For those of us who are lucky enough to live in Honolulu, the spring season isn’t much of a change from what we’re used to. We get sun every day and we don’t have yearly snowfalls to remind us of how precious that is. But even if we haven’t noticed, spring has indeed arrived, and with that, a yearly ritual that many people commit to every year — spring cleaning.
Spring is a traditional time of the year to conduct a deep cleaning of the home. Somehow, this just kind of became a tradition across the country, and you can bet that plenty of people in Hawaii do it too, including our elderly.
If you’ve been considering our Honolulu caregiver jobs, you may have an opportunity to bless the life of senior citizens this year by helping them with their spring cleaning. Here are some reasons why this would be a boon to our elderly citizens:
Seniors With Home Care Only Get Simple Cleaning: One of the jobs of a senior home caregiver is to help them with their essential chores, such as laundry, food prep, and — you guessed it — cleaning. Unfortunately, caregiver cleaning usually only covers the basics. Easy stuff, like dishes, spills, and stains. But during spring, we like to go the extra mile and clean much deeper than we usually would! It’s not something that’s required, but it can be very helpful to the seniors we serve.
Every Home Needs A Deep Clean Eventually: Deep cleans are usually an important component of spring cleaning, and there’s a reason why — you usually don’t get down and dirty when you’re just cleaning up average, everyday messes. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that a deep clean always becomes necessary after a certain point. Dust, dirt, and grime tend to build up in homes, and it’s good to buckle down and commit to a more exhaustive cleaning job sometimes.
Spring Cleaning Can Reveal More Important Problems: It’s not uncommon, in the spring cleaning process, to find other issues in the home that have gone undetected. Seniors with homecare tend not to move around a lot or get into the little nooks and crannies of their home. If you’re doing a more comprehensive cleaning job, you may discover issues that the senior wasn’t aware of, such as ants or leaks. Sometimes tiny problems are symptomatic of much bigger ones, and by bringing them to light, you could end up doing a huge favor for the senior you’re serving!
