Getting Started With Cleaning Services For Seniors

General housekeeping is a significant part of senior home care that involves a professional caregiver’s assistance in keeping seniors and others alike who may be unable to keep their homes clean, comfortable, and free from health hazards.

Due to their old age and health conditions like Parkinson, Alzheimer, and back pains, seniors find it hard to do basic tasks like washing, sweeping, arranging clothes, cleaning furniture, etc.

And it’s not just the elderly; individuals experiencing fatigue and weakness aren’t left out, as they can use the help of local maid services.

At Ezra Home Care, our experienced caregivers are trained to provide cleaning services for seniors while they lay back and enjoy their lives without stress.  In this article, we will explore what general housekeeping entails, discuss various housekeeping services, highlight the benefits for seniors, and explain who can benefit from these services.

What House Cleaning Services for Seniors Entails

Housekeeping for seniors cuts across various services geared toward making your home more welcoming, tidy, and brand new. It entails activities such as:

  • Cleaning up clutter and organization: A cluttered living space can pose safety hazards for your elderly.  With the assistance of a caregiver,  they help declutter and organize the home, creating more space and reducing the risk of falls or accidents.
  • Dusting and vacuuming carpets and stairs: Caregivers ensure that every dust particle in your home gets cleaned. This helps to reduce eye irritations, coughing, sneezing, and other dust-related health problems.
  • Sanitizing door knobs and hardback chairs: A trained caregiver will assist with disinfecting surfaces such as door knobs, tables, etc., which are touched often. This sanitization reduces the elderly risk of catching infections from germs.
  • Meal preparation and kitchen maintenance: Caregivers make it a duty to provide nutritious and well-balanced meals for seniors. They also assist with clearing out the trash and washing the dishes to promote a healthier environment.
  • Laundry and linen care: Housekeepers can assist with laundry duties, sorting, spreading, folding, and organizing clothes. They can also take care of bedding, including changing sheets and making beds, ensuring seniors always have fresh and clean linens.

General Housekeeping Tips For Seniors

At Ezra Home Care, we understand how frustrating it can be coming back home to meet dirty dishes and a general decline in your home’s cleanliness. And it might not be so convenient to hire local maid services, so here are some light housekeeping suggestions you can employ to ensure cleaning is easier for your loved one:

  • Create a Routine: Establish a regular schedule for cleaning tasks to ensure that everything gets done without overwhelming your elderly. Split tasks into manageable chunks and spread them throughout the week.
  • Declutter and Organize: Minimize clutter by removing unnecessary items from living spaces. Organize belongings in a logical and easily accessible manner to enhance safety and efficiency.
  • Ensure Good Lighting: Proper lighting is crucial for seniors' safety. Replace dim or burnt-out bulbs and consider using brighter LED lights to improve visibility, especially in hallways, staircases, and frequently used areas.
  • Maintain Clean Floors: Regularly sweep, mop, or vacuum floors to prevent trips, slips, or falls. Consider using non-slip rugs or mats in high-risk areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Bathroom Safety: Keep the bathroom clean and dry to reduce the risk of accidents. Install grab bars near the toilet and shower area, and use non-slip mats or adhesive strips in the bathtub or shower.
  • Kitchen Hygiene: Maintain a clean kitchen to prevent the growth of bacteria. Clean countertops, appliances, and utensils regularly. Dispose of expired food items and empty the trash frequently to avoid unpleasant odors.
  • Dust and Allergen Control: Regularly dust surfaces to eliminate allergens and maintain air quality. Use a microfiber or damp cloth to trap dust instead of spreading it into the air.
  • Laundry Management: Stay on top of laundry by establishing a regular washing and folding routine. If needed, consider utilizing laundry services or seeking assistance from family members or a caregiver.
  • Regular Maintenance: Conduct regular maintenance checks to ensure the home is in good condition. Address issues such as leaky faucets, loose handrails, or faulty electrical outlets promptly to prevent accidents.
  • Seek Assistance: Don't hesitate to ask for help when needed. Reach out to local maid services or housekeeping agencies that specialize in housekeeping services for seniors. These professionals are trained to understand the unique needs of older adults and can offer tailored support.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you select caregivers to join the Ezra Home Care team?

Our caregivers undergo a rigorous screening process including a criminal background investigation, certification or licensing verification (in applicable positions), and a thorough reference check. The caregivers that we select are all people that we would want to take care of our own loved ones.

How do I know that I or my loved one will be assigned a caregiver that is a good fit?

First we will conduct a free Safety and Needs Assessment of your loved one or of your current situation. The Safety and Needs Assessment will allow us to customize a care schedule and determine the type of caregiver your loved one or you may need. Then we will give you and your family the chance to meet with several caregivers that match your needs and schedule.

What if the caregiver I am assigned is not a good match for me?

If you find, for any reason, that you would prefer to try another caregiver we will find a replacement for you.

What if I only need help for an hour or two?

No problem. At Ezra Home Care, we have no minimum hour requirements.

If I already live in an assisted living community, can I still use your services?

Absolutely. Many of our clients need more care than an assisted living community can provide but do not want to live in a nursing home. As long as your community approves, we can supplement your care services so that you can remain as independent as possible.

What if I’ve already moved into a nursing home, but still want services that Ezra Home Care offers?

We are happy to assist you no matter where you live. If you find that you’d like a companion to talk to, an escort to an appointment or any type of assistance beyond your nursing home’s services, we are there for you.

Ezra Home Care is a “private pay” service. What does that mean?

Private pay means that services are paid for using personal income or assets—without aid from insurance or government benefits. We would be happy to discuss pricing details with you directly.

Are there any other ways to pay for private home care services?

Yes, there are other available options:
  • Long term care insurance
  • Reverse mortgages
  • Veterans Administrations
  • Workman’s Compensation
  • State and local programs, community organizations
  • Viatical Settlement

Why choose Ezra Home Care over a franchise?

Ezra Home Care is large enough to handle all of your home care needs, yet small enough to give you the personalized service and care you deserve. Since Ezra Home Care is privately owned, we have a greater flexibility of accommodating our clients' needs. We are not bound by territory, and are capable of providing continued care even when our clients are being relocated to another areas. Our decision-making process is more efficient than that of a franchise because all of our decisions are made right in the office, without the need for a comparatively lengthy corporate approval process. Schedule a free Needs and Safety Assessment and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
