Parkinson’s In-Home Care: Get Yo’ Yoga On in the Comfort of Your Own Home

a-1 home care temple city home careAccording to a survey from the National Institutes of Health, yoga is recognized as one of the leading alternative therapies for Parkinson’s disease.  An online news article reports that the results from the University of Minnesota’s experiment with yoga’s effects on osteoarthritis were so promising that they are conducting the same experiment with Parkinson’s patients.  The participants of the osteoarthritis/yoga experiment improved in their mobility and their fear of falling decreased.  Researchers hope to achieve the same result with those suffering from Parkinson’s.  Studies show that yoga visibly reduces tremoring and increases steadiness in walking.  Good news for you: you don’t have to commute to a class for yoga practices; A-1 Home Care has a team of certified home health aides who have experience in physical therapy, and they can help your elderly loved ones practice yoga in the comfort of their own home!

High Quality 24 Hour Parkinson’s Care

Each year, about 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a neurological disorder that impairs muscle movement and causes loss of voluntary movement.  The onset of Parkinson’s is usually within the age range of 40-50.  Among its symptoms are depression, dementia, hand tremors, shuffling gait, and muscle stiffness.  A caregiver from A-1 Home Care will come to your home, either as a live-in or live-out caregiver, and assist your loved one with yoga exercises to improve breathing, flexibility and strength.  In addition to quality companionship, your loved one will benefit from daily assistance with cooking, cleaning, bathing, grooming, and transportation around Burbank and beyond.

In-Home Care Assistance for Today’s Higher Hour Caregivers

parkinson care burbank a-1 home careToday’s higher hour caregiver is the person (usually female) who provides unpaid care for an elderly loved one at home for at least 21 hours a week.  Many family members make adjustments at work, either by cutting back on their work hours or transitioning into telecommuting in order to meet the needs of elderly loved ones.  According to statistics from National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, about 82% of higher hour caregivers live with their aging loved ones; 60% are female and 40% are male, and a high percentage of family caregivers report severe emotional stress.  If you find yourself in this difficult predicament, consider using the money you’re saving to hire a professional live-in or live-out caregiver.  In the long run, you will have preserved your physical and emotional health, while A-1 Home Care in Burbank helps you absorb much of that stress.

Burbank In-Home Care: Caring for Seniors Suffering from Hemorrhage

A-1 Home CareA hemorrhage is a medical term for uncontrolled bleeding.  Most people associate it with bleeding in the brain, which would be intracranial hemorrhage, but there are also many other types that don’t occur in the brain, such as hemoptysis, hematemesis, hematuria, and venous hemorrhage.  Strictly defined, an intracerebral hemorrhage occurs when a blood vessel ruptures and the blood suddenly bursts into the brain tissue, interfering with the oxygen supply and thereby causing internal brain injury.  The type of hemorrhage linked to 8-13% of all strokes is the intracerebral hemorrhage, which is more likely to result in death or major disability than other types of bleeding.  A-1 Home Care in Burbank assists families who have elderly loved ones suffering from these types of brain injuries.

Post-Hemorrhage 24-Hour Brain Injury Care

After your elderly loved one’s physician stabilizes and releases your parent or grandparent from the hospital, you will notice major changes in your loved one’s ability to function.  You may experience a communication breakdown due to your loved one’s impaired language skills; seniors may also have a problem with swallowing, memory, impaired vision and seizures.  If you have never received formal medical training, your elderly loved one’s symptoms may seem daunting and overwhelming to you.  A-1 Home Care offers affordable 24-hour brain injury care for seniors and adults of all ages who suffered traumatic brain injury from natural or external forces.  You can expect excellent service from our in-home caregivers who will cook, clean, run errands, and give rides to your loved one’s appointments around Burbank and other neighboring cities.
