Westwood In-Home Care for Neuropathic Pain

a-1 home care hospice careChronic brain pain results from trauma to the nervous system.  Damage could be caused by diseases like diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, or some other neurodegenerative disease.  The prefrontal regions of the brain, which controls conscious decision-making, personality, memory and social behavior, are adversely affected and produce impaired cognitive activity, memory loss, and difficulty in concentration.  Exposed to normal stimuli, the damaged nerves send incorrect messages to the pain regions in the brain that are heightened in sensitivity.  Are you or a loved one suffering from neuropathic pain?  Let A-1 Home Care in Westwood send caregiver assistance along the way!

Quality In-Home Care for Everyday Tasks

Neuropathic pain interferes with one’s ability to perform menial tasks that we take for granted.  Depending on the extent of brain damage, one’s quality of life is severely compromised.  To offset the pain, let a skilled caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Westwood pamper your feet that may have nerve damage.  The companion care worker could also prepare a nice warm bath which will increase blood flow and lessen bodily stress.  When it gets too painful to move your legs or arms, an intuitive and gentle caregiver will apply capsaicin cream to ameliorate the symptoms.  In-home senior care entails assistance with activities of daily living, such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, bathing, grooming and hygiene.  A little help around the house goes a very long way.

Affordable Long-Term Care for Traumatic Brain Injury

Oftentimes, nerve damage is permanent and requires long-term care.  Because neurons don’t regenerate like other somatic cells, persons living with neuropathic pain need in-home care for the long haul.  Are you a family caregiver living with a loved one who depends on you for physical assistance and emotional support?  Do you find yourself burned out at the end of the day?  Perhaps a week or two may not take a toll on you, but if you are a woman who single-handedly is taking care of children and an aging parent, it would be harder for you to re-enter the workforce if you take time off from workA-1 Home Care in Westwood delivers the best home care assistance at the most competitive rates in Los Angeles County!
