Collier Home Care Can Help With Housekeeping Chores
Cleaning is a challenge for most people as they try to find the time to make their homes presentable in between work, family responsibilities, and life. While it’s never easy, housekeeping can be particularly tough for the elderly or those who are becoming dependent on others for help or homebound. In fact, it is often the first service that a senior needs in their home.
At Collier Home Care, we are committed to helping seniors throughout Naples, Florida live independently, comfortably, and safely in their homes. Maintaining cleanliness in the home is critical to this objective as seniors are more susceptible to getting sick and, when they do, it is often much harder for them to get well again.
Light Housekeeping Versus a House Cleaning Service
People often confuse light housekeeping that a home health aide provides and a house cleaning service.
- Light housekeeping is a service provided by CNAs and HHAs and includes light duties such as washing dishes, putting dishes away, cleaning off countertops, vacuuming, mopping, dusting, laundry, and changing bed linens.
- House cleaning and deep cleaning chores are separate services offered through our sister company, Clean 360. These chores include sanitizing the toilet, sanitizing the tub/shower, cleaning out cabinets, cleaning the fridge, and cleaning the oven – chores that are outside a CNA’s or HHA’s scope of practice.
Since we understand everyone has different needs, we’ll meet with you or a loved one to develop a personalized cleaning plan.
Clean 360 Services:
- Cleaning the bathrooms (disinfecting toilets, tub/shower disinfected, sinks scrubbed and disinfected, mirrors cleaned, trash emptied, etc.)
- Cleaning the kitchen (countertops and backsplash disinfected, sinks scrubbed and disinfected, cabinets cleaned, trash emptied, appliance exteriors cleaned, fridge exterior/interior cleaned, microwave exterior/interior cleaned, etc.)
- Cleaning the living room, halls, bedrooms, etc. (general straightening, vacuuming, dusting, baseboards dusted, trash emptied, etc.)
- Laundry (washing clothes, putting clothes away, changing bed linens, etc.)
