Household Assistance Overview
Safety, cleanliness, and basic maintenance often erode in the home when a person’s abilities decline due to age or injury. The normal ongoing activities that most people complete around the house in a routine manner can become so much of a struggle they are postponed and finally ignored altogether. These little items can add up until the situation becomes one that needs a caring hand on a consistent basis.
That’s what our Household Assistance services provide for our clients. From washing clothes and dishes, vacuuming and dusting, to making sure the pets are cared for, the array of what we do brings a sense of relief to our clients and their families. Looking after basic household concerns becomes our responsibility, and the burden is lightened for other caregivers in the picture.
A major component we bring with our services is trust. Our caregivers have been thoroughly vetted by our company, and each is bonded and insured. Our program of quality control is ongoing and watchful. We consider your home and property more valuable than our own.
At the same time, we seek out caregivers with a heart of service. Taking care of those who face limitations is not a job for everyone, and we know the type of person you want involved is the same individual we want on our team. A special temperament is required that goes beyond training, and that is what we look for at all times.
Flexibility is a key feature of our plans. We will work with you to integrate elements from LightWay’s other offerings as needed. Some of the Household Assistance services our clients find most helpful are:
