Most of our elders want to maintain their independence as they age and stay in their own homes for as long as possible. However, many people begin having trouble with everyday activities like making their bed, taking out the trash, dusting, and washing dishes as they grow older. Living in a dirty or messy home can negatively affect your loved one’s mood and health and keeping up with the cleaning of an additional house may be challenging for you, if not impossible. If you are caring for a loved one and have found the workload overwhelming, you’re not alone. We can help!
