Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Available 24 hours in Covina

A-1 Home Care Understanding & Support

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a form of dementia that currently has no known cure.  Researchers theorize that seniors develop Alzheimer’s when their brains accumulate a build-up of proteins called amyloid plaques in the hippocampus, a region of the brain that encodes memories.  In addition to affecting memory, Alzheimer’s disease also shuts down other parts of the brain that control decision-making and mental acuity, which affects daily living.  As AD progresses over time, the elderly lose the ability to cook for themselves, get dressed, or go anywhere without getting lost. If your loved one or family member has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, it may be time to consider receiving in-home care from a professional personal care assistant. A personal care assistant can provide care for your elderly loved one or family member giving you peace of mind while maintaining their independence.

We are licensed by the state of California and all of our personal care assistants are state registered Home Care Aides.

24 Hour Companion Care: Reach Out and Touch Someone

a-1 home careThere is healing power in the sense of touch, and if your elderly loved ones are not receiving any form of physical contact in the form of a hug, hand-holding, massage or other form of contact, they are being deprived of much needed care and attention.  According to the National Institutes of Health, physical touch releases a hormone called oxytocin which diminishes stress levels and blood pressure while elevating good moods and tolerance for pain.  Seniors need more undivided attention as they age, especially if they live alone.  A-1 Home Care provides excellent 24 hour companion care for families in Covina.

 Live-In Companion Care with a Touch of Compassion

The human capacity to connect with others is nourished through physical contact such as a hug.  It is so important that doctors recommend regular massages for seniors because massages have the same effect as other gestures of physical contact.  It eases arthritis symptoms and sends subliminal signals of affection to your elderly loved ones.  Live-in companion caregivers cannot replace family members but they can provide a level of affection in their absence if your elderly loved one’s spouse or friends are no longer around.  A-1 Home Care’s companions treat your loved ones as their own, forming long-lasting bonds that transcend beyond the call of duty.

Covina After-Surgery 24-Hour Care for Adults and the Elderly

a-1 home careThe first 24 hours after surgery are critical for the patient.  Surgeons usually do not release a post-operative patient until they know that a family member or caregiver is present to take care of their loved one for the first 24 hours after the operation.  Post-surgery care services generally involve pick-ups and drop-offs at the surgery site, 24-hour monitoring of the incision, change of bandage, wound care, and assistance with chores like cooking, cleaning, bathing, grooming, and personal careA-1 Home Care in Covina provides short-term and long-term after-surgery care, depending on your level of needs and type of surgery.

24-Hour Surgery Care at Home in Covina

For first-time surgeries, patients are naturally full of questions about what to do once they arrive home.  Are they taking sufficient care of their wounds?  Do their family members know what they’re doing?  Do they feel confident about the assistance they’re receiving with regard to wound care?  What happens if their incision starts bleeding?  Is that cause for worry?  Having a live-in certified nurse aide around the house alleviates a lot of anxiety, not just for the patient but for the whole family.  A-1 Home Care’s certified home health aides and nurse assistants are fully knowledgeable in best practices for wound care.  If an untrained friend or family member attempts to care for their loved one’s wounds but inadvertently manages it improperly, it may prolong the recovery period, causing delay in healing.

Professional In-Home Care Shortens Recovery Time

According to research studies, a large percentage of wounds remain unhealed due to ineffective post-operative management.  In the long run, it costs you more money and elongates your elderly loved one’s suffering if you try to apply wound care on your own with cursory knowledge of post-surgery care.  For 25 years, A-1 Home Care has helped countless families with 24-hour in-home care assistance, which includes meal preparation, light housekeeping, bathing, grooming, personal care, transportation, and companion care.  Because of our outstanding in-home care and affordable rates, our clients continually refer friends and families to A-1 Home Care.   Customer satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!

Early Monitoring Prevents Dehydration in the Elderly

a-1 home careEarly detection of dehydration in the elderly plays an important part in deterring the onset of other health complications, such as kidney failure, seizures, or swelling in the brain.  It’s difficult to diagnose dehydration in older adults for lack of obvious symptoms, so it is critical for a family member or live-in caregiver to take an elderly loved one to the doctor’s for timely checkups and early treatment of dehydration whenever possible.  The risks for dehydration increase with age, as aging changes homeostasis of fluid balance; seniors also become less thirsty as they get older.  Poor cognitive function has been associated with high degrees of dehydration, especially in long-term care facilities.  A-1 Home Care in Covina guards against senior neglect with high quality 24-hour in-home care.

Round-the-Clock Care at Home While You’re Away 

If you work full-time and have a family of your own, you may be too tired to recognize abnormal signs in your elderly loved one when you’re at home, especially if you have not received formal training in the medical field.  Would you be able to recognize symptoms of dehydration in your parents or take time off from work to help them?  A-1 Home Care in Covina has a vast array of live-in caregivers who are trained to recognize symptoms and take action.  Examples of dehydration symptoms include dryness of mouth or dry tongue, inability to urinate, headaches, cramping in limbs, crying with little or no tears, and low blood pressure.  Our 24-hour caregivers will take vital signs and help with cooking, cleaning, bathing, grooming, personal hygiene and transportation.
