Light Housekeeping Services Are Available as Part of Care Plans Right at Home in Palatine, IL
Comprehensive senior care promotes wellness and independence right at home
Helping seniors get all the assistance they need right at home can make a major difference in their overall well-being. By doing so, we are essentially giving them the opportunity to choose where they would like to spend the remainder of their golden years. This can contribute not only to helping them feel independent and proud that they are not burdening their children, but also help improve their mood and keep them active both physically and mentally.
One of the first signs that a senior may be needing home care is an increasing inability to keep up with maintaining a clean home. Most people will think that a senior must resort to moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility, but that is simply not the case. With home care, seniors can get the help they need right at home. Caregivers will be there for your loved one for whatever they need when they need it.
At Comfort Keepers, our standard home care package includes light housekeeping. In addition to all the personal care and companionship care services our caregiver will provide for your loved one, they can pick up some housekeeping chores along the way as well.
Of course, caregivers are not maids, their primary responsibility is to provide non-medical in home care. Caregivers cannot carry out major cleaning projects and a professional cleaning service should be called if such an instance should arise. Our caregivers can help your loved one schedule the services of a professional cleaner and oversee their work if needed.
The sort of work caregivers can pick up along the way includes cleaning up light clutter, washing the dishes, cleaning up and organizing the kitchen, vacuuming, mopping up the floor, cleaning the bathroom, organizing closets and offering to take things your loved one no longer needs to a charity of their choosing. This way, your loved one can stay at home without worrying about the potential health hazards a cluttered and unhygienic living environment can produce.
A caregiver can also help your parent organize a yard sale. Selling off some items they no longer need will contribute to a clutter-free environment and fall prevention - a major aspect of quality home care.
