Non Medical Care in Williamsport, PA & the Surrounding Areas
Find out how non medical care can enhance your senior living experience with the help of light housekeeping in Williamsport, PA.
Many seniors struggle with housekeeping as they age. Chronic pain, mobility challenges, and a loss of strength often make daily living tasks like light housekeeping and laundry difficult or even impossible. Many seniors worry that they may need to move into an assisted living community or nursing home for support. Thankfully, Comfort Keepers® offers award-winning non medical care in the comfort and convenience of your loved one's own home.
A Comfort Keepers® caregiver can help your senior loved one keep their home clean and organized. A clean, tidy home not only helps a senior feel good about their surroundings, which improves self-esteem and happiness, but it also reduces the risk of illness, allergies, and infection.
Standard housekeeping supports include vacuuming, sweeping, dusting, doing the dishes, and taking out the trash. Non medical care can help with the laundry, make the bed, clean and change the linens, and organize any clutter around the home. A well-organized home that is free of clutter greatly reduces the risk of falls. This is very important since 3 out of 4 senior falls occur in the home and are the leading cause of accident-related injury and death in seniors over the age of 65.
While light housekeeping supports will greatly improve the cleanliness and order of the house, there are some activities that are not included. For example, light housekeeping does not include:
- Heavy lifting or deep scrubbing of floors or carpets
- Outside work like cleaning gutters
- Raking leaves or shoveling snow
- Performing home maintenance
A caregiver can help your senior loved one arrange for these services to be performed by a qualified individual, however.
