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.

Life with Bipolar Disorder

Up’s and down’s are a part of life. For those dealing with Bipolar Disorder, these times can be especially hard. According to WebMD, Bipolar Disorder is defined as a “mood disorder” characterized by dramatic, sometimes uncontrollable mood swings. Suffers switch between debilitating depression and manic episodes that can cause insomnia, hallucinations, psychosis, grandiose delusions, and/or paranoid rage.

Diagnosis is the First Step

Many people who have been recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder struggle with the stigma of having an illness. Oftentimes they reject the diagnosis and refuse treatment and medications. Accepting the disease and knowing that help is available is a life-changing first step toward breaking free from the cycle of constant up’s and down’s.

Caring for Bipolar

Caring for a loved one with bipolar disorder is no walk in the park. Finding the perfect balance between being supportive and sympathetic takes tremendous patience and proper knowledge of the disease. Knowing the signs and symptoms can help you recognize emotional changes and make a big difference in your overall quality of life.

Living a full, happy life is possible with bipolar disorder.
