I was searching high and low for a company that could provide care for my mom who had hip surgery. It was frustrating trying to find someone that was trustworthy and highly recommended. Then my husband and I found Home Care Assistance. The team was so accommodating and sweet.

Home Care Assistance has been a blessing. My grandma was released from the hospital on a Sunday at 6 o'clock in the evening; she was in pretty desperate need of a little extra care and I was unable to help her at that moment. Our Care Manager quickly got on the phone and had someone there by 8 o'clock and was able to help me out for a few days. It was amazing! The care, consideration and wonderful demeanor made all the difference in such a difficult situation. I truly appreciate all of the caregivers and their assistance! This is a great company!

Home Care Assistance is truly a blessing to my family. You don't know how difficult it is to take care of someone until you are in the position to do so. I'm a granddaughter who has to take care of her grandmother. I work full time and don't always have the time to take her to appointments or help with things in her home. But recently she has fallen and again Home Care Assistance is here every step of the way, 24/7! Their team is the reason I'm able to take care of my grandmother. She is absolutely irreplaceable and I would be so disappointed if she wasn't there. Home Care Assistance makes this entire experience so much more bearable.

CaregivervFor Your Loved Ones In The Comfort Of Their Own House in Santa Clarita California
Home care assistance provides disabled people, the elderly and those with medical conditions the assistance and companionship they need to continue living at home. According to specialists, the elderly and the disabled will often fare much better if they continue living in their homes which is basically a familiar and comfortable setting where they are at peace. However, for them to function normally and live peacefully, they’ll often require medical care and some level of assistance when it comes to the handling of daily tasks.
Senior Care Castaic
Elderly people and senior citizens can continue living in the comfort of their homes as long as they get the care they for their specific conditions.
Elderly Care Forest Park
Home care assistants provide them personal and daily care solutions by handling things like bathing, housekeeping, meal preparation and dressing for them so that they can continue enjoying life even in old age.
Alzheimer’s Care Val Verde
For those who have Alzheimer’s, living in a familiar setting is often advised. However, since their mental health doesn’t allow them to live their own, home care assistants can prove handy. With a home care assistant by their side, Alzheimer’s patients can continue living at home while still getting the supervision and care they need for their wellbeing and safety.
Parkinson’s Disease Care
People struggling with Parkinson’s will often require special care since the condition tends to deteriorate with time. With a home care assistant, patients no longer have to worry about getting things done since the professional becomes their hands and provide assistance by handling most of their day-to-day tasks.
Just like Alzheimer’s, this condition affects the mental capacity of the patient, which leaves them vulnerable. However, the effects the disease has on patients is never the same; that, therefore, means that the level of assistance and care required varies from patient to patient.
Stroke is a serious condition that can severely impact the life of a patient. Stroke victims can end up either slightly or fully paralyzed on one side of the body, something that could leave them unable to move around with ease as before. Home care assistants can help such people by helping them get around and handling their daily tasks.
For people with cancer, trips to and from the hospital, housekeeping and important things like meal preparation become a hassle. Caregivers can help ease things for them by taking care of their needs and handling daily chores as the patient recuperates. From assisting clients to plan out their meals and handling shopping to providing companionship during treatment, caregivers provide the physical and emotional support patients need.
About Our Caregiving Services in Valencia CA
Our caregivers are professionals who’ve received training on how to handle clients with a great amount of respect irrespective of their physical, mental or medical needs. Before hiring, we ensure that they have all undergone background checks and that they’re certified to offer caregiving services. As professional caregivers, they are trained to watch for a sign which may indicate that a client needs further medical or personal assistance and to report any changes as soon as they note them.
Professional home care assistants will often go beyond themselves to make sure that their patients are happy, satisfied, comfortable and safe. However, the level of care a patient requires will vary from person to person depending on their condition. For instance, people suffering from diseases like Parkinson’s, Dementia and Alzheimer’s will likely need extra care than those who have aged and can no longer move around as easily as before. Nonetheless, a professional home care assistant will, irrespective of the patient’s condition, always be looking for ways to improve their client’s quality of life by assisting them with their daily routines and activities.

