For the majority of us, housekeeping chores are time-consuming and tedious. After we’re done, we may be exhausted and sore. And then they pile up again, leading to a never-ending cycle of cleaning and straightening up. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to take care of these things for us?
For homebound seniors who live in the small and somewhat isolated town of Pacifica, such a service might be more than nice – it could very well be a necessity. Vacuuming floors, wiping down bathrooms, and even dusting can seem like impossible tasks to those who are ill and frail. The constant presence of dirt makes a perfect host for bacteria and viruses – ones that could land your loved one in the hospital. But how do you get them the help they need when the area boasts few resources or agencies refuse to travel to the senior’s location?
The Institute on Aging is aware of the challenges like these that the elderly face. That’s why if they need light housekeeping or other forms of senior home care in Pacifica, we bring it to them – just the way they deserve.
Maintaining Living Environments – so your loved one can keep their independence
In addition to taking a burden off seniors, light housekeeping may keep them in their own homes or apartments instead of facilities like nursing homes. One of the main reasons people have to live in such places is because they’re no longer capable of performing simple chores. Even if they’re able to attend to their personal care needs (such as feeding, grooming, and bathing themselves), their health condition or overall weakness may mean housekeeping is out of the question. At times, someone to visit a few times a week to wash dishes or disinfect surfaces is enough to allow the senior to continue living in their preferred environment.
Other ways we assist seniors includes offering individualized care plans, home safety evaluations, meal planning and preparation, and more. Of course, the IOA is more than happy to provide as much help as you need, whether it be a few hours a day, a few days a week, overnight, or 24/7.
