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.

We always hear about high cholesterol when discussing around the topic of senior and elderly health, but what exactly is cholesterol and how having a high level can affect our health?  To understand its effects, we must first know how cholesterol work within our bodies.  According to the NIH Senior Health Page, cholesterol is a waxy/fat-like substance produced by the liver, circulates throughout the body in the bloodstream to help make hormones, digest food, and allow cells in the body to work properly.  However, if the cholesterol level is too high, buildup of cholesterol called plaque can occur.  For seniors and elderly, the advanced age means the higher chances and longer period for plaque to grow, thus possibly leading to diseases such as artherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, angina, and heart attack.  An important thing to note is that there are no symptoms for simply having high cholesterol, so knowing your cholesterol number is vital to preventing heart diseases.

Cancer can struck anytime on anyone, but studies have shown that there are those who are in higher risk for certain cancer like prostate cancer than others.  Here are a four major factors you or your loved ones should be aware of according to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.  First is age.  The average age of diagnosis for prostate cancer is 69 years old in the United States.  Next is the race of the person.  Statistics have shown African Americans are more likely to develop prostate cancer than other race groups.  Conversely, Asian men have the lowest risks if they live in Asian, for those who have moved west to the United States, their risks have increased.  Family history is also an indicator for risks in prostate cancer.  If a father or brother has previously been diagnosed with the disease, and when such diagnosis were at an younger age, risks become higher for the individual.  Lastly, the geographical difference of groups also mean different risk levels.  As mentioned above Asian males who have migrated toward west have a higher risk than those who do not.  For example, those who live in China has a 2% chance of getting prostate cancer, whereas those living in the United States have a 17% of getting the disease.  Understand these risk factors can help with motivation with an open dialogue with the doctor and early screening.
