Home Care Scenarios in Brea, CA



Victoria and Two Chronic Illnesses


Victoria Schaeffer lives in Brea, CA with her beloved dog Mindy.  She is 71 years old and must cope with the burden of Type 2 Diabetes and chronic osteoarthritis.  Once the arthritis started getting bad in her hips and knees, life became very difficult.  Coupled with Diabetes, Victoria became depressed and gained weight.  The mismanagement of her Diabetes caused fatigue and irritability that made her socially isolated and caused her to make poor dieting decisions that lead to an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle.

Her son John who lives in Los Angeles noticed how much she had changed at the last Christmas gathering and decided that something had to be done.  Knowing that his mom wouldn’t want to leave home, he sought out home care services in Orange County.

John found Claudia through A-1 Home Care.  After meeting with an agency representative, discussing the living situation, and learning more about the agency’s hiring practices, John went with Claudia after interviewing a couple of other caregivers beforehand.  She seemed like the perfect choice, with background experience caring for individuals with Arthritis and Diabetes.

Victoria says that she wouldn’t know where she’d be without Claudia who has not only become a friend, but assists with any activities of daily living Victoria needs in addition to helping her turn her life around.  Victoria began to eat Claudia’s healthy meals and started exercising more after Claudia showed her various range of motion exercises that would help her balance and mobility.
