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.

For the elder’s mental health, creating happy moments like this will go a long way. So, this new year, try to make it a special one for your elders.

Here are some ways to achieve that goal.  Ask them if they need help making New Year greeting cards, the process of making something together can make it unforgettable, especially when children are involved.  Play fun and festive music to make the environment very relaxing.  Most music from their era is calming and cheerful, the positive vibe will help lift the elders’ spirit up.  Finally, help them shop for things for friends and family.  Shopping is a stressful time when it comes to what to buy for who, and relieving the elders from that duty makes them know that you care about them.  But above all, what they truly cherish is your company, and simply being around them can make their lives that much better.

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.
