If you are having problems bending or lifting, etc., that inhibits your ability to clean your home or apartment as you used to, perhaps you could benefit from CoA’s Homemaker or Chore services.
CoA Homemakers help you by doing light housekeeping, laundry, and grocery shopping. A typical visit may have them cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, and then dusting in the living room, bedroom, running the vacuum on the carpets, washing the kitchen floor, while they have a load of laundry in the wash.
The Chore workers handle the larger cleaning jobs around the home. They do carpet shampooing, wall washing, window washing, replace storms and screens, as well as basement, garage and yard clean-ups. A nominal fee may apply for materials such as carpet shampoo.
The Personal Care workers under the plan of direction set up by CoA’s licensed practical nurse provide seniors with assistance on their daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, transferring, mouth care, etc.
The Home Repair service does minor electrical, plumbing, and carpentry repairs around a senior’s home. They can install safety devices and also construct wheel chair ramps. Unfortunately, Home Repair workers cannot do work that would require a licensed contractor, but they can help repair leaking faucets, repair broken steps, install handrails in the bathroom, and check over a faulty light switch.
