When you think of housekeeping services, you might think of someone coming in to clean your home once a week or month. But for seniors, housekeeping services can provide much-needed assistance with activities of daily living, like laundry, grocery shopping, and even meal preparation.
At Summer’s Landing, a premier assisted living community in Florida, our staff offers a wide range of senior living services—including housekeeping services—to help our residents live their best lives. Call 850.265.9829 to learn more about our housekeeping services and how we can help you or your loved one.
What Are Housekeeping Services for Seniors?
Housekeeping services for seniors are designed to help them with tasks that have become more difficult for them to do independently. However, the housekeeping offered by assisted living communities may not be the same as standard housekeeping services that you can find locally.
What Do Housekeeping Services Include?
Standard housekeeping services will take care of the following:
Summer’s Landing has senior housekeeping services that go beyond the standard, as it also offers:
- Grocery shopping
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
- Assistance with bathing and dressing
- Toiletry assistance
Our goal is to make life easier for our residents, so they can focus on enjoying their retirement. In assisted living communities, the staff can customize services like these to meet each resident’s unique needs.
How Much Is a Housekeeping Service?
How much is housekeeping—and is standard housekeeping priced differently from senior housekeeping? Traditional housekeeping services cost an average of $25 per hour. However, the cost of housekeeping services for seniors can vary depending on the type and amount of assistance needed. In some cases, senior housekeeping services may be covered by long-term care insurance or Medicare.
At Summer’s Landing, we offer a la carte pricing for our senior housekeeping services so that you only pay for the services you need. This means that you can tailor our services to fit your budget. We also offer an all-inclusive monthly fee covering a wide range of services, including housekeeping. With this fee, our residents don’t have to worry about additional costs for the care they need.
Benefits of Housekeeping Services for Seniors
There are many benefits of housekeeping services for seniors, both practical and emotional. Some of the most notable benefits include the following.
More Free Time
When seniors don’t have to worry about the day-to-day tasks of keeping up their homes, they’ll have more free time to enjoy their retirement. At Summer’s Landing, our residents often use their extra free time to socialize with friends, participate in activities and clubs, or relax in one of our comfortable common areas.
Improved Physical Health
Keeping up with household chores can be surprisingly demanding physically, particularly for seniors who may be dealing with chronic pain or mobility issues. By outsourcing these tasks to professional housekeepers, seniors can reduce their risk of injury and stay healthy longer.
Enhanced Mental Health
In addition to the physical benefits, mental health benefits come with using professional housekeeping services. For many older adults, maintaining their independence is extremely important. When they’re no longer able to keep up with the demands of cleaning their homes, it can lead to feelings of frustration, depression, and anxiety. However, with professional help from housekeepers like those at Summer’s Landing, seniors can maintain their independence and feel good about themselves.
