Light Housekeeping Is An Important Part Of Comfort Keepers At Home Care Service In Jackson, TN
Find out how our at home care service can help your senior loved one keep their home clean in Jackson, TN
Many seniors feel that they need to move into a nursing home or assisted living facility once they can no longer perform daily living activities with ease. The truth is that most of these seniors could have remained in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes by taking advantage of an at home care service.
Our at home care service enables seniors to continue to live independently and safely in their own homes by providing housekeeping and personal care supports.
One of the first challenges seniors often face is that of housekeeping. Pain, mobility challenges, lack of muscle mass, frailty, dementia, Parkinson's, and many other medical conditions can make it difficult or impossible to keep up with the household chores. This is where Comfort Keepers at home care service can come in handy. Not only is a clean home important for good health, but a clean and tidy home also makes people feel better about themselves and the place they live.
Comfort Keepers light housekeeping support includes such tasks as vacuuming, sweeping, mopping of floors, and taking care of plants. It also involves cleaning counters, sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets. Dishes and laundry can be washed, dried, and put away while appliances are cleaned, and trash is taken out. Bed linens can be laundered and changed, and clothing can be ironed. When necessary, items can be taken to and picked up from the dry cleaners.
While caregivers can perform light housekeeping tasks, seniors are welcome – and, in fact, encouraged – to participate in the cleaning process. Research suggests that seniors who continue to contribute to their own care have a higher self-esteem, feel better about their situation, and enjoy a higher quality of life.
