It is a difficult, emotionally challenging experience to learn that your loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness and has but a few months left to live. Time seems to freeze and you may not know what to do or how you can offer support. Clearly, not everyone who is diagnosed with a terminal illness is ready to talk about their death. It is advised to introduce the subject gently and simply, for example by asking “How sick are you?” One can seek spiritual guidance, such as by speaking with a rabbi or religious counselor, and ask advice about hospice. A-1 Home Care can provide your loved one with affordable Hospice Care to make them feel as comfortable as possible, while providing them with a dignified and improved quality of life during their final months. Hospice Caregivers can assist with basic symptom control, household chores and guidance for end-of-life planning. A-1 Home Care proudly offers a variety of ethnically diverse, multi-cultural and multi-lingual caregivers for families with diverse backgrounds (Jewish, Middle Eastern, Asian, European, Hispanic). From Hourly In Home Care to 24 Hour Care and more, A-1 has options for everyone to ensure that their loved one will spend their days comfortably.

A-1 Home Care has been connecting clients with care givers since 1991, putting us at the top with the experience and success stories to prove.

Conservatorship means assets becoming public records because of the court process it goes through, and it is difficult to avoid the process when one has become mentally incapacitated.  As a result, it takes thorough planning while still mentally competent in order to avoid the complicated process and expenses of conservatorship.  There are several ways to avoid that having your asset placed by a court according to About.com.  If you title your assets jointly with someone else, the other person automatically have the authorization to access and manage bank accounts, investments, and more.  Another way to go about this is the power of attorney, either a general power of attorney, one through an advanced medical directive from your primary doctor,  or one through financial institutions.  Lastly, one of the more efficient way is through a revocable living trust. It is always important to make sure that there are specific provisions for when and if the person becomes mentally incapacitated, and that always take the time to fund the trust because anything outside the trust can be subjected to conservatorship.

With the financial side of an individual well taken care of to avoid conservatorship, the care of the incapacitated individual might still be in question.  That’s where A-1 Home Care in Malibu comes in with our quality caregivers who specialize in the field of Alzheimer Care, Parkinson Care, Bipolar Care, Incontinence Care, After Surgery CareCancer Care, Post Stroke Care, Diabetic Care,  and other In Home Care for Elderly.  Not only do we serve the residence of Malibu, but we also operate in the cities of Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Palos VerdesRedondo Beach, Hollywood, Culver City, and other cities around Los Angeles and Orange County.  Contact us for service today, and soon you or your loved ones will be able to enjoy the dedicated and professional service from caregivers such as Letecia Evidente, Sabrina Fearence, and Noel Maninang.
