Many of our senior clients spend much of their time at home. This means that keeping things clean and tidy is important for ease of living, safety and enjoying a good quality of life. When the standard of housekeeping starts to decline, it may be a sign that your senior loved one is struggling either physically, emotionally or mentally. Whether your ageing parent or family member is no longer able to lift, bend or carry things like they used to or is managing depression or the onset of dementia, if you notice that their home is looking unkempt, it may be time to arrange light housekeeping services for your senior loved one.
Comfort Keepers Peterborough can help. Our caregivers are happy to include light housekeeping services as part of their regular in-home care and companionship visits. Helping seniors feel comfortable, safe and supported at home is at the heart of our philosophy of care. The Comfort Keepers team genuinely enjoys connecting with their clients while helping them make home a good place to be. Ask Us About In-Home Senior Care
Our Light Housekeeping Services are a natural part of an in-home care or companionship visit. Our caregivers are able to assist with many day-to-day housekeeping tasks including:
** Please note that our Comfort Keepers cannot shovel snow, lift heavy furniture, climb step stools or ladders or offer any lawn maintenance as part of their light housekeeping services.
Our caregivers try to include their senior clients as much as possible. Following the senior’s lead, a Comfort Keeper can assist in completing any of the above listed tasks or can do them while sharing time and conversation with their client.
One of the most important benefits of having a clean and organized home is the sense of pride it gives. Whether a senior adult is involved in the hands-on cleaning process or not, having a space that is in good order makes for less mental clutter and stress. Practically speaking, a clean home is also safer and easier to move around for seniors. The risk of a trip or fall is reduced and important everyday items are easy to find and accessible. For seniors living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, knowing where things are and having a clutter-free space is especially helpful.
Home is where the heart is and Comfort Keepers caregivers are happy to assist their senior clients in keeping their home clean and organized with light housekeeping services for seniors. If you or a senior in your family needs support or companionship in order to enjoy the benefits of a clean and organized home, contact Comfort Keepers Peterborough to learn more about including Light Housekeeping Services into your in-home senior care.
