Caring Senior Service by Comfort Keepers Includes Light Housekeeping
Our care providers help with household chores to encourage a safe, healthy lifestyle
People come to realize they are in need of professional caring senior service assistance for any number of reasons. Some decide to hire a caregiver simply as a precautionary measure, others are just coming out of a major medical event or hospitalization and need help during the recovery from an in-home care provider.
Although the reasons are as many as there are seniors, it is generally the case that there are some telltale signs of when your loved one should begin considering home care. One of those is a decreased ability to keep up with housekeeping. Caring senior service should never only be about helping your loved one with grooming, bathing, and medication management. It should be about helping them live as well as possible and on their own terms.
Keeping a clean house is a cornerstone of good health for a number of reasons. The first is that a clean house means less clutter and less clutter means fewer chances to trip, fall or injure oneself. A large chunk of emergency room visits by seniors is the direct result of falling, making it even more paramount to do as much as possible to prevent accidents in your loved one's home.
Cleanliness is also important when it comes to hygiene and illness. Reducing your loved one's risk of infection and illness is important because seniors already have weakened immune systems. At the same time, once a senior becomes ill, their recovery is much slower and takes a much bigger toll on the body.
Many seniors feel embarrassed about asking for help, particularly when it comes to issues of cleanliness. This is because cleanliness is highly valued in our society and strongly tied to independence. This is why it is so important for caregivers to be compassionate.
We approach all of our seniors with compassion, empathy, dignity, and care. Our caregivers can help your loved one with light housekeeping as part of our regular caring senior service program. This can include chores such as washing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen, mopping, vacuuming, clearing the house of clutter, organizing cupboards, drawers, and wardrobes, in addition to some of the services we mentioned above.
As part of our Interactive Caregiving program, your loved one will be encouraged to participate however much they can in cleaning their home. This will help them maintain a sense of pride and ownership in their independence.
