Light Housekeeping

This is usually an area where everyone gets confused, caregivers as well as clients. As the name implies, the services performed are light. Commonly indoors, these are spaces frequently used by your loved ones and hence the need to be kept clean and in a state of decorum to ensure your surroundings are safe and healthy. Usually, these services will form part of your care plan so nothing is left for interpretation. Nevertheless, we are here for you. We encourage our clients to contact us in the event that something outside the daily chores of the caregiver’s duties needs to be handled. We will always do our best to accommodate you.
