Caregiver Service in Studio City

a-1 home care newport beach elder care

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.

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.

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.
