Parkinson’s Meds May Be Hazardous to Your Health

More than 50% of persons with Parkinson’s Disease are also diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease Psychosis (P.D.P.), a condition primarily characterized by visual hallucinations.  According to a new study published in JAMDA, a team of researchers discovered that persons with PDP were four times more likely to die from antipsychotic treatment than those who did not receive any antipsychotic drugs.  Living with an elderly loved one who has PDP is no easy feat, but with the assistance of a live-in caregiver, family members rest assured that they can rely on A-1 Home Care to meet the needs of their loved ones.  While you weigh the pros and cons of your beloved’s prescriptions, you can still depend on good old-fashioned help from a seasoned Parkinson’s caregiver.

Parkinson’s Disease comes with a host of progressive symptoms, such as tremors, slurred speech, distorted olfactory senses, stiffness, and difficulty with walking.  To ameliorate the symptoms of this disease, a highly skilled caregiver will implement an exercise routine and assist with activities of daily living. Along with personal care, medication monitoring, and transportation, a certified home health aide prepares meals rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.  Prevent falls with the presence of a vigilant caregiver who will stay awake all night or day so that you can have peace of mind. A-1 Home Care provides 24-hour live-in caregiver services to families all over Los Angeles County.

Established in 1991, A-1 Home Care is a non-medical home care agency that’s licensed, bonded, and insured.  This means that every caregiver who walks through our doors must pass an extensive criminal background check, have at least two years of paid caregiving experience, and have verifiable professional references who are not close friends or relatives of the caregivers.  We attribute our success to the dedication, loyalty, and competence of all our certified nurse aides (C.N.A.s), certified home health aides (C.H.H.A.s), hospital sitters, hospice caregivers, and companion caregivers all over Los Angeles County.  We also thank our repeat clients who have referred friends and families to us over the years.  Our compassionate, warm, and professional caregivers truly do become a part of your family.
