Marginal Gains: How Seemingly Small Actions Can Greatly Improve Seniors’ Lives

Marginal Gains: How Seemingly Small Actions Can Greatly Improve Seniors' Lives

Little things add up to big things. This is true in business, it’s true in sports, and it’s true for life in general. For example, something seemingly unimportant like homemaker healthcare can make a big difference.

Sometimes Seniors Need Help Looking After Themselves. Sometimes They Don’t. But Sometimes They Need Something In Between, Such As Homemaker Healthcare.

When many of us think of healthcare we usually envision personal care. Personal care involves helping seniors with what we at Executive Care call the “Activities of Daily Living”. These are the things we all must do every day, or at least regularly, to take care of ourselves. Examples include brushing our teeth, using the toilet, bathing, preparing and eating food, getting in and out of bed, etc. Some seniors cannot accomplish these tasks on their own. Sometimes they can but forget to or it causes them discomfort. In such cases, caregivers can visit seniors in their homes to help them.

But what if the problems seniors face are not with these issues? What if they can take care of themselves all right, but not their homes? Sometimes family members suggest seniors move into a senior care facility if they can’t take care of their homes anymore. But many seniors prefer living in their own homes. Why should they leave just because certain chores are difficult for them? Thankfully, with homemaker healthcare, they don’t have to.

What Is Homemaker Healthcare Service?

Homemaker healthcare involves caregivers helping seniors take care of their homes. This might seem like a luxury service to some, but it can be absolutely vital for some seniors.

Homemaker healthcare can involve just about anything that concerns taking care of one’s home. Dusting, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning the fridge and other kitchen appliances, cleaning the bathroom, meal preparation, laundry, and more. Taking care of a home is a lot of work. It can be a drag for everybody no matter their age but imagine scrubbing the stovetop with arthritic fingers or climbing basement stairs with a basket full of laundry on sore knees. These chores can be painful and even dangerous for some seniors.

As a result, some seniors neglect these chores. They put them off. Living in untidy and dirty homes can have major negative impacts on one’s mental health. Especially if the reason your home is unclean is because you can’t do chores you used to be able to do. How much can you really enjoy life if you don’t like your home? Or if you’re dreading doing the laundry once a week? Homemaker healthcare doesn’t just keep homes clean; it can improve the mental health of seniors.

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.
