How Homemaking Services Improve The Lives Of Seniors

How Homemaking Services Improve The Lives Of Seniors

Homemaking services are too often overlooked when people discuss senior care. It might seem like they are an extra to, or not as important as, other forms of care, but homemaking services can make a big difference.

Homemaking Services Make Life More Convenient.

Let’s start with the most obvious and what’s probably the least crucial, but most widely enjoyed benefit of homemaking services: it just makes life easier. Who likes changing the bed linen? Who enjoys taking the trash out? Who wakes up in the morning and says, “I’m really looking forward to cleaning the inside of the refrigerator today!”? Nobody. Regardless of any health concerns, having somebody else take care of these tedious and sometimes arduous tasks just makes life more pleasant.

Homemaking Services Can Alleviate Pain.

Household chores are annoying, but for most younger people, they’re not painful. But for seniors, they often are. Lugging around a vacuum cleaner or vigorously scrubbing a greasy stovetop can exacerbate muscle or joint pain. These household chores can also be exhausting for many seniors. Homemaking services improve the lives of seniors by sparing them painful chores.

Homemaking Services Can Make Seniors’ Lives Safer.

Some of these chores aren’t just tiring and painful, they can actually be dangerous. Imagine a 75-year-old having to carry a laundry basket down and up dark, narrow basement stairs. That could be a recipe for disaster. It would be much more prudent to have a caregiver do it for them. Similarly, some errands can be dangerous. Some seniors struggle to drive because of poor eyesight. But they need to get groceries, medication, and get to appointments. Having somebody else take care of that driving is much safer.

Homemaking Services Can Reduce The Chance Of Seniors Contracting COVID-19.

It might seem counterintuitive, but homemaking services can keep seniors safe from the coronavirus. How can this be in a time when we shouldn’t be inviting other people into our homes? Well, how many people do you come into contact with when shopping for groceries? There are a number of ways seniors can be exposed to the coronavirus in grocery stores or when running other errands. One caregiver who takes care of those errands for them, and then follows strict COVID-19 protocols when dropping off those groceries, presents much less of a risk.

Homemaking Services Allow Seniors To Age In Place.

The alternative to homemaking services is to move into a senior living facility where these tasks are performed by the staff. But many seniors don’t want to leave their homes. Furthermore, homemaking services are cheaper.

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.
Cindi E
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.
Judge Naomi E
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.
