A-1 Home Care Elder CareLosing one’s driving privilege is one of the hardest things for the elderly.  A symbolic rite of passage, it signifies a transition from independence to dependence, amplifying one’s sense of personal inferiority associated with aging.  However, when a senior’s health conditions become an endangerment to others on the road as well as to himself, it’s time to take the keys away no matter how manipulative the loved one can get.  Tantrums, threats of suicide, stubborn refusal to surrender the keys, abusive name-calling and other aggressive behaviors can be very intimidating to a family member who’s not used to the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia, but a seasoned caregiver is no stranger to this scenario.

 

If you’ve already had a difficult conversation with your elderly loved one and it didn’t go well, don’t beat yourself up.  Recognize that it’s the illness — Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia — that impairs your elderly loved one’s judgment about his own driving abilities.  It’s never too late to call on A-1 Home Care to meet your parents’ transportation needs.  A highly skilled and experienced caregiver can help you confront resistance whenever your parent or grandparent’s behavior gets aggressive.  In-home care also entails meal preparation, bathing, grooming, personal hygiene, companion care, and more.

 

A-1 Home Care in Glendora conducts thorough DMV checks, criminal background investigations, and professional reference verifications.  Because it’s licensed, bonded and insured, A-1 Home Care’s certified home health aides (C.H.H.A.s), certified nurse assistants (C.N.A.s), licensed vocational nurses (L.V.N.s), domestic care workers and hospice care aides are extensively screened for senior safety.  Not only are our caregivers highly skilled and experienced, they are part of A-1 Home Care’s team because of their compassion and unique talents they bring to the table.  A-1 Home Care brings exceptional caregiving services to communities in Glendora, Azusa, Pasadena, San Dimas, Hacienda Heights, and other cities in Los Angeles County.

a-1 home care los angeles live in caregiverDid you know that there are certain types of neurons that act like an exfoliator or garbage disposal?  To stay healthy, your brain has to get rid of old, damaged proteins, and this is accomplished by protein complexes called “proteasomes,” which grind up old proteins and recycle them into new ones, according to a study published on Nature Medicine.  When someone has a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s, the worn-out, damaged proteins accumulate in the brain because the proteasomes are not doing what they’re supposed to do.   A team of researchers discovered a drug that may activate the proteasomes in the human brain, but until now, they haven’t found anything yet that is safe for human consumption.  As researchers continue to find clues to diminish the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia, A-1 Home Care is committed to delivering exceptional senior care to families in Glendora and neighboring cities.

 

Family caregivers who take care of aging loved ones with Alzheimer’s often experience burnout.  Their minds are restless with concern over whether their loved ones will wander away from home while they’re asleep; their sleep is often interrupted because their elderly loved ones have to get up frequently during the night to use the restroom, and the stress of caring for the loved one takes a toll on the family caregiver’s mental and emotional health.  A-1 Home Care in Glendora provides 24-hour care for seniors, which includes round-the-clock assistance with meal preparation, bathing, light housekeeping, overnight watch, transportation, medication monitoring, and more.
