Washing dishes is something that you likely do every day.
It may even be a source of argument in your home with your children trying to determine which one is responsible for completing this task after dinner. Whether it is a chore that belongs to one person, you wash the dishes by hand, or you use a dishwasher, you know that keeping the dishes cleaned and the kitchen fresh is an important part of keeping your home healthy, safe, and comfortable for your family. While it is just important for your senior to have healthy, clean dishes, it may not be as easy for them to keep them this way. They may not be able to stand up long enough to wash the dishes or may struggle with weakness or range of motion issues in the hands. Fortunately, this is one of the many personalized tasks that an elder care provider can offer to your senior.
One of the greatest benefits of elder care is that the services are completely customizable for what is right for them while also allowing them to be able to pursue as much independence and control over their own lives as possible.
When it comes to keeping their dishes clean, an elder care provider can assist your parent by doing the dishes for them or by modifying the task in such a way that your senior is still able to be involved. Through this approach, the care provider can ensure that your parents’ housekeeping tasks are completed properly and effectively, but that your parent can still feel involved and experience the benefits of mental stimulation. This can include the care provider washing the dishes and your parents sitting and drying them, the care provider loading and unloading the dishwasher and your parents putting the dishes away, or other means of cooperation that give your parents support while still encouraging them to maintain their independence and do as much for themselves as they can.
Starting elder care for your aging loved one can be one of the best decisions that you make for them during the course of your caregiver journey with them.
An elderly home care services provider can be with your parent on a fully customized schedule to ensure that they have consistent access to the care and support that they need to manage their challenges and limitations in the way that is right for them. This means that your senior can address their health challenges, stay physically and mentally active, maintain their mental and emotional health and well-being, and continue to find fulfillment during this chapter in their life. As their family caregiver, knowing that your parent has access to this care can ease your stress and help you to focus your energy, attention, and resources on your parent and the other responsibilities in your life in the most efficient ways possible.