Los Angeles County
Post Traumatic Brain Injury Care (TBI)
When most people think about dementia, the first term that comes to mind is Alzheimer’s disease. Many people are also familiar with Vascular dementia or Lewy body dementia. But one form of dementia that isn’t on everyone’s lips is a condition called Korsakoff Syndrome. This condition is most commonly the result of excess alcohol intake over a period of years. In other words, while dementia may manifest for multiple reasons, this type of dementia is induced by heavy drinking.
Exploring the Alcohol-Dementia Connection
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that every day around 240 Americans die from alcohol-related causes. That adds up to 88,00 deaths on average, annually.
Widely used and often-abused, many of us know someone whose life has been devastated by alcohol addiction. Besides the ravages of addiction, over-consumption can lead to heart disease, liver problems, numerous cancers, and a weakened immune system, to name just a few.
Alcohol can cause brain damage, killing off brain cells faster than they can regenerate. For some unfortunate souls, too much elbow bending paves the way for serious memory problems, including dementia.
Korsakoff Syndrome: A Little Known, Big-Time Problem
Korsakoff Syndrome belongs to a family of disorders known as Alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD). Simply put, ARBD may happen when someone over-indulges in adult beverages over a course of years.
Korsakoff syndrome (KS) is specifically related to an extreme deficiency of vitamin B-1, which is also known as thiamine. While there can be other causes, Korsakoff syndrome typically results from alcohol abuse.
Thiamine plays a vital role in helping brain cells create energy. Without enough thiamine, the brain is unable to produce the energy that’s necessary for someone to function efficiently.
Signs and Symptoms of Korsakoff Syndrome
Korsakoff syndrome causes chronic memory loss. People living with KS find it difficult to handle day-to-day activities. If your loved one has KS, you might see them struggle with learning something new. You may also notice changes in their personality, or see them become apathetic about things they once cared about.
It is also not uncommon for people with the disorder to make something up and present it as the truth. Just know that this is not intentional, but that their brains are trying to make sense of memory gaps. They are not consciously making things up. Doctors call this behavior confabulation.
Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome: a Tragic One-Two Punch
Korsakoff syndrome has a common precursor called Wernicke encephalopathy (WE). Wernicke encephalopathy is a severe brain reaction to dangerously low thiamine levels. WE is a four-alarm emergency that erupts into a potentially fatal failure of brain function. Symptoms may include coordination problems, involuntary eye movements, confused thinking, and trouble walking.
Following an episode of WE, people may develop Korsakoff syndrome and its ongoing memory problems. Due to the close connection between the two disorders, many clinicians refer to it as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS). However, there is no consensus on whether WKS is made up of two distinct disorders, or different aspects of the same condition.
We’ll leave these distinctions to the researchers. What there is agreement on is that WKS is characterized by thought-processing issues and nervous system changes. Failing timely intervention, it can cause irreversible brain damage, and even death.
How to Spot Alcohol Abuse in Seniors
One reason it’s hard to spot alcohol abuse in seniors is that the symptoms of drinking problems closely resemble the challenges of aging. That’s why it’s often hidden or glossed over. “Oh, I know mom has an extra glass of wine these days, but she’s had a lot to cope with lately. Anyway, it’s normal for a person her age to seem a bit confused from time to time.”
On the other hand, please consider this fact: Some experts believe that more than half of senior citizens who’ve received acute hospital care are abusing alcohol. There are also the somewhat cynical outlooks that A) mom or dad won’t be around much longer, or B) that elderly people can’t be successfully treated for alcoholism.
But when you love a parent, you’ll do everything in your power to keep them as safe and healthy as possible, right? Please keep your eyes peeled for these signs of aging that might also indicate a possible alcohol issue:
Depression or anxiety
Slurred their speech or confusion
Lack of appetite or potential malnourishment
Inability to take care of themselves the way they used to
In addition, be on the lookout for clear signs of heavy drinking:
Drinking more often
Breath smelling of alcohol
Drinking when alone
Becoming irritated when you bring up how much they are drinking
Stop Alcohol-Related Dementia Before it’s too Late
There are some impacts of aging that can’t be helped. But trying to prevent your loved one from developing alcohol-related brain damage – or getting help if it’s already developed – is something that’s within our power to accomplish! What can you do right now to give your loved one the opportunity to live a longer, healthier, more satisfying life?
