????????????????????????????????????????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.
