One of the top reasons that people abuse drugs or alcohol is because of stress.  The individual may experience stress during the recovery, or after because the body and mind needs to adjust to all the changes.  It may be easy to revert back to drugs to cope with such stress, but there are ways to relieve the stress without the need of drugs.  The following are a few strategies for quick stress relief. Exercise is good for your body, but it is also good for managing stress as it releases endorphins within your body, which help promotes stress relief.  Next, your furry best friends are great for a relaxing time, so play with your cat or dog more.  Another way could be listening to calming music and listening to scented candle.  While this may be new to you, trying something new and different could mean a new outlook in how you can approach stress relief.  Other strategies include remember fond memories, soaking in a hot bath, and possibly drinking a cup of steamy hot tea.

There are many other ways to help cope with stress, and A-1 Home Care in Malibu has the experience to provide support for your drug treatments.  Our home health aides, in home caregivers, and companions are highly qualified and dedicated to offer their service in Short-Term Care, Companion Services, Home Helpers, Hourly Home Care, Live-In Care, Respite Care, Personal Services, and much more.  Our coverage areas include Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Palos VerdesRedondo Beach, Hollywood, Culver City, and other cities around Los Angeles and Orange County, and we hope we can provide you the support on your road to sobriety!

One of the best way to fight cancer is to prevent it, or even just by discovering it early, that is why early screening is important for many types of cancer.  So here are some guidelines provided by the American Cancer Society to help you understand more about the different time interval and age that you should begin screening.  For seniors and elderly, as long as they are in good health, these screenings should still be performed. In the case for breast cancer, mammograms and clinical breast exam should begin at around age 40 every year. For those younger, a clinical breast exam should be done every three years.  Beginning at age 50, screening for colorectal cancer and polyps are recommended to both gender.  Lastly, reduce your risk by staying away from tobacco, regular exercises, and eat healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables.  But all in all, have an open discussion with your doctor about the type of screenings that is right for you or your loved ones, and live a healthy lifestyle.

Older adults and seniors have been there and done that, and it may be more difficult to get them excited about the holidays.  As a result, we want to share a few tips that you may use to help your elderly loved ones enjoy the holidays this season a little more.

  1. Provoke old memories – Strolling down the memory lane with seniors is probably one of the most powerful ways to see emotional reaction to the holidays.  Even with cognitive impairments, patients can have clearer memory of older events compare to more recent events.  Use pictures, videos, and music to best stimulate these old memories.
  2. Be inclusive – Don’t prepare the holiday feast alone.  Get everyone to participate and help, including them can make them feel part of it and enjoy the holiday spirits.  On top of that, it helps you relieve stress!  If the seniors are limited physically, create simpler tasks for them to participate with.
  3. Avoid embarrassments – Joke around is fine, but if it is directed toward a senior about their lack of memory, or other limitations, it can be out of line and embarrassing for them.
  4. Detailed planning –  Be courteous when it comes to seniors.  Be mindful that many of them could be on medication, and make sure nothing can create unwanted reactions with the drugs.  Moreover, make sure mobility is not a problem during the party.  Allow seniors to sit at the end of the tables for easy in and out.

If you are able to include these tips this season, then your elderly loved ones can surely enjoy the holidays without any problems.

Having a in home caregiver can dramatically improve the quality of life in a senior depending on the severity of their limitations.  A-1 Home Care in Malibu has over 20 years of experience in matching caregiver with clients for any home care scenarios, making sure each one is compatible with one another.  Moreover, our caregivers have at least 2 years of experience, CPR certification, criminal background checked, and more importantly, the dedication and compassion to become a quality caregiver.  All our caregivers, nurse aides, home health aides, and senior companions are expert in Alzheimer Care, Diabetic Care, Brian Injury Care, Parkinson Care, Kidney Disease Care, Incontinence Care, Multiple Sclerosis Care, and home care scenarios.  With coverage of areas such as Malibu, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Redondo Beach, Westwood, Century City, Studio City, Marina Del Rey, Culver City, and other cities around Los Angeles and Orange County.

a-1 domestic hospital sittersDo you have a loved one who is currently being hospitalized? Consider hiring a certified nurse aide or home health aide to expedite your loved one’s exit from the hospital and maximize his or her recovery time. The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing conducted a study that shows that best patient outcomes come from organizational support provided by home health agencies in a hospital. Due to Medicare cuts, nurses in hospitals experience work overload that takes them away from direct patient care to non-care responsibilities. This leaves numerous hospital patients unattended for extended periods of time. A-1 Home Care in Malibu teams up with Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center, Saint John’s Health Center, Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, and other hospitals in surrounding areas to provide quality patient care in Los Angeles County.
