When Winter comes through in full-force, it can make life much harder for everyone – especially senior citizens. The cold weather and slippery ground can lead to slippage or other serious injuries.

At A-1 Home Care Agency, our caregivers understand the detrimental effects of leaving the elderly in a position where they can potentially fall and severely injure themselves. Our seasoned team of caregivers provide an assortment of Elderly Home Care & Non-Medical Home Health Care for those that require extra assistance

Keep your loved ones Winter-ready and safe with these easy-to-follow tips:

Stay Away from Slippery Areas

This might sound like a no-brainer but for the sake of your loved one, keep them away from icy, snowy roads and sidewalks. As you are already likely aware, falls are a common occurrence for senior citizens during the Winter season. The injuries sustained can range anywhere from hip and wrist fractures to major lacerations.

All seniors must wear shoes that have good traction and non-skid soles if they are planning to go out for a walk. Another emphasis should be placed on the cane tip. Replacing a worn tip will provide them with a trustworthy option to lean on without having to worry about any slippage.

Staying Warm

Needless to say, low temperatures can lead to severe conditions like frostbite and hypothermia. You can counter this by keeping indoor temperatures within a comfortable range for the individual. Note that your body temperature should never dip below 95 degrees – if you do happen to notice this, seek medical assistance immediately.

Avoid Isolating Your Loved One

Winter can be a relatively lonely season as many seniors will have less contact with others due to the difficulty and danger of getting around. This doesn’t just lead to a sense of isolation, but it can also exacerbate depression within the elderly.

To avoid these issues, check in on your loved one as often as possible; even a small chat on the phone could mean the world to him/her. Additionally, you can opt for 24 Hour Home Care, that we at A-1 Home Care Agency, offer to provide round the clock services for families that are unable to care for their loved ones for extended periods of time.

Feel free to contact us at our Santa Fe Springs Office (562) 929-8400 or at our Newport Beach Office (949) 650-3800 to inquire about any of our premium services that we offer.

A-1 Home Care Agency is proudly licensed, bonded, and insured.

????????????????????????????????????????Undetectable in lab tests and x-rays, fibromyalgia does not lend itself to concrete diagnoses, but the physical symptoms such as a constant dull ache in the muscles, heightened pain and sensitivity to touch, nerve pain and tingling sensations are very palpable to the sufferer.  An estimated 8% of the American population is afflicted by this disease of the nervous system, most of whom are women.  The myth that fibromyalgia is “just a disease that doctors make up when they can’t figure out your diagnosis” is rooted in the fact that it cannot be supported by lab test results, but in 1990, the American College of Rheumatology came up with guidelines on identifying fibromyalgia based on patients’ reports.  If you or a loved one is suffering from fibromyalgia, count on A-1 Home Care in Malibu to help you in your time of need.

Are you caring for a spouse who has fibromyalgia?  Living with an elderly loved one with this health condition can take a toll on your relationship, especially as the disease worsens over time and she loses the ability to work and do basic things for herself.  Her depression, pain, and impaired cognitive function may make your life difficult but an attentive caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Malibu will know exactly what to do so you can rest.  In-home care entails cooking, cleaning, transportation to medical appointments and more.  Even respite care will teach you how to be more in tune with your loved one’s needs.  There’s nothing like having a personal assistant around with years of experience.

A-1 Home Care is a licensed, bonded and insured agency that was established in 1991.  For a quarter of a century, A-1 Home Care has been providing services all over Los Angeles County, including cities like Malibu, Agoura Hills, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Culver City, and Century City.  Our highly skilled caregivers have won the hearts of families all over Southern California.  We take great pride in our caregivers, certified nurse assistants, certified home health aides, and hospice care workers because they have an uncanny ability to connect with the elderly.
