Cancer Prevention and Awareness for the Elderly

April 1, 2019

According to the United States Cancer Statistics,  the top cancers for 2013 were as follows:

  • Female breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Skin cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Lymphoma cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Thyroid cancer

Across the board, cancer statistics are scary, but there are plenty of ways you could prevent cancer if you practice a healthy lifestyle.  As researchers learn more about different diseases and come with various medical resolutions, you can help an elderly loved one partake in making healthy choices in daily living.  A-1 Home Care helps seniors in Pasadena and surrounding areas to make those choices while you are away at work, so that nothing falls through the cracks.

How In-Home Care Can Help

If you are concerned that a loved one might develop cancer, a 24-hour caregiver will ensure that your elderly loved one is taking the steps to a healthier lifestyle.  Our caregivers will monitor your loved ones’ daily habits; they can alert you to areas of concern, such as use of tobacco, excessive consumption of alcohol, overeating or lack of physical activity.   Round-the-clock in-home care can still be helpful if your loved one has cancer; regardless of the stage, your loved one may feel too fatigued to do chores around the house.  Live-in care entails assistance with chores, cooking, cleaning, bathing, grooming and personal care.
