 Home Care in Studio City offers experienced and skilled caregiver service for seniors needing Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson Care, After Surgery Care, Incontinence Care, Arthritis Care, Cancer Care, and other elderly care services.  We serve in the surrounding neighborhoods of Burbank, Glendale, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Malibu, Sherman Oaks, and many more cities in the Los Angeles and Orange County.

Dive into a New Form of Exercise

a-1 home care altadena elder care

The older we get, the more reluctant we are to get on our feet.
In fact, those over 65 tend to spent up to 10 hours inactive per day, making this the most sedentary age group. Muscle strengthening, coordination, and endurance are all important aspects that factor in to daily living and can prolong a healthy life and independence. An upcoming exercise that reduces that fear of injury doesn’t actually take place on land, but in water. Due to the buoyancy, the water can carry up to 90 percent of your body weight and allow better circulation which in turn lubricates the joints and provides a cushioning. Those with medical conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis  who face difficulty in getting exercise should consider water aerobics as a solution. Additionally, the benefits double than that on land. Because of the density, the water’s resistance engages the muscles allowing for a more fulfilling work-out.

Remaining active is vital to perform even the simplest tasks such as turning your head to check a blind spot or play with your grandchildren. For those who face adversaries in keeping up with day-to-day routines, A-1 Home Care in Studio City can resolve the issue. Licensed, bonded, and insured, we provide qualified caregivers such as Tony A. Open 24/7, our services can be found all around Southern California such as Encino, Sherman Oaks, and Hollywood. Our care ranges basic to special needs like Parkinson’s care, Dementia care, and after-surgery care.
