How to Make Every Day Feel Meaningful for Your Elderly Loved One

???????????????????????????????????????Do you have an elderly loved one at home who looks bored every time you come home from a long day at work?  When seniors retire from a successful career where they’ve spent three-quarters of their lives, they can feel a real sense of loss, such as losing their purpose.  All their children are grown and leading their own lives, and the retirees don’t have to get up at a certain hour to work anymore.  Maybe your loved ones were asked to retire before they were ready, because their employer wanted to make room for younger talents who have more energy.  So here you are, feeling bad for your parents, yet you’re too exhausted to give much attention to them at all.

A-1 Home Care will find plenty of recreational activities for your elderly loved one around Burbank.  If your parents had to relocate far from their home, they are likely to miss their friends but yet they don’t feel up to making new social circles at their age.  You can have a companion care aide during the day or night to accompany your loved ones on activities such as these:

  • Garden care
  • Visits to the museums, parks or beach
  • Short day trips to destinations that your parents have always longed to visit
  • Traveling companions on farther trips to another state or country
  • Social visits to old friends (it always helps to have a traveling companion during a long trip)
  • Volunteer opportunities at a nearby shelter
  • Arts & crafts activities at a nearby senior center
  • Attending classes at a community center to learn new skills
  • Exploring different restaurants in town

Round-the-clock companion care will take a load off your shoulders, and you won’t have to worry anymore if your loved one needs help with anything.  Companion care will greatly decrease depression and therefore improve physical health.  As one of the few state-licensed agencies in California, A-1 Home Care in Burbank also serves to protect your elderly loved ones from harm, predators, scam artists, theft and fraud.

Burbank Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) Care for Children

???????????????????????????????????????Arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects the joints and is typically associated with older adults over age 65.  However, there is another type of arthritis that affects about 300,000 children in the United States, and it’s called juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA).  Caused by what researchers believe to be an autoimmune attack, JRA causes joint pain, recurrent fever, limping, swollen joints, and reduced range of motion, among other symptoms.  The duration of JRA varies from child to child.  Some have it for a few months, a few years, and sometimes a whole lifetime.  A-1 Home Care in Burbank offers live-in and live-out care for families who have children with JRA.  Our certified nurse aides can help your child improve in school and perform other tasks to reduce or prevent joint damage.

24-Hour Hour Arthritis Care for Children

It’s important for your child to get routine check-ups if you detect early signs of arthritic symptoms.  Early detection improves the chance of remission, but if it’s left untreated until the advanced stages, remission may be slim to impossible.  Advanced symptoms of JRA include joint destruction, uneven limbs, swelling around the heart, and stunted growth.  If you or your spouse cannot take time off from work, a certified home health aide can take your child to the doctor’s for regular check-ups to ensure good health.  Our caregivers are trustworthy, knowledgeable and reliable; A-1 Home Care in Burbank thoroughly screens each live-in and live-out caregiver and investigates their criminal background, sex offender check, and DMV records.
