When your aging or disabled loved one lives in a clean and organized home, they enjoy greater feelings of well-being—and even good health. Those germs that linger on counter tops and other surfaces need to be disinfected and washed away to prevent bacterial and viral infections. Keeping refrigerators and cupboards free of expired or spoiled foods can avert food-borne illnesses. To avoid fire hazards, stoves, toasters, ovens and other appliances must be regularly cleaned to avoid a build-up of grease, oils or crumbs. Because it’s not easy to stay ahead of clutter or clean a home’s nooks and crannies if you’re a senior or disabled, SYNERGY HomeCare’s light housekeeping services can literally be a lifesaver. We make it possible for your aging parent or disabled family member to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a clean and uncluttered home while leaving all the dirty work to us.
Assistance with Light Gardening
Gardening is a favorite hobby for many. But aging issues, such as an aching back, force many seniors to give it up because all the digging and bending is strenuous. There’s a happier alternative. Your senior parent may continue to enjoy their green thumb with assistance with light gardening by one of our caregivers.
Organize & Stay Connected
If you notice a stack of late notices or unpaid bills in your parent’s home, there may not be a problem with your parent’s finances. They may have the money to pay the bills—but forget to write checks or misplace monthly statements. As part of our light housekeeping services, our caregiver companions can help your parent organize their bills and letters as well as stay connected with family and friends via email, photo sharing and social networking.
Kitchen Cleaning & Organization
Keeping a kitchen clean and organized is important to everyone, especially aging parents who still love to cook. Our in-home caregivers can help ensure the safety and cleanliness of your senior parent’s kitchen through light housekeeping services such as consistently cleaning the counter tops, running the dishwasher, sweeping floors and putting clean kitchen items back in cupboards and drawers. By eliminating extra pots, plates or other items near the cooking area, it reduces the chances of an accident. By frequently cleaning stoves, toasters, ovens and other appliances, it keeps grease, oils and crumbs from building up and becoming a fire hazard.
Bathroom Cleaning & Organization
The bathroom, everyone’s private and personal sanctuary, can turn into one of the most dangerous rooms in the home for the elderly. A slippery floor or misplaced rug can cause a hazardous fall. The bathroom medicine cabinet, where many people keep their prescriptions, should be neat and organized to avoid mix-ups. As part of SYNERGY HomeCare’s light housekeeping services, our caregivers can ensure that your aging parent or disabled family member’s bathroom is neat, clean and sanitized, creating the safest and healthiest environment possible.
Laundry & Ironing
For your senior parent, a clean and neat personal appearance is still as important as ever—even if they are having trouble keeping up with chores like laundry and ironing. Our in-home caregivers can help your loved one relax and look their best with light housekeeping services such as handling laundry loads, folding and ironing clothes.
There’s something irresistible about climbing into a bed at night with crisp, clean sheets. And yet changing bed linens can be challenging for seniors and the disabled. As part of our light housekeeping services, our assisted living caregivers will make sure your family member gets into a comfortable, clean bed every night. It’s just what they need for a good night’s sleep.
