The Benefits of Senior Care and Light Housekeeping
Read how housekeeping is a vital part of any senior care plan and how this helps to keep seniors safe.
As seniors age, they often have difficulty keeping up with daily chores. Muscles become weaker, chronic pain makes once simple tasks next to impossible, and other things may simply be forgotten. Regardless of the reason behind the challenges, when housekeeping falls behind it not only makes the home less appealing, which impacts a senior's sense of well-being, but it can also lead to unsafe conditions, which increases the risk of falls, illness, and allergies.
