One of the more difficult things to do as we grow older is keep up with regular household cleaning. As our bodies age, and our muscles and joints ache from scrubbing on our knees and bending around furniture, housekeeping slowly falls by the wayside.
Here at Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer light housekeeping services to seniors in the greater Schaumburg area to ensure that you or a loved one does not wind up living in a filthy home.
In situations where cleaning is done less frequently and not as thoroughly, various germs and allergens build up and pose health risks. If the home is not cleaned for extended periods of time, the dirt will continue build up and unwanted pests may begin to invade as well.
There are many more scenarios that can put you or a loved one at risk, but the point remains the same: it is important to engage in house cleaning services one way or another.
What is Considered Light Housekeeping for a Home Health Aide
When you choose Assisting Hands Home Care to help with light housekeeping, you can expect the following home cleaning services and more:
- Bed Making
- Dish Washing
- Changing Linens
- Bathroom Cleaning
- Laundry and Ironing
- Sweeping and Mopping
- Taking out the Garbage
Simply let us know your individual requirements, and we will provide a tailored house cleaning plan for you. We understand the difficulties that can result from neglecting these chores, and we are happy to help.
In addition to the cleaning services listed above, we offer assistance sorting through cluttered areas. If items are piled up and not sorted through regularly, this may pose a fire or fall hazard. We often see seniors get into the habit of saving unnecessary items that get lost in piles of unwanted belongings. We will help you clean and organize these possessions, and get rid of things that are not needed.
In some cases, our caregivers even help with light gardening. Many individuals take up horticulture at some point in their lives and never look back. We can help to maintain this hobby, and clean up around indoor plants.
We offer house cleaning services to seniors in the Schaumburg, IL area, and are happy to provide for your individual needs.
