Long Term Care Planning for Elderly Guardians

a-1 domestic  senior home health care

Unable to make any informed decisions on their medical care, financial issues, or living arrangements, elderly living with serious physical or cognitive illnesses may require another person to make such informed decisions for them.

A legal guardianship is a way that a court can appoint an appropriate guardian  when there was no prior estate planning or power of attorney established.  Furthermore, a guardian can be obtained by any competent adult who have no criminal history.  Typically, the court would favor a family or a close friend of the elderly person as they know the in’s and out’s of the person’s life. Often times, living arrangements need to be made for these individuals due to their state of health, thus long term care planning becomes an important part of the responsibilities for the appointed legal guardian.

Bringing The Holiday Cheers For Seniors in Pasadena

Our team at A-1 Home Care in San Gabriel Valley believes in lending our helping hands for community service.  On Monday, our field supervisor Michael, along with case manager Jackie, and social media bloggers Jesus and Hanna were welcomed by an activity room filled with seniors eagerly awaiting for the event at the Two Palms Convalescent Hospital in Pasadena.  We began with a presentation about the spirit of the holidays, then proceeded to entertain them with a few classic Christmas scenes from movies as well as joyous Christmas music.

Once everyone was settled in and got excited about the holidays, we then began the main arts and crafts event by handing each participant ornaments and creative supplies to personalize their own.  After all the glues and glitters were dried, the Christmas tree at the center got a little more personalized, and everyone  had a great time and Christmas cannot arrive sooner!

Our staff had a wonderful time sharing the Christmas cheers at the Two Palms Convalescent Hospital, and we hope everyone can have as big a smile this holiday season as the seniors we interacted with in Pasadena.
