238 years ago, America declared its independence from Great Britain to become its own sovereign nation.  238 years later, Americans continue to celebrate this momentous day across the country.  Since it’s has become part of our tradition to celebrate this national holiday, we want to share a few facts about July 4th to gain some perspective on this day.

Despite being the most “American” holiday there is, most of the fireworks and the America flags are actually imported from China, and it is simply a part of the global economy that we are in today.  However, the value of trading with United Kingdom, the land that we declared independence from back in 1776, exceeds $100 billion. However, the most staggering fact about Fourth of July is the population of the country.  Back when the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, there was only about 2.5 million people in the entire nation.  Although the number of stages have nearly quadrupled since then, , our population today exceeds 318 million (and growing) in merely 238 years.

Population growth is especially noticeable in the elderly population with the medical and technological advances in today’s world.  As the preferred home care agency since 1991, A-1 Home Care is ready to address the need for long term care with our quality in home care services.

Alzheimer’s patients may be quiet and not too responsive at times, and that can be discouraging to caregivers who are responsible in helping to improve the patient’s life.  To help keep them stimulated both physically and mentally, there are many activities that can achieve these goals.  Since Alzheimer’s patients may not be as sophisticated cognitively, try to keep things simple when choosing the activity.  Research has also shown that music works great in helping Alzheimer’s patients remember things from the past.  Since mental stimulation is not enough, light workouts such as a walk around the block or yoga for seniors can help keep fit.  Finally, try turning every day activities into a fun games.  The most important thing is to be creative and gauge the response of patient.
