Heart diseases  are one of the leading killers in the United States.  Increasingly, we are seeing individuals receiving surgeries from getting stents inserted, heart bypass surgery, or adding a pacemaker to control the heart rate and rhythm.  If you want to reduce your risk of heart disease, follow the following tips.  Smokers are twice as likely to have a heart attack as those who don’t smoke, and quitting is never too late at any time to reduce your risk.  Two keywords often associated with heart diseases are cholesterol and blood pressure, and controlling those two aspects can greatly reduce your risk in heart diseases.  While this next advice is often recommended, but it should not be overlooked.  Getting active and eating right are two of the most important things one can do to stay health, especially for your heart.  Lastly, stress and anger can lead to higher blood pressure, as well as the increased risk of stroke and heart attacks.

Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s Patients

parkinson care sherman oaks a1 home care

The quality of life in a Parkinson’s patient may cause anxiety and depression, but there are some effective treatments that may help some people in calming some of the symptoms dramatically. One of these popular trends among the medical community is the called the deep brain stimulation. How this works is that it uses a small device that sends electrical impulses to different regions of the brain to possibly give symptom reliefs in tremors, balance, and other motor functions.

While this is not a cure for the disease, it is a great option for people who are no longer benefiting from medications. If deep brain stimulation is something you or your loved ones are considering, consult your doctor or neurologist to find out if it is the right treatment.

Incontinence “Smart” Pads Can Text but Cannot Replace Home Care

shermanoaks caregiversA new “smart” pad will text caregivers when their elderly client or family member needs a change.  Invented by Avtar Chagger, founder of Sensidry, the incontinence pad is designed with sensors that would send a text message when the diaper is soiled, and this would be especially helpful for seniors who are limited in their communication.  The cost and accessibility of this high tech product are to be determined, but the estimated launch date will be some time in the summer of 2015 if it’s approved.  Even with new gadgets coming out every year, technology cannot replace human connection, which is necessary to eliminate social isolation and ameliorate depression in the elderly.

Undivided attention from home health aides

The problem of incontinence neglect is prevalent in facilities and nursing homes.  Whether or not you use a high tech pad or just a regular pad, you still need assistance when the diaper is soiled.  Nursing care homes and hospitals are understaffed, which results in long periods of time in between changes.  In some care homes, there are about 20 patients to one staff member.  With a home care provider, your elderly loved one benefits from timely incontinence care based on his or her customized needs.

Unrestricted access to incontinence pads

The availability of “smart” incontinence pads to all facilities will be questionable, since most facilities only dispense three regular pads per day to each elderly resident.  Sometimes adult diapers are locked up in a facility, and only one primary nurse or caregiver has the key to the cabinet where the diapers are stored.  At home, you can purchase as many pads as you want for your loved one, and your home caregiver will have unrestricted access to meet your parent or grandparent’s needs.

Unwanted consequences from incontinence neglect

When an elderly person is forced to live with a soiled diaper for extended periods of time, he will suffer from rashes, pressure sores, depression, urinary tract infections, and possible hospital readmission.  If you suspect that your loved one is being neglected at a facility where he or she is presently staying at, you could hire additional help from a home care agency and have the caregiver take care of your parent at the facility or bring your loved one back home.

A-1 Home Care provides superior incontinence care for the elderly.  Our pre-screened and attentive caregivers, certified nurses and home health aides are ready to serve you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, wherever and whenever you need us.  Our phone lines are always open so you can all us anytime and reach a live operator.  Live-in services and live-out services include incontinence care, meal preparation, transportation, bathing, hygiene, companion care, light housekeeping, and laundry.
