Respite and Elder Care in Pasadena

Many family caregivers feel guilty even thinking about taking a day away from caring for a senior or elderly loved one.  It's important to remember that balancing work and family is always difficult and this is especially true when you are providing in home care services to an ill relative.

Respite Care is an excellent way for you to get a chance to recharge and releases the stress providing in home care to an elderly parent can bring.   Although it's difficult to trust someone else to care for your loved one, Respite Care is a gift to yourself and the person you're caring for.

The Mayo Clinic has a lot of valuable information on Respite Care and resources of caring for an elderly relative at home, including professional in home care services.

A-1 Home Care Agency has provided Respite Caregivers to families in Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, South Pasadena, Altadena, Glendora, Monrovia, San Marino, Glendale and Los Angeles County with Elder Care, Alzheimer's and Hospice Care at affordable rates since 1991.

Alzheimer Caregiver Service in Pasadena


People with Alzheimer's Disease in the family will be glad to know that preventative options are in development. The New York Times published an article, "Three Drugs to Be Tested to Stave Off Alzheimer’s" about tests for new drugs that would target people who have genetic mutations for Alzheimer's. It is an "attempt to prevent the disease in people who are otherwise doomed to get it".

At A-1 Home Care, we know how harrowing it feels to experience the beginnings of illness. Seeing a parent or family member suffer with an incurable disease is a tragedy, but potentially having a genetic bomb in your system can be panic inducing. We hope you keep up with the latest developments in medicine.

A-1 Home Care provides care for seniors with Alzheimer's Disease. We offer services in the cities of Pasadena, Arcadia, Altadena, Glendora, Glendale, Monrovia, San Marino, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena and Los Angeles.
