Comfort Keepers Offers Housekeeping as Part of Elderly Home Care Services in Reno, NV
Elderly home care services encourage a safe, clutter-free home for seniors
Housekeeping can be challenging for seniors who have difficulty moving around, lifting heavy objects, climbing stairs, or certain illnesses. To minimize the risk of falls and at home injuries, which are among the most common causes of hospitalization in seniors, elderly home care services can help your loved one maintain their household and live in a safe, hazard-free environment through light housekeeping assistance.
Regular tidying up of the house can help prevent the spread of germs and build-up of dust that can cause or worsen certain illnesses and allergies. Seniors may find it difficult to reach some spots in their house, namely those behind furniture or in the bathroom and kitchen, which can result in bacteria accumulating and affecting your parent’s quality of life. To make sure it doesn’t happen, elderly home care services pay attention to every corner of the home, keeping all rooms as clean as possible.
While the extent of our housekeeping services largely depends on your parent’s home and abilities, regardless of the size of your loved one’s house, we can assist with vacuuming, sweeping and mopping floors and dusting, as well as with kitchen and bathroom clean-ups and laundry. We can also wash the dishes, rearrange the items in kitchen cabinets so your loved one could easily reach them on their own, and help organize the wardrobe.
Our elderly home care services focus on senior safety, which is why our caregivers can provide assistance with fall-proofing the home. This entails decluttering the house, rearranging small furniture such as coffee tables to make more space in rooms, and suggesting installing grab bars, handrails, and other devices as requested.
As our elderly home care services are based on our Interactive Caregiving approach, it is important to note that all our services include companionship as well. What this means is that our caregivers will not just come to clean your parent’s home but also to talk to them, keep them mentally engaged, and encourage them to take an active role in maintaining their home – as much as their age and health permit, of course.
Your parent can, for example, perform minor household tasks such as organizing decorative items on tables or polishing silverware. If they are not in the mood to participate, our caregivers will engage them in enjoyable conversation while they are working, so housekeeping can become a fun activity your parent can look forward to.
