House care services are provided to seniors by private companies, government agencies, and volunteer organizations. Senior care can range from helping with personal hygiene tasks like bathing and dressing, to specialized help with regulating one’s urinary and bodily functions, or helping to manage one’s environment, including but not limited to preparing meals and ensuring the safety of personal belongings. These services can also include helping with safety assessments or other types of home modifications to make the senior independent and safe. A large majority of house cleaning services focus on providing safe living conditions for seniors in order to promote long term health and happiness.Learn more by visiting TruBlue of Centennial
As most homeowners are more sensitive about their financial situation than they were in the past, there are a growing number of seniors who are now requiring assistance with making some minor or major home repairs. Some repairs may include replacing broken floor boards, bathroom and kitchen countertops, updating electrical wiring, or obtaining new air conditioning units or other electronics. House cleaning services can be instrumental in assisting seniors with these repairs, as many have no knowledge about the necessary home modifications or repairs that must be made, and are not equipped or experienced to provide this type of specialized help. Most house cleaning services also offer home modifications or repairs in the form of do-it-yourself guides that outline step-by-step instructions for making simple repairs to common household items. Some companies are even licensed to conduct home repairs in areas outside their normal scope of practice. This helps to provide a more rounded service to seniors who require some type of assistance with making repairs to their homes.
Another popular need for house cleaning services is maintaining the landscape around the senior citizen’s home. Landscaping projects can range from mowing and trimming lawns, to planting flowers and shrubs, to making the backyard safe and inviting with designated sitting and resting areas. Lawn care services can also include pulling weeds, fertilizing lawns, mowing and trimming leaves, and any other general yard work needed to maintain the appearance of the entire property. All of these DIY lawn care services can give seniors the advantage of being able to enjoy the yard work that needs done, as well as being involved with the overall landscape maintenance of the property.
