a-1 home care cancer care encinoParlez-vous français?  Sprechen Sie deutsch?  Parli italiano?  Scientific studies show that the more languages you know, the better your chances are of having normal cognitive function after a stroke, according to the American Heart Association journal, Stroke.  The study shows that bilingual patients “performed better than single language patients on attention, information retrieval and organization.”  Not only does being bilingual or multilingual make you look smart, it also may delay the onset of Alzheimer’s, based on previous research results.  “The advantage of bilingualism is that it makes people switch from one language to another, so while they inhibit one language, they activate another to communicate,” stated Suvarna Alladi, a neurology professor at Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS).  When it comes to providing elder care in Southern California’s diverse demographic regions, A-1 Home Care in San Gabriel is unique in having a culturally diverse pool of caregivers, many of whom have former nursing and educational backgrounds.


Intelligent Companion Care for Stroke Patients

Before your elderly loved one suffers a stroke, if you suspect any signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s, it is highly important to hire an in-home caregiver who can provide not only assistance around the house, such as light housekeeping, meal preparation and transportation, but someone who could also bring a little extra to the table, like a lesson in the caregiver’s own native language.  A-1 Home Care has a vast pool from which you can choose Filipino, Cambodian, Spanish, Middle Eastern, and other ethnic caregivers who live in San Gabriel Valley.  Matching the right caregiver with your elderly loved one is important, which is why A-1 Home Care’s experienced care managers will link you with someone who will engage your loved one in stirring pleasant memories, creating emotional bonds with others, inspire positive self-expressions, and participate in activities that stimulate and promote intellectual growth.

There is good news from the Food and Drug Administration recently regarding plans on approving more Alzheimer’s drugs.  According to the New York Times, the history of the FDA was that Alzheimer’s drugs were only approved if they have effects on improving daily functions such as feeding, dressing and bathing, in addition to ability to reason and remember.  However, the plans to loosen rules for new treatments means more drugs availability for people at risk of Alzheimer’s disease, slow down or even prevent the disease and symptoms.
