Cleaning Tips For Summer – Senior Care
As many will appreciate, a thorough Spring clean will have an enormously positive effect in your life as you usher in the Summer.
That said, as one age, the enormity of the task can be a challenge for many people, causing many people to put off the various cleaning tasks to the point you never get around to doing it.
This read will cover some of the best tips for Spring cleaning that will make the process a fun and enjoyable endeavor.
#1. Invite Family Or Friends To Help
Conducting a thorough clean-up of your house will require some reaching and bending. As such, if you any difficulties in reaching and bending, you do not want to exert yourself too much. Instead, you should request a lending hand. Having some support while you clean will help you get everything cleaned up in a safe manner. Importantly, it is a nice way of socialising. If you need it you can contact your local senior care agency for help. For all the seniors in need of home care services but struggling financially, Medicaid is something to look into. Even though it provides many benefits for the seniors, home care coverage being just one of them, many Medicaid members aren’t using all of them.
#2. Tackle The Crucial Tasks First
To be efficient with the clean-up, create a to-do list. Within that list, you should prioritise certain tasks. For instance, you should make checking smoke and carbon monoxide detectors a priority. Another priority tasks should be cleaning the fridge. Next on the list should be sweeping and vacuuming the floor and dusting off the furniture.
#3. Declutter Your House
Items or furniture that clutter the walkways should be relocated before any cleaning begins. While doing this task, you can also take the opportunity to get rid of certain items that take up a lot of space or items you no longer use. You can give such items to your family or friends or you can donate them to your local charity.
#4. Brighten Up Your Home
You should make your Spring cleaning an opportunity to create a well-kept and safe space. However, you can also take the opportunity to introduce some colours through bright accessories. For instance, you could introduce vibrant Spring flower arrangements. You could add colourful cushions.
