Carrying out household chores can be strenuous and labour intensive for the fittest and healthiest individuals. For our clients who wish to remain in their own homes for as long as possible, keeping on top of all the domestic work involved with running their homes can be very daunting.
Helping Hands Domestic Care can ensure that homes are maintained to a high level of cleanliness along with being both hygienic and provide pleasant and comfortable surroundings for our clients to live in.
General cleaning can be arranged on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis depending on the needs of the client. It can include vacuuming, dusting, cleaning floors, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens, cleaning INSIDES of windows, insides of fridges and microwaves etc. Clients can instruct their allocated carer to do specific jobs each week or leave the cleaning to their workers discretion. In this instant, Helping Hands policy is that every area of the home is given the appropriate attention, no one area of a client’s home should be left unattended for too long – some jobs need doing every week and others need doing less often. Cleaning service in Poole and Bournemouth.
Helping Hands Domestic Care are mindful that housework can be the most challenging task facing the elderly, disabled people and adults with learning difficulties when living in their own homes.
This service is offered to clients who require a very labour intensive clean. Perhaps a client is moving into a property or out of a property and they need a “blitz” clean. It is also very popular for the elderly and infirm who have maybe been left to their own devices for a little too long and the standard of cleanliness in their homes is not what they would like it to be. A spring clean is enough to get the home back up to scratch and sometimes paves the way for a client to book a regular cleaning slot so things never deteriorate and are always manageable.
Laundry involves changing beds, washing clothes and bedding and ironing.
We all know that there is nothing more luxurious than climbing into a lovely clean, fresh smelling bed and wearing clean clothes. We ensure that all our clients can enjoy this even if they are unable to do this chore themselves.
For many clients who may struggle to get out (especially during the cold winter months) it is possible to arrange for somebody to call in, pick up a shopping list and go and collect the shopping.
On some occasions a client may just like somebody to accompany them shopping as they may be a little nervous to go on their own; this can also be arranged.
