Bridging the Social Gap for the Holiday Season in Orange County

Elderly person with nurseLoneliness, depression, seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.) and other negative feelings can cloud seniors’ joy during the holidays.  The passing of loved ones, distance of immediate family members, and inability to commute all contribute to depression in elderly.  This holiday season, A-1 Home Care in Orange County will accompany your loved one at home or at a nursing home, convalescent home, memory care home, or even in distant cities and states.

Dare to Care

Social isolation can either bring depression or deepen depression for seniors who are unable to leave their homes and join friends and family.  A-1 Home Care will help your loved ones connect to friends and family nearby or far away.  If you wish to purchase airfare for your aging parents but are concerned that their dementia may impede their traveling plans, you can hire a traveling companion from A-1 Home Care in Orange County to ensure that they don’t lose their luggage, that they get on the right plane, and that they feel secure from beginning to end.  A highly skilled, experienced and trained caregiver is the right choice for any senior who has Arthritis, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Parkinson’s, or a desire to travel with company.  There should be no reason to spend the holidays without your elderly loved ones because of their health conditions if they are physically able to board a plane.

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.
