Special Needs Caregivers for the Disabled in Studio City

Here at Studio City, there are many families who have a member who is handicapped or has special needs. While there are many facilities and support systems that make living for people with special needs easier, there are still many obstacles in place. Travelling itself is not as easy as it is for those who are able bodied. Merely getting something from the counter top is also a difficulty if the object is too high. And while there are usually family members available to help out, the strain for them can also become very high.

With Special Needs caregivers, our clients, who consist of families formerly drained from their duties as family caregivers, are now living happily with a caregiver in the home. With 2 years of experience, our 24 Hour and live in caregivers can administer Respite Care, Incontinent Care, Heart Attack Care, and more.

Every Senior Needs a Companion

When we think of seniors, the most common picture that comes to mind is one that has been constructed by popular media- that of a warm, wise and and doting person. While it's not entirely  false, this image ignores the fact that depression along with other issues are common in the senior community. When seniors are hit with depression , their health takes a drastic turn for the worst. 

We, at A-1 Home Care, are making an effort to combat this trend. By using our caregivers as companions, seniors in Studio City are able to have their physical and mental well being taken care of. Along with Companion Care, our 24 hour caregivers are able to administer all other facets of care, including Incontinent Care and Senior Care. With 2 years of previous experience, our clients know that they are put in safe, gentle and protecting hands.

For more information on our services, call our office at 818 980 0094 and check us out online at Studio City In Home Care.

FAQs about elder law attorneys/ A-1 Home Care Studio City

Elder law is a subsection of legal work that is gaining popularity as the population ages. These types of lawyers are specialists in their fields, and deal with issues such as guardianship of elders who are unable to care for themselves, living wills, and Medicaid/ health care issues. Today, A-1 Home Care will be discussing the topic of living wills.

Your living will (health care declaration) is the place to write out what you do and do not want in terms of medical care if you are unable to speak for yourself. This is in the case that elders won't be able to communicate during the time of incident. You don't need to become a medical expert to complete your document, but it will help you to become familiar with the kinds of medical procedures that are commonly administered to patients who are seriously ill.

Living wills ask you whether or not you want to receive life-prolonging treatments at the end of life. Such procedures typically include:
  • transfusions of blood and blood products
  • cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • diagnostic tests
  • dialysis
  • administration of drugs
  • use of a respirator, and
  • surgery.
A-1 Home Care encourages elders to educate themselves on elder laws and rights. We are a home health agency located in Studio City and surrounding areas.  These include, the cities of Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Burbank, Los Angeles, West Hollywood, North Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, La Canada, Flintridge, Glendale, San Fernando or elsewhere in Los Angeles County.
