Home Care Connectors for Seniors in Studio City

Senior Behind the WheelAs you grow older, time becomes more limited and therefore more precious.  A-1 Home Care in Studio City sees to it that the holiday season is meaningful for seniors and their families by bridging the communication and geographical gaps between the elderly and their children and grandchildren.  Driving restrictions, revoked driving privileges, lack of transportation means, or limited mobility and vision should not be a reason why seniors can’t join their loved ones for Christmas or New Year’s.  Let A-1 Home Care in Studio City be your wheels your elderly loved ones!

Common Transportation Issues for the Elderly

Driving is one of the biggest symbols of independence – just ask any teenager.  After years of driving from Point A to Point B, it would be hard for an elderly person to give up driving privileges even though he knows he could be a hazard to other drivers on the road.  With declining mobility abilities and impaired vision, elderly drivers become increasingly dangerous and most of them are reluctant to surrender driving privileges because they don’t want to depend on someone else for help.  A-1 Home Care is a viable alternative to private and public transportation for seniors in Studio City and surrounding areas.  Not only do seniors get to go anywhere they want without endangering lives, but they also receive assistance from a personal home care aide who helps with grocery shopping, navigation, meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, and much more.

A-1 Home Care: Caregiver Service You Can Trust

All caregivers, companions, home health aides and certified nurse assistants are required to pass an extensive criminal background check and DMV check.  No one is allowed to drive if they have a tainted DMV record, and A-1 Home Care’s insurance company would not bond caregivers if they had a questionable background history.  Our home care providers will take you to any local destination in Studio City or nearby cities such as Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Glendale, Pasadena, Santa Monica, and Culver City.  Live-in 24 hour care and hourly care are available 365 days of the year, including major holidays like Christmas and New Year’s Day.

To hire a caregiver, call A-1 Home Care today (818) 980-0094 or visit us online www.studiocityhomecare.com for more information about home care services, elder care services, live-in and live-out care.

24 Hour and Parkinson Care in Studio City

a-1 home care elder care burbank

Never look at clinical trials as serving just guinea pig, because that is certainly not the purpose of such trials.  Many are the final stages of a drug development process, and could be critical in the process of finding a cure for different diseases.  Here are a few facts from the Michael J. Fox Foundation about clinical trials.  Not all clinical trials test new drugs, and some are observational trials aimed to understand the disease better.  In addition, there are also alternative treatments trials such as acupuncture, exercise, and even video games to improve functions of patients .  It is also important to note that participating in clinical trials is supplementing the standard care you are already receiving.  Lastly, participating clinical trail is the equivalent to volunteering, and participants are protected by the patient’s bill of right that enables you to end your participation anytime.

Home Care Assistance for the Newly Disabled in Studio City

disAccidents can happen at any time, at any moment, especially in a busy city like Studio City.  How many people do you hear about who have been killed while crossing the street or were injured in a bad bicycle accident?  The younger you are, the more devastating an accident can be when it changes your life forever.  Going from being independent, physically active and healthy to becoming dependent upon others for basic needs like cooking and toileting can really crush the human spirit.

In the initial stages of a newfound disability, it is important to keep the human spirit alive while taking care of basic personal needs.  If physical needs are not taken care of, then a person’s livelihood can be dampened as he is reminded daily that he cannot do certain things like he used to.  If you have a sibling or parent who recently suffered from a tragic accident, but you are obliged to return to work soon, getting a home health aide for your loved one is one of the best things you can do to empower him.

Aside from assistance with daily living like meal preparation and light housekeeping, caregivers can connect your loved one with the outside world by taking him to social events, meetings, conventions, or even work.  If the family member’s employer allows him to work from home but the new disability hinders him from typing, a home health aide can type or do other things under the care recipient’s direction.  Care recipients often bond with their caregivers on this level of personal care.  By forming a bond, you can create a team that enables your loved one to interact with successful overcomers who have similar disabilities.  Social interaction is key; companions with superb social skills are a compelling link between your loved one’s well-being and empowerment.

Assistance for adults with disabilities is available through A-1 Home Care, a licensed, insured and bonded home care agency that provides all types of care from elder care to postpartum care to disabilities services.  You can expect to receive superior home care support from compassionate caregivers, certified nurse aides, companions, home health aides, and personal care aides.  Our phone lines connect you to a live operator 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for your convenience.

To hire a home health aide today, call A-1 Home Care in Studio City (818) 980-0094 or visit us online www.studiocityhomecare.com for more information.  Service areas include Studio City, Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Beverly Hills, Century City, Culver City, Glendale, Pasadena, Van Nuys, Burbank, and other cities throughout Los Angeles County.

Sleep Better for Healthy Aging

a-1 home care preventing arthritis

Everyone wishes to age well, but healthy aging remains a mystery to many people. However, many are not getting a good night sleep to achieve their goals. Sleeping is essential for everyone, young or old.  Despite older adults tend to sleep less hours than younger folks, their body still needs the same amount of sleep to recharge.  Since seniors tend not to sleep as long during the night, they make it up by taking naps during the day time.  This is fine except it interrupts the sleep cycle and eventually will disrupt your sleep at night as well.

Not sleeping well can cause many problems, and it affects your body, your health, and ultimately the way you age.  For instance, you may feel depressed and irritable, and are less energized and more prone to falls or accidents, and even cause memory problems.

Best thing to do is to set a sleeping routine.  Do something relaxing before going to bed to get ready to sleep like reading a book, listening to music, or even just taking a shower to get comfortable.  It is also important  expose yourself to the sun from time to time because our internal clock dictates our sleeping as well.  Finally, it sounds like common sense, but keep your bedroom dark and comfortably warm to make it easier to fall asleep.

Sleeping at one’s own home is most likely easier than in an assisted living facility as well, so why not find a home care service that will provide direct support for seniors at home rather than moving them into a nursing home?  A-1 Home Care in Studio City has been in business since 1991, and we understand what it takes to find the best quality caregivers.  Our personalized services include Post Surgical Care, Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson Care, Multiple Sclerosis Care,Incontinence Care, Arthritis Care, Heart Attack Care, Cancer Care, and other elderly care services.  We serve the cities of Studio CityBurbank, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Sherman Oaks, Santa Monica, Glendale, West Hollywood, and many more cities in the Los Angeles andOrange County.
