Caregiver Service in Christmas for Downey Seniors

If you are looking for some extra 24 hour holiday help to caregiver service for your senior loved ones on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, look no further than A-1 Home Care for seniors in Downey and surrounding areas.  Family caregivers often stress out during the holidays because there’s not enough of them to run around and meet everyone’s needs.  From gift shopping to family dinners, being a host or traveling across the country can be quite stressful for family caregivers and their loved ones.  A-1 Home Care provides traveling companions for your elderly loved ones who want to see their children and grandchildren in distant cities and states.  We also provide local Christmas help to deck the halls of your own home with boughs of holly.  

What kind of help can I expect?

Seniors with health complications need extra undivided attention.  Timely and accurate doses of medication, special diets and toileting care are part of the home care package.  If you’re running around like a chicken with its head cut off during Christmas season, paying careful attention to detail will pose as a challenge for you if you have a ton of things on your plate to think about.  Leave Christmas caregiver service to A-1 Home Care in Downey, where we will wait on your elderly loved one hand and foot!  If you need overnight care, incontinence care, arthritis care, Alzheimer’s and Dementia care or any other type of elder care that may impose extra pressure on you during the holiday season, leave it to us to take care of you and your loved ones.

Be Prepared - Hire a Caregiver

If you're like most people, you would rather not think about the possible options available after experiencing any kind of accident or disaster. Many people would prefer to avert their attention to the more optimistic possibilities that can arise out of any situation. It's an understandable attitude, but one that will not help once an accident does hit. And though we, from A-1 Home Care, wouldn't wish any ill outcome for anyone, we certainly do understand that disasters can happen. We've learned that and much more from serving LA and OC residents since 1991 and one of the most important lessons our clients show us is that it is always good to be prepared. 

Imagine if an accident struck you or your loved ones. Whether it's something like a sports injury or an injury from an incident on the freeway, it will undoubtedly be more difficult to go about your daily life in the next few days or months. Traveling around the house and outside will no longer be as simple as stepping out the door. Instead it could be exhausting and downright painful. That's why residents in Downey are prepared for such incidents and call us right away to assign them an in home or live in caregiver. Trained to administer After-Surgery Care, care for sports injury or Respite Care, our 24 hour in home helpers are capable of handling whatever case heads their way.

Senior Care with Fun Summer Actitivies

With summer in full tow, it’s hard not to get excited about the activities that are available this season. There’s hiking, swimming, and all sorts of outdoor activities that are available, but what about for seniors and the elderly? Because their bodies may not be physically able to endure such outdoor events, they may feel a little isolated from the norms of summer fun, but it doesn't have to be that way. There are many ways to enjoy the summer with elderly loved ones and here are some of them:

DIY Projects:

DIY is great for bonding with your senior loved ones. DIY (or do-it-yourself) can range from knitting to somewhat more complicated projects like photo magnets.  

Take a stroll on the beach or a round in the park – Not only could this benefit your loved ones as a form of exercise and physical therapy, it’s also a nice time for catching up!

Storytelling :
This takes literally no effort from both parties and it’s also a chance to let your loved one shine. Learn a little more about what it was like to grow up in a different time and make new memories at the same time!

A-1 Home Care and its staff & caregivers know all about the issues concerning seniors and the elderly, including the need for companion care, the potential for Alzheimer’s and Dementia and the demand for in home and 24 hour care. We dedicate ourselves to proving quality and professional home health aides to live in and service the elderly in their homes. Not only do we promise professional senior caregivers, but we promise to deliver all facets of care, including but not limited to Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Heart Attack care and more.

Arts & Crafts Day Trip to Downey Care Center!

This afternoon, a few of us from A-1 Home Care- Jackie from Marketing, Janette from Recruiting, and Hanna from Social Media, went to Downey Care Center to lead an Arts & Crafts lesson with the elderly residents there. We understand that while staying at a convalescent hospital isn't all fun and games, it's refreshing to take a dip in the creativity pool and lose yourself in art.

Everyone gathered around to decorate tasseled bookmarks. We used markers, patterned cardstock, glitter stickers, and foam stickies to make customized artworks. Everyone decided between keeping them for themselves or giving one away as a gift for a friend.

We made friends!

At the end, A-1 Home Care has a tradition of raffling names for a great prize at the end. Betty the winner was so surprised to win this great basket of cookies, cheeses and other snacks. We were thrilled to see her smile so widely!

Glaucoma Awareness Month/ A-1 Home Care Downey

 Glaucoma describes a group of eye conditions that affect vision. It may affect both eyes and each eye may progress in a variable way. The primary feature of glaucoma is high interocular pressure. This increase in pressure may cause progressive damage to the optic nerve and loss of nerve fibers. Vision loss may result. Advanced glaucoma may even cause blindness. 

Not everyone with high eye pressure will develop glaucoma, and many people with normal eye pressure will develop glaucoma. When the pressure inside an eye is too high for that particular optic nerve, whatever that pressure measurement may be, glaucoma will develop.

A-1 Home Care provides trusted in home eldercare in the cities of Downey, Norwalk, Lakewood, La Mirada, Cerritos, Long Beach and other cities in the Los Angeles County and Orange County. Our agency is A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau and has provided care for seniors since 1991.
