Homemaking Services for Seniors

For as long as you can remember, your parents have never needed help with their ordinary housekeeping tasks. However, it’s common for the changes that come with aging – limited mobility, balance, and flexibility, for example – to make it difficult to complete those tasks. Menial household chores that they once took for granted can become a challenge. 
If you’re noticing these issues in an older adult you love, the homemaker caregivers at Senior HomeCare of Tucson are here to help! We offer older adults help at home to ensure their environment is as tidy as possible as they age at home!

 What Do Homemaking Services for the Elderly Entail?

Housekeeping and house cleaning services for the elderly can include anything the individual client needs our caregivers to do. We don’t make our services one-size-fits-all because we understand that each older adult has their own particular needs. We work closely with our clients and their loved ones to come up with housekeeping services that are ideal for each client’s unique needs, abilities, and inabilities. We provide a variety of house cleaning help for the disabled, as well as for able seniors who need an extra pair of hands. Some examples of tasks our homemaker caregivers complete for clients include: 

  • Washing linens 
  • Changing beds 
  • Light dusting and tidying up 
  • Decluttering the home 
  • Organizational help for seniors 
  • Removing safety hazards, such as clutter in the walkways 
  • Eliminating health or sanitation threats 
  • Sweeping and mopping floors 
  • Vacuuming 
  • Doing laundry 
  • Cleaning dishes 
  • Emptying the sink/dishwasher 
  • Grocery shopping 
  • Meal and snack preparation 
  • Mail retrieval, mail organization, and bill pay 
  • Organizing and simplifying paperwork 
  • Making things more easily accessible in the home 
  • Pet care – feeding, dog walking, etc. 
  • Tasks for other family members (respite) 

Our services are meant to allow older adults maintain as much independence as possible, while helping them with household tasks that may be physically taxing, such as tasks that involve bending, stooping, or light lifting. Our companion homemakers’ main goal is to help seniors maintain safe and sanitary homes while being able to enjoy simplified, more efficient daily lives. No matter what the household needs may be, we’ll do our best to get the job done. Also, if our caregivers notice something that’s outside of our range of abilities, we’ll recommend one of our partners who can take care of the task for you. And, our homemaker caregivers make notes every day, so our office staff stays informed about the particular needs of each client.

The Most Qualified Homemaker Caregivers in the Area 

Housekeeping Services for SeniorsAt Senior HomeCare of Tucson, we understand that bringing a care professional into the home to complete household chores can be a challenge. For older adults who once may have been fiercely independent and took a lot of pride in their home, having a stranger come into the home to help take care of it can be a potentially sensitive process. That’s why instead of bringing in strangers, we help older adults in our community build strong, genuine bonds with trained, vetted, and experienced care professionals. 

Our caregivers are required to undergo a thorough background check before working with our agency. We do so to ensure that the caregivers we assign to each person we care for are trustworthy and professional individuals. From there, we offer our caregivers expert training to make sure they are equipped to handle whatever challenge they encounter. Because we care about the comfort of everyone we help, we also match each client with a caregiver who matches their likes and dislikes, personality traits, and interests.  

Overall, we go the extra mile to help the older adults we care for feel as secure and comfortable as possible as they receive help managing the place that matters most: home. 

More Than Just a Clean House 

At Senior HomeCare of Tucson, we aren’t maids – we’re caregivers. That’s an important distinction that makes what our team offers truly special. Our companion homemakers’ goal is not just to clean our clients homes. It’s to find out what would make each person’s life easier. If that’s help sorting through junk mail and paying bills, that’s what we’ll do. If it’s taking a carload of old clothing to Goodwill, we’ll handle that as well. Sometimes it’s something as simple as recommending that a client with arthritis switch from a handheld can opener to an electric one. We do what needs to be done to improve our clients daily standard of living – pure and simple. 

Here’s an example: one of our clients with a mild form of dementia had one closet beneath the stairs that was particularly cluttered. We paired her with a caregiver who loves organization, and it was a match made in heaven. After a few visits, our caregiver had completely decluttered, cleaned up, and reorganized the closet. Our client could easily get into the closet, read the labels, and find what she was looking for. We made her life easier and prevented her from having to put herself in harm’s way to get something out of the closet. 

To us, homemaking services are a personal matter. It’s about taking care of tedious or hard-to-do tasks for our clients, but it’s also about a joint effort between the caregiver and the client to achieve an efficient, healthy, and happy home. We match the personalities of the caregiver and client for the right fit each time and tailor our services to the unique needs of the individual. Our light housekeeping service is about so much more than just cleaning – it’s about creating a happier home for your loved one.
