6 Reasons Homemaker Services Might be More Important for the Elderly than You Think

6-Reasons-Homemaker-Services-Might-be-More-Important-for-the-Elderly-than-You-Think

Homemaker services for the elderly are becoming increasingly popular. But why is that? I mean, what’s so special about dusting and vacuuming? That’s all homemaker services for the elderly really entail, right? How can that be important? Well, homemaker services for the elderly can be very important in a number of different ways. This article will go over six reasons why homemaker services are really important to the elderly and their families.

1. Homemaker Services Make Life Easier For The Elderly

We all want our lives to be more convenient, don’t we? Of course we do. And let’s not minimize that. Most of us are willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a new gadget if it automatically adjusts the temperature in our house or pay for subscription delivery services that brings us toilet paper without having to think about it. So, yeah, the convenience is reason enough for many families to secure homemaker services for themselves or for their elderly family members.

2. Homemaker Services Allow The Elderly To Age In Place

To age in place is to grow old in your own private home. Many seniors have lived in their homes for years and even decades. They have grown very attached to them. The idea of moving into a senior care community because they can no longer properly look after their homes is very demoralizing to them. Even suggesting it to them can be the cause for big fights. And some seniors see such a move as the beginning of the end. There are a lot of complex emotions wrapped up in such a move, so it seems silly to bring it up just because your elderly loved one is struggling to clean the bathroom. Homemaker services allow the elderly to remain living in their beloved, clean, and tidy homes.

3. Homemaker Services Can Save You Money

Even if you are not particularly attached to your home and you don’t mind the idea of living in a senior care community, there’s still a good reason to stay put and enlist homemaker services instead: it’s cheaper. Individual cases may vary, but because senior care communities charge rent and fees, it’s usually more affordable to pay for homemaker services instead.

4. Homemaker Services Can Improve Emotional Wellbeing

Living in a dirty home is not good for your mental health, let alone your physical health. This is even truer if you want to live in a clean home, but you just don’t have the energy or strength to clean it anymore. Living in a clean home just makes you happier.

5. Homemaker Services Allow Families To Spend Quality Time Together

Without homemaker services, you might spend all of your time with your elderly loved one cleaning, cooking, or running errands. Homemaker services mean that a caregiver takes care of all that so you can sit down with your elderly loved one, talk, and enjoy each other’s company.

6. Homemaker Services Open The Door To Further Care

Many seniors will need higher levels of care than homemaker services eventually. But receiving homemaker services first can make the transition to something like personal care much smoother.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.

I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
