Prevent falls and promote safety with helpful senior at home care services from Comfort Keepers
A clean home promotes a clear mind and good health. Each person, no matter their age or ability, deserves to live in a space they are proud to call home. However, the fact is that some people who have lost some of the ability to care for themselves independently, have trouble keeping up with housework and some even end up living in unhygienic environments with our senior at home care services.
If your loved one is having an increasingly difficult time with housekeeping, it may be time to start considering senior at home care services.
It may be very tricky to bring up senior care services to your loved one, particularly if you are doing so because their home is becoming messier and less clean. Over our years in caring for seniors, we find that the key to quality home care lies in compassion and communication. Your loved one will understand you are coming from a compassionate place and only want to help them. It may be uncomfortable, but having a caregiver around will help keep your loved one safe and give you peace of mind.
One of the things few people realize about senior at home care services is that much of caregiving revolves around safety, housekeeping is a key component to that and will benefit your loved one's heath by:
- A clutter-free house will reduce your loved one's risk of falling
- Significantly reducing your parent's risk of developing a hygiene-related illness
- Relieve any stress and anxiety they may have over a messy house
Although a caregiver's primary objective will always be helping your loved one with personal care and medication management, they can pick up some light housekeeping tasks along the way. This does not mean that a caregiver is the same as a maid, but they can help around the house.
Some of the chores a caregiver can take care of for your loved one are:
- Putting things away
- Doing laundry
- Washing dishes
- Cleaning up the kitchen
- Organizing cupboards
