We all enjoy living in a clean environment, don’t we? After all, clean surroundings come with many benefits. For starters, they lessen the spread of germs and the symptoms of allergies. Clean surroundings also promote safety and help keep pests at bay. On the other hand, untidy surroundings not only raise the risk of acquiring sicknesses and infections but also raise the risk of serious injuries.
Unfortunately, for seniors, disabled persons, and other individuals with low mobility issues, a clean home or environment is something they cannot enjoy without outside help. For these individuals, even a seemingly simple task, like loading the dishwasher, can be extremely difficult, or in some cases, totally impossible.
Astin’s Homemaker Services
Our homemaker service is a form of in-home care that offers practical assistance with household chores to enable our patients to remain in an environment that is clean, safe, and healthy. Through this kind of arrangement, seniors and others can remain independent and promote their health and safety throughout.
Some of our homemaker tasks include but are not limited to the following:
- Light Housekeeping
- Changing Linens
- Watering Plants
- Meal Preparation
- Grocery Shopping
- Emptying Trash
- Safe-Proofing the Home
- Running Errands
- Small Dog/Cat Care
How Our Services Work
A well-trained homemaker/caregiver visits the patient’s home daily, or on an as-needed basis, and assists the patient with the above-described tasks. Our services are not meant for seniors and persons with physical limitations alone. They are meant for anyone who needs them, including young and healthy individuals who are too busy to attend to their homes.
Our services begin with the patient or family contacting us through a phone call or an email. Our contact details have been provided at the end of this page. But, you may also use our online contact form to leave us a message.
After this initial contact, our care coordinator sets up an in-home visit, where a registered nurse conducts a thorough assessment of the patient’s needs. This initial home visit is also an avenue for us to interact with the patient and the family as a whole and answer any questions they may have concerning the services and our agency.
