Pico Rivera In-Home Care: 24-Hour Staff vs. 24-Hour Personalized Care

laguna beachPut yourself in your elderly loved one’s shoes and imagine yourself living in an assisted living facility, long-term care facility or nursing home.  You get your three meals a day; you have a room and perhaps share a room with another senior; there’s a nurse or caregiver who makes her rounds to the different rooms facilities to take your vitals and check for your toileting needs.  You have access to 24-hour staff but do you feel like anyone really cares about you – and you alone?  Do you have a constant companion by your side who will take you out and help you stay connected with your friends and family?  Do you have someone who will respond to you immediately when you have a need, or do you have to wait on an overloaded, tired caregiver or nurse to finish taking care of someone else?  The lack of personalized, compassionate care in aging institutions is what drives many seniors to request live-in care, because they can receive the same minimum assistance and more while living comfortably in their own home.

Benefits of Personalized Elder Care at Home

The saying, “There’s no place like home,” applies to elder care just as much as any other area in life.  A-1 Home Care in Pico Rivera has an outstanding reputation for building a memorable life for seniors in their golden years while ensuring patient safety and preserving dignity.  Having a live-in caregiver for your elderly loved ones doesn’t just help them – it helps you too.  Although you may be able to assist with errands such as grocery shopping or making meals, you could avoid awkward moments when helping your parent take showers or use the restroom.  If you are not professionally trained in toileting and grooming assistance, your good intentions might make the situation worse.  A-1 Home Care’s 24-hour caregivers are certified, seasoned and sensitive.

Keep Your Eyes Healthy


Vision problem is a common problems among seniors.  It does not only affect their reading skills, but it increases their risk of additional injuries as well.  For example, my grandmother has had cataracts for a while, and we always make sure there are any hazards around her home that she could possibly trip over and fall.  It is known that falls is one of the leading causes of injuries among seniors.  When combining vision problems with weakened muscles and bone structures, decreased balance, and other ailments, it can be very dangerous for the elderly people.  As a result, it is always recommended for everyone – even if you think your vision is healthy- to get regular comprehensive dilated eye exams to catch eye diseases early.  In addition to health vision month in May, it is also ultraviolet awareness month, so it is also a good reminder for everyone to always protect your eyes from UV rays by wearing UV-rated sunglasses because it lead to vision problems such as cataracts and macular degeneration down the road.
