Light Housekeeping Services For Miami’s Elderly
For some older adults, cleaning the house can be difficult, due to physical limitations or the inability to reach high places. Bending over, scrubbing, and walking back and forth in the house can take a physical toll, and seniors with memory issues can forget to clean. It is often the case that seniors need a little bit of assistance with keeping their house tidy, clean, and safe.
Light housekeeping is one of the in-home senior care services offered by the professionals at Advancare. We help aging individuals maintain a clean and sanitary living environment by providing them with light housekeeping services in Miami.
What is Light Housekeeping?
When we talk about light housekeeping for seniors, what exactly do we mean? Compared to heavy cleaning, light housekeeping is more about cleaning up after oneself and providing seniors with peace of mind. The exact types of light housekeeping that we provide will vary based on the needs of the senior whose home we are cleaning. They are highly customizable and can include services such as dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, and making the bed.
For seniors who are still living independently but have physical or mental limitations, these light housekeeping duties are often neglected or left to family members to complete. Busy family members do not always have the time to visit their senior’s home to perform these duties. Hiring a light housekeeping service can make it easier for seniors and family members alike, allowing them to spend more quality time together instead of spending their time doing tasks such as the dishes or mopping.
Our cleaning services for the elderly are based on their individual preferences. Does your senior have a preferred type of cleaning product that they like to use in their home? If so, we can use that. If they have a specific way that they like their clothing or sheets folded, we are also happy to accommodate those needs. All in all, in addition to adapting to the type of light housekeeping that you need done, we also adapt to your preferred methods of cleaning. We understand that some seniors like to have things done a certain way and we tailor the way we do things around their preferences.

Benefits of a Clean Home
The longer your senior’s home goes without being cleaned, the greater the dirt and allergen buildup will be. In addition, an unclean home can lead to an increased amount of dust, germs, and pests. This can lead to negative health consequences and even decreased happiness and mental health. A clean home has the benefits of making the seniors feel that they have control over their life, making it easier for them to find things, and keeping their physical health as intact as possible.
