Caregiver Service After Surgery in Orange County

Medication Supervision

Unfortunately, the Lakers season just ended by the San Antonio Spurs.  The disappointing season can be attributed the the various injuries that many players sustained during the season, and none of which was more impactful as Kobe Bryant’s torn Achilles.  It was a devastating news for the city of Los Angeles and Lakers fan, and it put such injury into the spotlight.  With recovery expected to be 6-9 months for Kobe Bryant, the road to recovery is going to be long and difficult.  The process after surgery cannot be handled alone, friends and families are needed at times like this to provide physical and morale support.

For other surgeries like knee and hip replacements, which are more common among seniors and elderly, recovery and support are especially important.  Their body is fragile, many have other pains and ailments to deal with, and because of their older age, they do not heal as quickly after a surgery.  So if you have elderly loved one going through similar surgeries, be prepared to provide the love and support they need to help with the recovery process.

Due to the decrease in cognitive function from Alzheimer’s, daily routines such as eating might become a difficult task to perform for those suffering from the disease.  One could be overwhelmed by the choice of food, or forget that he or she needs to eat.  Using forks and spoons might be just as much of a challenge because of the decreased brain and body function. So here are a few tips from the Alzheimer’s Association to make meal time a bit easier to deal with.  In today’s world, many watches television when they eat dinner.  However, for an Alzheimer’s patient, that could be very distracting to a point where it agitates them.  The placement of food on the table can also mean the different between eating and not eating for certain Alzheimer’s patients.  Lastly, it is important to be patient and supportive throughout the process.  Being flexible in their food preference as well as giving them time to eat enables them to process the situation much better than otherwise.

Young-Onset Parkinson’s

We typically associate Parkinson’s disease with people that are elderly because the average age of a Parkinson’s diagnosis is around 62 years old. However, when a person is diagnosed before the age of 50, it is called a Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease. Unlike the elders who have Parkinson’s, those with Young-Onset usually have slightly different symptoms progressions. For one, they have a slower rate of the symptoms progression, as well as the lower rates of dementia.  However, they have a increased rate of dystonia and dyskinesias according to the National Parkinson Foundation. Whether if your loved one was diagnosed at an later age or have Young-Onset Parkinson’s, it is still important to understand the difference as you could give the patients the proper care that they vitally need.

A-1 home care in Orange County offers affordable and quality services in Parkinson’s care. In addition, we provide in home care services such as live in caregivers, non-medical home care, after surgery care, and alzheimers and dementia care. From Newport Beach to Corona Del Mar, Huntington Beach to Costa Mesa, we have the caregivers around the neighborhoods of Orange County to provide you the quality service you and your loved ones need.

Exercising With Arthritis

Many do not associate arthritis with exercise as exercise can cause pain for those with arthritis. Though it might cause some pain, moderate amount of exercise can actually be good for the joints. The condition of the arthritis should also be taken into consideration when patients are participating in exercises. There are different exercises for different stages of arthritis. If the arthritis is in a severe condition, try water therapy. Water therapy lowers the pressure put on the joints and reduces the level of pain. Stretching exercises helps reduce stiffness around the joints. Strength and endurance exercises builds and strengthen the joints.
