Laundry Help is Included in Comfort Keepers At Home Care Services in Palatine, IL
Laundry and living assistance at home care services lighten the load for seniors in Palatine, IL, and the surrounding areas
There are many things about laundry that can make it difficult for seniors to manage on their own. These things include:
- Over time, it can become increasingly more difficult to lift and move the laundry basket, especially if it has accumulated several days’ worth of dirty garments.
- In apartment buildings, the laundry room may be on a different floor, forcing residents to walk up and downstairs to wash their clothes. This can be hard on the joints of seniors and may cause injury if done repeatedly. Some seniors may lack the strength to walk up and down the stairs.
- Operating the machines could be a challenge, as the design of some washers and dryers make it hard to reach the buttons for someone of limited flexibility and mobility. Front-load or top-load designs both present different pros and cons.
- Folding and putting away laundry can be time-intensive and seniors may lack the strength and coordination to be able to do them properly.
At Comfort Keepers, the goal of our at home care services is to make things easier for your loved one and give them more time to do the things they enjoy most.
Part of the Package
The true value of the services Comfort Keepers offers is when they are brought together to help seniors live comfortably during their day to day lives at home. Rather than having to move to an assisted living facility, seniors are able to stay in the comfort of the home that they love when they utilize living assistance services and have proper help from a caregiver. We tailor and customize a care plan that is unique to your loved one in order for them to get the most out of the care they are receiving. With your custom care plan, laundry services can be included along with a variety of other at home care services to create a safe and comfortable environment.
