It is so important to keep an elder’s home spic and span, therefore keeping them organized and healthy to boot. I haven’t iterated for some time now how important certain things are to senior citizens.
Keeping your clients fed – healthy foods – is of course number one. In addition to that, making sure that they are hydrated is just as important. Then there are the factors of exercise followed up by enough rest and relaxation to keep their bodies going. Finally, cleanliness of body and household keeps the germs off and helps with the mental state of being as well. If an elder feels as though they are clean and organized, it tends to keep their minds functioning on a higher note as well.
Elderly caregivers can be worth their weight in gold if they follow these simple exercises. In turn, they show their clients full well that they believe that With Age Come Respect.
Depending on the client and the circumstances, I clean either weekly or bi-weekly for most clients. Those that just need a more detailed hand can be once a month.
Needless to say, keeping a client’s castle clean is of great import. I feel it necessary to do whatever is possible to keep my clients in the best health possible and to show them that I do, indeed, really care!
