What is Light Housekeeping?

You want to provide your parents with a safe and friendly environment to live in. Even though your parents cannot clean the house as they used to, that doesn’t mean that they have to go days on end living in a dirty house. Unfortunately, the simplest cleaning tasks at their age may be very difficult or impossible, due to illness or physical limitations.  But you can provide them with a gateway to help, by hiring a caregiver who tends to your parents needs, while at the same time does light housekeeping. 

What is Light Housekeeping?

Simply put, light housekeeping is basic chores performed around the house. Although you could probably come once in a week to clean the house yourself, most days it will remain unkempt. As a loving child, you probably don’t want to see your parents residing in such conditions. In order to help them out, you can hire a caregiver who does light chores and housekeeping on a regular basis.

What Does Light Housekeeping Include and Not Include?

Apart from looking after your beloved parents, a caregiver is also responsible for doing light housekeeping and chores. An aide can vacuum the rooms, tidy up clutter, dispose of the garbage, make the bed, do the laundry, and sweep/mop the floor. The aide can also dust, wash dishes, fold and put clothes away, change light bulbs, water plants, and wipe down bathroom fixtures.  Speak with your agency about the specific chores that must be completed on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.  Please be aware that the caregiver is not permitted to perform “heavy-duty” and outdoor chores, such as landscaping, washing windows (from the outside), pressure washing, swimming pool maintenance, and removing debris from gutters.

If your parents require that someone comes and performs these chores, they should hire a separate company that specializes in providing those services to them. For light housekeeping, caregivers are the perfect solution.
