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.”

Nutrition plays a large role in the healing process of individuals who have undergone a surgery.  An article on after-surgery nutrition by Krista Scott-Dixon PhD titled Post-Surgical Nutrition: Speed Your Healing with a Good Diet and Supplement Plan provides a nice anecdote about her friend who was in the hospital, whom she cared for by bringing her nutritious meals instead of letting her eat the hospital food, which is usually high in saturated fat, low in fiber, lacks fruits and vegetables, and bad for your overall health.  Scott-Dixon makes an effort to suggest supplements and foods that facilitate healing.  Some of these supplements include glutamine, omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics, glucosamine sulfate, and turmeric and foods include fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants and fiber, whole grains rich in fiber, and chicken, lean beef, fish, and eggs rich in protein.

When you have an Elderly or Senior loved one who has diminishing health or a chronic illness, you may have experienced difficulties while dining with your loved one.  On a day out in town, you may have gone to a restaurant and your loved one barely touched their food.  You might’ve prepared a meal for your loved one and they showed a lack of interest in eating.  These situations are common and there can be many reasons for your loved one’s loss of appetite or refusal to eat.

This article titled Why Elderly People Don’t Eat provides 10 logical reasons why your parent might be struggling to eat and what you can do about it.  Some reasons include a reduction in the senses of taste and smell, medication side effects, constipation, and problems chewing.  Eating is essential for your loved one to get all the nutrients they need in a day.  Good nutrition is vital for maintaining strong bones, immunity, and facilitating the job of various medications in the body.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide caregivers who can assist with healthy meal preparation and motivating your loved one to eat when they’re supposed to.  Some Elders can only handle snacking and eating small portions throughout the day while other Elders normally have breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  If you’re concerned about the types of food your loved one eats, you could benefit from getting advice from a registered dietician who could set up a meal plan for your loved one and ensure they eat foods that are nutritionally well-balanced.

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.

Speaking with an Elderly parent about emotionally loaded topics can be difficult if you haven’t fine tuned the skill of communication.  Making communication a skill means that you get the results you want, whether it’s agreement or finding solutions to difficult situations.  When done wrong, relationships can turn sour and any chance of communicating with that individual can be blocked off.  This article titled The Do’s and Don’ts of Communicating with Aging Parents would be an excellent read to plan a difficult conversation that you’re about to have with a loved one.  Be sure to pay close attention to the bullet points as those are the tips for Do’s and Don’ts.

Hiring a caregiver for in-home care can be a difficult conversation to have with your Elderly loved one because it involves having a stranger come in to provide living assistance when your loved one may not want it.  Be sure to address the benefits of in-home care, including why it would benefit both parties.  For example, you can tell them that it would give you greater peace of mind to know that they are safe and are less likely to suffer from an accident or fall.  You can tell them that daily tasks will become much easier and that most household tasks will be taken care of by the caregiver.

At A-1 Home Care, we can provide experienced and compassionate caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who are available for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care.  We specialize in Elder Care services such as Alzheimer’s Care, After Surgery Care, Arthritis Care, Parkinson’s Care, Hospice Care, and Post Stroke Care.  We serve the communities of Glendora, Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Altadena, Diamond Bar, and others in Los Angeles County and Orange County.

Does your Elderly or Senior loved one spend a lot of time sleeping or watching TV?  Too much of those activities isn’t really healthy for anyone.  The kinds of activities that benefit Elderly individuals are those that mentally stimulate the mind or require movement.  If your loved one seems stressed or depressed a lot of the time, perhaps they don’t have enough activities in their daily life to occupy themselves with.  Or perhaps they need a companion to share the experience with.

This article on LoveToKnow provides a list of fun activities that you and your loved one, or your loved one and one of your caregivers, can participate in.  It’s always good to get some fresh air outdoors and your loved one might enjoy bird watching or gardening.  Puzzles, painting, knitting, and playing computer games can help stimulate the mind.

Surviving and recovering from a stroke is a miracle in itself.  Strokes are the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States.  Also known as a “brain attack,” a stroke can affect your movement, memory, emotions, and speech/language abilities.  It can completely wipe out your memory so that you don’t know how to do simple things such as make a pot of coffee.  It can make you incapable of carrying a simple conversation or understanding what someone is telling you.

This video tells the story of Wes Varda, a 31 year old man who suffered a stroke in his brain stem area.  The stroke negatively affected his ability to move and speak and he had to relearn those skills.  Miraculously, 10 months later, he was speaking and walking again after being rehabilitated in a wellness center.  “The hardest part was not being able to talk or communicate – and just laying there.  I couldn’t tell anybody how  I was feeling or ask anybody how they were doing,” Wes said.

A-1 Home Care is a non-medical caregiver placement agency that provides Post-Stroke Care on a 24 hour live-in basis or hourly part-time basis.  Our caregivers, nurse aides, and companions can assist with doctor’s orders or instructions for home care from your loved one’s physical, occupational, or speech therapist.  We can transport your loved one to medical or therapy appointments, assist with dressing, undressing, getting in and out of bed, personal hygiene and grooming, meal preparation, exercise, and other activities of daily living.

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.
