A loved one who wants to enjoy the independence of their own home sometimes needs a little help with the tasks that have just become too challenging. Housekeeping can be one of those burdens. A clean comfortable home is a great source of pride for a parent but sometimes the physical effort is just too much.
A clean home also leads to a feeling of well-being which can assist in overall health and happiness. Assurance Home Caregivers are willing to help with all the usual (and sometimes unusual) housekeeping duties. Some, but certainly not all, of the tasks include:
Our caregivers assist your loved ones by helping complete everyday laundry tasks such as washing clothing, towels, and bedding, folding clothes, putting away clothes, and ironing.
making beds and changing linens
People have much better sleeps when their beds are fresh and clean. Ensuring your loved is getting a good night’s sleep, our caregivers assist in maintaining clean sheets and making the bed. Making the bed every morning gives a sense of organization and accomplishment, ready to take on the rest of your day.
Not only does dust buildup make a home look dirty and dingy, but dust can cause breathing issues especially in elderly people and individuals with respiratory problems. Our caregivers can help with this household chore by getting into the corner or high points your loved one cannot easily reach.
Cleaning and disinfecting bathrooms and kitchens
Bathrooms and kitchens are rooms in your home that contain the most germs, and this only accumulates over time. Cleaning and disinfecting the bathroom and kitchen is important for maintaining good health and preventing mould and mildew growth. Our caregivers can keep these rooms safe and clean.
A refrigerator is an appliance that is constantly taking a beating because it is the hardest working appliance in your home. Our caregivers will help maintain and clean Mom or Dad’s refrigerator to ensure food is always safe and fresh. Maintaining a refrigerator means wiping up spills, checking for spoilage, cleaning the doors and interior, and eliminating odours.
Organizing Cupboards and Closets
Sometimes your home becomes a space of clutter and disorganization. The thought of decluttering can be very overwhelming, but our caregivers can eliminate this stress. We assist your loved one in organizing cupboards, closets, and drawers to make life a little less cluttered.
