Housekeeping

Our Housekeeping Service

Housekeeping can be particularly daunting to keep on top of for those who are living with a disability and for those older and more vulnerable. With reduced mobility, a long-term condition, or a memory that isn’t what it used to be, housekeeping duties can often become impossible tasks that get forgotten about or postponed. At Bridgewater Home Care we are passionate about making home living possible the long term and aim to take away the daily stresses or responsibilities that may inhibit your loved one from maintaining their independence at home.

With our housekeeping services we can help take care of those light housekeeping tasks that may otherwise be pushed to the back of the list, ensuring that your loved one is always living in a clean and safe environment. We know how important tidiness and cleanliness is to one’s quality of life, therefore we will build in any required housekeeping tasks into our care visits and ensure daily duties are taken care of.

Housekeeping can include a variety of day-to-day tasks to maintain and improve the quality of the home environment, such as:

      • Sanitising surfaces and appliances – It is very important to keep the home clean and sanitised. Our Care Specialists can dust, clean and sanitise all surfaces and appliances regularly around the home to keep it clean and fresh.

     

      • Hoovering / Vacuuming – it becomes increasingly difficult to run a heavy hoover around the house in older age but this is ever so important for maintaining good hygiene and cleanliness. We can hoover floors, carpets and upholstery and dispose of waste.

     

      • Mopping – regular mopping comes hand in hand with hoovering floors and surfaces, we are more than happy to mop floors for our clients.

     

      • Dusting – let us take care of dusting around the home, whether it be surfaces, glassware, appliances and any hard-to-reach places.

     

      • Tidying of the main living space – decluttering and tidying up of main living areas and putting the wellbeing of your loved ones first so they live in a clear and safe environment.

     

      • Washing up or unloading and loading dishwasher – once dishes start to stack up it can be extremely daunting to manage, especially with reduced mobility in older age. We can assist with regular washing and drying of dishes and putting all clean dishes away in easy to reach, organised cupboards.

     

      • Making the bed – a daily task that can often be neglected. We want to create a tidy and clean environment for your loved one through the simple but effective task of making the bed each morning.

     

      • Changing the bed – as well as making the bed each day, we can ensure the bed linen is regularly changed and cleaned.

     

      • Laundry including washing, drying and ironing – Keeping on top of laundry can really enhance quality of life and mental health in the home. Our Care Specialists can help with gathering laundry, washing, hanging out to dry, and putting clothes away so the laundry never builds up to an unmanageable level.

     

      • Taking out the bins – We can ensure bins are taken out for collection on time every week and put fresh liners in all bins around the home.

     

If there is anything more specific that a loved one may need some assistance with or requires particular day-to-day attention to certain areas, we are confident that we will be able to help. We want to give you peace of mind and assurance that general household duties are being taken care of to keep your loved one safe and comfortable in their home.
