As your elderly loved ones enter into their senior years, they become more at-risk of sustaining injuries that could be detrimental toward their health and their quality of living. Not only are they more susceptible to damages from falls, but their internal health can be easily affected by a diet lacking in proper nutrition. While younger people are virtually untouched by a nutrition-less diet, seniors must ensure that they have their daily intake of calcium and other essential vitamins and nutrients so as to prevent bone deterioration, liver diseases, and Diabetes. As a result of their vulnerability to these issues, the need for surgery to replace a broken hip or make any other health adjustments can be common among the elder community, and while it is done for their benefit, the process of recovery can often be a long and arduous one.

As a caregiver agency, A-1 Home Care is dedicated to providing Post-Surgery caregivers who will make the recovery process a pleasant and comfortable one. Our caregivers are trained to see to your needs around the home, including meal preparations, personal services, light housekeeping, and assistance with muscle strengthening exercises to promote recovery. Being incapacitated after surgery can sometimes make one feel alone in their recovery but with a caregiver around their home to see to their needs and share companionship, the journey to recovery can pass very quickly and with hopeful prospects.

As a License-Bonded and Insured non medical home care agency, A-1 Home Care provides caregivers and caregiving services specializing in Elder Care, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care, Diabetic Care, Incontinence Care, In-Home Care, and 24 Hour Care.

If you or someone you know are in need of post-surgery care, you can inquire about services in your area by calling our office at 626 287-0250 or visiting our agency online at Glendora In-Home Care.

You can also look for our caregiving services throughout other communities in the Los Angeles including the cities of Glendale,  Monrovia, Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Covina, and San Marino.

Have you ever had the pleasure of hearing your elderly grandparents tell you about their lives when they were younger? Seniors truly do have amazing stories to tell, ans that’s not surprising at because, after having lived on this planet for a lifetime, they likely have a couple of interesting and rich stories to tell. Photographer Tom Hussey’s photo series, Reflections, conveys this idea. In this series, a part of which you can see in the photos below, seniors look back at themselves in the mirror and see a pivotal point in their lives, whether it’s during war, graduation, or in their glory days.

This is why storytelling with seniors vastly distinguishes itself from typical storytelling. Senior have lived and breathed the stories that are told and often still see themselves as that character no matter how many  years have passed. It truly is a wonderful experience to hear and see.

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.

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.

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.
