Keeping a clean home can be a difficult task for individuals with disabilities due to the inability to reach high places or difficulty moving for long periods of time. Cleaning help for seniors and individuals with disabilities can vary in levels of service, but we want to specifically examine light housekeeping and what that entails.
When looking for help with cleaning, you’ll often see the term “light housekeeping” thrown around. But what does that entail? It’s simple. Light housekeeping is just that … “light.” It’s cleaning up after oneself and providing peace of mind rather than heavy cleaning.
Light housekeeping through the NEILS Consumer-Directed Services and In-Home Services includes:
There are times when a family caregiver cannot meet the growing demands of their own household, while trying to meet the needs of those they care for. These situations create a need for heavy housework that caregivers are not able to meet. During these special circumstances, it is appropriate to contract the services of a housekeeping service that is properly trained, licensed and insured to provide those heavy housekeeping duties. NEILS can provide resources here, too. Give us a call at 573-221-8282 or come see us at 909 Broadway, Suite 350, in Hannibal, MO.
