A heart flutter is another word for heart palpitations, which are abnormal sensations in the chest such as rapid heartbeat, irregular heartbeat, skipped beats, and hard beats, all of which could be continuous or intermittent. Heart palpitations could be a symptom of a variety of health conditions, including atrial fibrillation, heart block, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS, or premature ventricular contractions (PVCs). Heart flutters may be associated with other symptoms like dizziness, chest pain, tunnel vision, and headaches. Is your elderly loved one due for a medical check-up? A-1 Home Care offers affordable senior care services around Los Angeles and Orange County to ensure that your elderly loved ones get the undivided attention they need.
Caregiving Services Include Transportation and Other Assistance
Seniors are less likely to see a doctor if the following scenarios apply to them: (1) their driving privileges have recently been revoked; (2) their health conditions make it unsafe for them to be on the road alone; (3) they don’t have a car; (4) they live in remote areas where public transportation is scant, and (5) senior transportation services like Dial-A-Ride are not available. If you are the only one in your household besides your elderly loved one, it would be hard to take time off from work just to take your parent or grandparent to a doctor’s office. A-1 Home Care makes it easy for you by providing 24-hour or part-time caregiving services so you can still handle your business while your loved ones’ needs are being met. In-home care also includes assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, and vital sign checks.
