It can be difficult to know how to deal with Cancer, especially for friends and family.  How do you approach it?  Are you supposed to feel and display pity or support?  The answer is support.  It’s important to be real about Cancer and not be afraid to talk about feelings.  The most important thing you can do is listen to what your loved one has to say and provide as much emotional and physical support as possible.

This video titled How to Deal with Someone with Cancer provides 8 tips that will improve the coping abilities of yourself and your loved one.  One of the tips ‘Don’t Fake It’ talks about the importance about being real about Cancer.  “Most Cancer survivors say that the people who try to pretend nothing is wrong make them feel worse than the people who acknowledge their disease.  It’s a mistake to avoid talking about Cancer, and it’s equally wrong to say everything’s going to be alright.”

At A-1 Home Care, we can provide you with a compassionate in-home caregiver who has experience caring for individuals with Cancer.  Whether your loved one is recovering or terminally ill, our caregivers can provide the best support at any stage of the disease.  We can assist with personal care services such as personal hygiene & grooming, medication management, preparing healthy meals, and also provide emotional support and motivation for your loved one to get up and get some exercise or participate in other activities.

Does your Elderly or Senior loved one know how to properly shop for healthy products at the grocery store to prepare meals?  Sometimes, interpreting the labels on food packaging can be difficult and tricky, especially when your loved one has Diabetes.  Even if they don’t, it’s important to eat properly to prevent future complications and risk of heart disease, Diabetes, obesity, and other debilitating conditions! This article titled Taking the Mystery Out of “Nutrition Facts” provides some very basic guidelines to help you shop for groceries with nutritional knowledge and less trickery.  For example, trans fat and partially hydrogenated vegetable oil are good to stay away from.  Sodium content should not exceed the calories per serving, and a heavy sugar intake stresses your body’s ability to maintain a healthy blood sugar level.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide compassionate 24 hour caregivers in Glendora who can assist with responsible grocery shopping, meal preparation, and other tasks.  We specialize in Elder Care services ranging from basic Companion Services to more specialized care services such as After Surgery Care, Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Hospice Care, Post Stroke Care, and Incontinence Care.

Do you ever get the feeling that your Elderly or Senior loved one has lost some of the spark they used to have when they were younger?  For example, your father used to get excited about going golfing every weekend and always was able to bring up interesting topics for discussion, but now it seems like he never has anything to say when you visit.  Elderly individuals go through significant change as they age and may embrace some of the stereotypical myths that are associated with Elderly individuals.  This has a negative impact on your loved one and their quality of life.  To understand what your loved one may be going through and to help them lead a more fulfilling quality of life, check out this article titled Healthy Aging Tips.  It talks about some of the myths associated with Elders that aren’t true, such as the inability for them to learn anything new.  It covers everything from keeping your loved one healthy with nutrition and exercise, socializing, coping with change, and participating in various activities for leisure.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide experienced and compassionate in-home care for Elderly individuals and aging seniors.  Whether your loved one is healthily aging in place, but needs a companion or if they’ve lost some of their independence and need a compassionate and experienced caregiver, we can help.  We specialize in services ranging from basic Companion Services to more advanced care such as Arthritis Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Parkinson’s Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, and Post Stroke Care on a 24 hour live-in care or hourly care basis.

If you don’t see your Elderly parent often, it can be difficult to know how they are really doing.  Especially if you visit only a couple times a week or less, they may be unhappy and you wouldn’t even know it.  If your Elderly loved one is depressed, they might lie when you ask how they are doing to prevent you from worrying.  There are ways to tell if something isn’t right, however.  If you notice any differences in the way the home is being kept – such as dirty dishes or laundry piled high, a dusty floor, or things lying around, something may be wrong.  If you notice a change in your loved one’s physical appearance or personality, something may be wrong.  Depression causes fatigue, loss of appetite, loss of interest in activities, among other signs.  If you suspect depression in your loved one, take them to see your doctor immediately, even if the symptoms seem minor.  Depression is detrimental to your loved one’s health.

One of the causes of depression in Elders is social isolation and not having a supportive social network.   When your loved one is alone, sometimes too much time can result in too much negative thinking.  When you can’t be there for your loved one at all times, perhaps an in-home companion can work to lift your loved one’s mood.  A-1 Home Care provides compassionate and qualified caregivers, companions, and nurse aides who specialize in making your loved one feel loved and excited to participate in various activities.  We offer companions who are available on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly part-time basis.

All of our caregivers, nurse aides, and companions must have prior work experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

When you’re looking for the perfect caregiver for your Elderly or Senior loved one, it’s important to have questions established that will enable you to determine whether the candidate is a good fit for your loved one or not.  If possible, it’d be a good idea to find out beforehand what personal traits your loved one desires in a caregiver and have them be present during the interview.  If they’re unable to be present, have another family member or friend present so that you can have some secondary feedback.  This article titled Senior Caregiver Interview Tips provides a list of questions that you can use when you interview different caregivers.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide compassionate caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who must have prior experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.  Our caregivers are available on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly part-time basis.

When an Elderly individual reaches end of life, which is characterized by doctors as having the life expectancy of six months or less, they have the option of fighting the illness until the very end or taking an approach that focuses more on quality of life, emotional support, and pain management.  The latter approach is known as Hospice Care.  Choosing Hospice Care doesn’t mean that you’ve given up on trying to save your loved one.  In many cases, Elderly individuals who have chosen Hospice Care have outlived their life expectancy.  This article titled Hospice Care – Considering Hospice Care provides some reasons why you might consider Hospice Care for your loved one.

Have you recently been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes?  Diabetes occurs when your blood glucose levels are too high because your body has stopped making the chemical insulin or has stopped responding to it.  Your body needs insulin to distribute glucose to your cells from your blood.  Without it, glucose stays in your blood and the cells in your body starve, causing complications such as fatigue, weight loss, blurry vision, hunger, thirst, and excessive urination.

The first thing you need to do is work with your health care provider to develop a plan where you can learn what you can eat without raising your blood sugar levels too high and commit to a daily exercise routine.  DiabetesForum.com is a great resource for individuals to read informative articles about Diabetes and engage with other web surfers on a variety of Diabetes topics in the forum section such as symptoms, treatment, and diet and nutrition.  If you have any questions, you can post it in a forum category and be sure to get a few responses.
