Villa Park Home Care: Curing the Holiday Blues for the Elderly

cropped-dreamstime_m_181079891.jpgWhile the world rejoices around the holiday season, making vacation plans and visiting friends and family, seniors who are limited by disease or lack of mobility are suffering from the holiday blues, more so than any other time of the year.  Even if the elderly are not living in a nursing or convalescent home, if they cannot drive or travel far, the only option they might face is spending the holidays alone, especially if their spouse has passed away.  The cold season may aggravate symptoms of arthritis, gout, or just plain physical discomfort.  Losing one’s independence may have been the hardest thing to face this year, and the holiday season serves as a harsh reminder that they are no longer mobile or as healthy as they used to be.  A-1 Home Care cares for seniors and their families in Villa Park and all over Orange County.  Don’t let your loved ones spend the holidays alone; hire a competent live-in caregiver who will be a positive distraction from negativity.

 

Elder Care in Villa Park Eases Loneliness

Do you know the signs of depression in the elderly?  An intuitive, seasoned companion care worker responds effectively to signs of depression such as loss of appetite, insomnia, loss of interest in recreational activities and lack of interest in socializing.  The more one alienates oneself from others, the deeper one sinks into depression.  With a caring and competent caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Villa Park, you can help prevent depression in your elderly loved one.  The presence of a caregiver will add warmth to the home, and you won’t have to worry that your parent or grandparent will be alone this holiday season.  The right caregiver will know just how to cheer your loved one up!  Elder care is available for 24 hours a day or a few hours a week; we revolve around your schedule and needs.

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.
