Affordable 24-Hour In-Home Care for Patients with Acute Kidney Injury

a-1 home care cancer orange countyAcute kidney injury (AKI), previously coined as acute renal failure (ARF), is a health condition whereby your kidneys suddenly can no longer filter waste through the blood.  The statistics for the occurrence of AKI after hospitalization are scary:  in the United States, only 1% of the population admitted to a hospital have AKI.  The percentage goes up to 2-5% during hospitalization and rises to 21% after patients receive a kidney transplant.  There is a steep rise in intensive care unit (ICU) patients, where the percentage shoots up to 67%.  Signs of AKI include, but are not limited to, the following: decreased urine production, nausea, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, loss of appetite, and pain in the flanks.  A-1 Home Care in Studio City is committed to delivering superior in-home care services for patients with all types of kidney failure.

Stuck between a Rock and a Hard Place: The Working Family Caregiver

a-1 home care cancer orange countyYour filial piety calls you to care for your aging parents, but you need to stay employed to make ends meet, not to mention provide for your parents’ needs.  Many family caregivers feel stuck between a rock and a hard place, because they don’t know the resources that are out there for their elders.  The sandwich generation – adults who care for their children as well as their aging parents – costs employers approximately $34 billion a year, according to the National Alliance for Caregiving and the MetLife Foundation.  Hiring live-in care for the elderly reduces absenteeism and may even raise productivity because family caregivers would get enough rest for the next day of work.  If you are looking for in-home care you can trust, look no further than A-1 Home Care in Studio City.

 

By 2020, one in three families will have elder care responsibilities as the aging population explodes.  Some may find themselves frantically search for a caregiver due to an unexpected event such as a sudden fall or hospitalization.  Referrals from friends are not always a reliable source of information, because friends don’t usually conduct criminal background checks on anyone.  Newspaper or online independent advertisements are also a sketchy source of caregivers.  However, if you find a highly skilled and compassionate caregiver from a licensed, bonded and insured agency like A-1 Home Care in Studio City, you are in good hands!  Busy families have turned to A-1 Home Care for over 25 years, thanks to the quality of elder care given by our caregivers.  It’s no wonder families refer relatives and friends to us!

 

Established in 1991, A-1 Home Care has been serving all of Los Angeles County, in cities like Studio City, Universal City, Hollywood, Burbank, Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Glendale, and neighboring cities.  A variety of live-in and live-out caregiver services are available to meet your every need, based on the level of care, budget and schedule you want.  There is no need to worry about the cost, since A-1 Home Care also offers affordable financing options; there’s no reason why any senior should be left out because of money!  A-1 Home Care also accepts Veteran Benefits and long-term care insurance.

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.
