Hourly Care for Seniors and Elderly At Home

Personalized Home Based Hourly Care

Is your senior father living alone in a large house? He may be perfectly capable, but you would like to send someone for companionship, hot meals and light housekeeping just to make sure he stays in top shape.

A-1 Home Care Agency offers hourly in home care services that may be perfect for you. Typically, our at home hourly care clients are relatively healthy, single elders who request our flexible services such as cooking help, transportation, housecleaning, wellness checks, medication reminders, companionship and more. With services such as Home Helpers, Senior Companions, Elder Care Aides, Caregiving Service, Live In Care, Personal Services and Respite Care, A-1 Home Care Agency is your neighborhood Home Care Agency.

As people grow old, malnutrition, loneliness and lack of personal hygiene care become prevalent. Don’t let this happen to your loved one. If you have questions about at home care services, call A-1 Home Care Agency. Our friendly intake counselors strive to forge lasting connections, taking consideration of your in homecare special requests. If your senior friend misses his wife’s authentic Mexican cooking or is a chess master seeking a willing opponent, A-1 Home Care Agency will accommodate our Caregiver or Home Health Aide request.

A-1 Home Care Agency is a member of the National Care Planning Council, dedicated to raising the standards within the elder care industry. Our caregiver agency sponsors City of Home, Make A Wish Foundation, National Breast Cancer Research Center, Union Rescue Mission, The Heritage Clun, Haven of Rest and Lighthouse Ministries.

Prevent Malnutrition with Hourly Care Cooking Services

According to the Center for Disease Control, Elder Malnutrition is a serious problem facing 65% of our seniors. The situation flourishes in unlikely spaces such as hospital settings and assisted living facilities, where unpalatable meals aren’t consumed, and alternatives aren’t available. A-1 Home Care Agency’s skilled elder caregivers can provide thoughtful solutions. Our hourly caregivers can prepare delicious, healthy meals for your elderly loved one, and we take in a number of specifications. These include:

  • Ethnic Cooking: If your elderly parent loves authentic Chinese cuisine or traditional American cuisine, A-1 Home Care Agency can arrange a Home
    Helper to prepare nutritious meals.
  • Low Fat, Low Cholesterol Diet:
    Seniors are usually great at cutting back on red meat but become protein deficient when they don’t consume healthy alternatives. Our Home Health Professionals or Caregivers cook with high quality proteins such as fish, chicken, beans, tofu, lentils and peas.
  • Low Sodium Diet:
    A-1 Home Care Agency works to keep your favorite Senior excited about eating, by simmering with chicken broth instead of water, and infusing herbs, pepper and aromatics into food.
  • Chewing problems:
    Sometimes, dental problems get in the way of consuming food. A-1 Home Care Agency can help with Care Givers who prepare delicious, soft diet recipes. We can prepare hearty soups, soft pasta dishes, polenta and more.
  • Nausea:
    A common side effect to medications and illnesses, nausea doesn’t have to be the end of eating. Our Care Workers or Caregivers are knowledgeable in techniques to manage nausea. These include consuming food at room temperature, staying hydrated, eating small meals through the day, consuming fiber, and sniffing crushed mint.

A-1 Home Care Agency has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and proudly serves the cities of Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Pasadena, South Pasadena, San Marino, and other areas of San Gabriel Valley, Los Angeles County and Orange County.
