A clean home is a relaxing home. We have all had the time where so much is going on that the house is just a complete mess. There are clothes on the floor, the laundry isn’t done, the dishes are in the sink and the dust is starting to become noticeable.
At the end of the day, it is hard to sit down and relax when all of these things need to get done. Knowing that there is so much can be a source of stress and anxiety for so many people.
Having a marathon cleaning session is normal in those circumstances. You can then go to bed knowing that the chores were done, or at least partially done, so there isn’t as much to do when you wake up in the morning.
The Chore of Cleaning the House Never Ends
As the years progress, there is less that happens on a regular basis in the home. Kids grow up and move out so there is less traffic through the house. The days of kids running through the house after coming in from the rain are most likely a thing of the past.
Just because there is less going on in the home, it doesn’t mean that the chores completely end. The floors need to be cleaned. There is always laundry to do. Dusting is a non-stop activity as it seems that the dust is never fully removed.
One of the main companion care services is doing some of the light house cleaning. If there are dishes to be cleaned or laundry to done, our companions are there to help. It can be a daunting task for our aging loved ones to take care of all of these things on their own.
