A well organized home can reduce anxiety.
How does a clean and tidy home make you feel? Most people feel a great sense of accomplishment and calmness when they have a clean and organized home. Imagine how it would feel if you were unable to keep up with basic housekeeping tasks. Aging can come with debilitating health concerns, less mobility and a lack of people around to help when general daily activities can get too much. Many of our clients struggle to keep their home clean and organized, leaving many with a sense of chaos and disorder. A clean and presentable home can make someone feel better and more confident. Germs can turn the smallest cold into something more serious, so a clean house isn't just about organization and pride; it's a matter of health.
Excessive clutter can be hazardous to older adults in many ways, creating fire hazards and fall risks. It can also give individuals a sense of chaos. At Seniors Helping Seniors, we will help your loved one with their light housekeeping, assisting with organizing and keeping clutter under control.
How can we help?
Cleaning can be an exhaustive task, particularly when mobility is already limited. The lightest housekeeping duties can become too much. While family members can chip in and do their best, they can't be there all the time; which is when a light housekeeping service comes in handy. Seniors Helping Seniors can help with light housekeeping tasks. Some of the duties that can be included are:
- Straightening rooms and organizing closets and storage
- Washing dishes or loading the dishwasher and emptying it afterwards
- Handling trash and recycling in the home
- Washing, drying and putting away the laundry
- Bed changing
- Feeding pets, going for a walk with pets, clearing messes
- Helping with mail
- Watering plants
