From fine dining to gorgeous hiking trails, Glendora has it all. When you are a senior living in an assisted living facility it is easy to get to get caught up in all the activities provided for you within those four walls. Next time you find yourself with nothing to do, ask your caregiver to take a stroll with you through the streets of Glendora.

Things to Do In Glendora with your Caregiver

There you will find delicious waffles and full breakfast items as well as some delicious coffee. Afterwards, support your small businesses and take a look at the surrounding shops. Ask your companion to look up the Glendora website to see if any events are expected to happen during the day.

Shop at the Glendora Promenade

Parkinson’s Disease is one of the common diseases that Elderly and Senior people suffer from.  The progressive disease affects a person’s muscle movements over time, making it difficult for them to walk, talk, and smile.  It happens because nerve cells in the brain are destroyed, which limits the production of the chemical dopamine – which is essential for sending signals to the part of the brain that control movement.  Although dopamine substitutes in the form of medication are available and work for the short-term, the body eventually becomes used to the drug and it doesn’t help anymore.

A-1 Home Care provides compassionate and experienced in-home care for individuals with Parkinson’s in the communities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Duarte, Burbank, Azusa, Covina, Diamond Bar, and other cities in Los Angeles and Orange County.  We offer caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who have experience with Parkinson’s Care and other services such as Alzheimer’s Care, After Surgery Care, Hospice Care, and Incontinence Care.

We have been in business since 1991 with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau and Shield Accreditation.  All of our caregivers must have prior experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check and DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

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.
