Aging is not something to be ashamed of. In fact, we believe it is something to be celebrated! It can feel embarrassing for seniors to bring in homecare assistance because it feels like losing their independence. Asking for help is one of the bravest things a person can do; accepting use is another thing entirely.

No one wants to lose their independence, which is incredibly challenging for seniors who have cared for themselves their entire lives. Going from hyper-independence, perhaps even being a caregiver themselves, to now requiring assistance for mundane tasks is a tricky and uncomfortable transition.

At Compassion Network, we believe in maintaining the dignity of everyday life for seniors and people with chronic conditions. There is no shame in receiving help to ensure your quality of life remains steady and sustainable. It is so important for seniors to have the ability to maintain their independence, autonomy and freedom.

A cleaning service for seniors can include:

  • General housekeeping (bathrooms, kitchens, floors, bedrooms)
  • Laundry
  • Changing linens and bed sheets
  • Decluttering & Organization
  • Washing walls, windows & floors as needed
  • Keeping appliances & cabinetry clean
  • Deep cleaning service available

Holistic Cleaning Service

When a person’s health deteriorates mentally or physically, their home’s cleanliness is the first to go. We get it, and we’re here to help. Compassion Network believes in a holistic approach to home care. The state of one’s home directly reflects their mental state: a clean, tidy home helps maintain a clean, tidy mind!

Maintaining a clean, comfortable home is a significant aspect of independent living. As we age, it’s natural that areas around the home will become de-prioritized, cluttered or messy. Everyone deserves to live in a safe, uncluttered space, which is why Compassion Network views home care holistically.

These cleaning services are not meant to be deep cleans. They are focused on maintaining the original standard of the home, whatever that looks like for the client. Deep cleaning services are available but must be discussed in advance so your cleaners arrive adequately prepared.

Aging in Place

Your aging loved one deserves to thrive in their home, not only survive. Cleaning services tailored for seniors are focused less on a deep clean and more on maintaining the day-to-day tidying of their home. No two clients are alike, and our services are reflective of that. We firmly believe a happy home is much more important than a clean home.

Some clients need help with laundry and general cleaning around the house. Others require assistance with decluttering and organizing their homes. Some require all of that and more! Services should be tailored to fit the needs of each individual client.

More Than A Cleaner

At Compassion Network, we take the vetting of our staff incredibly seriously. Housekeepers who enter your home should have undergone a thorough criminal record check and are bonded and insured. Your safety and well-being is paramount.

Cleaners for seniors are more than just maids tidying about the home. They build relationships with their clients by providing companionship, conversation, as well as their housekeeping services. When entering a home, they treat it like their own. Everything is treated with the utmost care and attention, cleaned to the highest standards, with products trusted and personally used.

Bottom Line

A clean home is a safe home, especially for our clients with dementia. When a cleaner enter a client’s space, everything is restored to its original order to maintain the client’s routine.

We recommend having a recurring visit scheduled weekly, bi-weekly or monthly to maintain the routine. Depending on the client’s budget and financial situation, a flexible schedule can be designed to work for and with the client.
