What are cleaning services for the elderly?

As part of our Light Cleaning services, our partners ensure that your loved one lives in a healthy and cared for environment.

Light cleaning is the weekly cleaning that each of us would do in our loved one's home if we had the time to do it every time.

Why is there a need for a housekeeper for the elderly?

As your loved ones get older, they find it harder to do certain activities that require physical effort, such as cleaning. Problems usually start with those activities that involve lifting heavier objects or sitting in a less comfortable position with stress on the joints. For this reason, cleaning the toilet bowl, carrying a bucket of water to wash the floor, dusting hard-to-reach areas will be the first actions the elderly will do less often and their home will be less healthy.

Elderly people who insist on doing these activities alone are exposing themselves to back pain or risk of falls, and the medical consequences can be serious for them and for you as a family member.

Easy housekeeping services for the elderly help your elderly loved ones enjoy a hygienic and healthy environment where they are better protected from viral or bacterial infections.

Also, these services for your parents or grandparents ensure that they will not do activities that are risky for their health, which is why you will avoid visits to the emergency room.

What do cleaning services for the elderly include?

To ensure a healthy and caring environment for older people, our partners will:
  • Cleaning bathrooms: washing and disinfecting frequently used areas (toilet bowl, sink, tub/shower), mopping floors, organizing frequently used bathroom items (shampoos, soaps, etc.), changing and arranging towels on the stand or in the closet;
  • Cleaning the kitchen: cleaning and degreasing frequently used areas (sink, stove top, countertop or table, outside refrigerator, etc.), throwing away leftovers from dishes, washing and arranging dishes used during the day, sorting out expired or stale food from the refrigerator (only with the explicit consent of the elderly caregiver), throwing away trash, organizing frequently used items in the kitchen, etc..;
  • Cleaning rooms: airing out the space according to your loved one's wishes, sweeping/vacuuming and mopping floors, vacuuming carpets, dusting frequently used surfaces and removing easily accessible cobwebs, changing bed linens and tidying the bed, organizing light items - books/magazines, picking up clothes left around the house, etc., caring for houseplants, etc..;
  • Wash (machine), iron and tidy the elderly person's recently used clothes;
  • Pet care: feeding your pet and cleaning up after your pet;

We offer elderly care services in Arad, Bucharest, Cluj, Oradea and Timișoara. Sign up below if you want more info!
Our services are priced at 40 lei per hour.
Care services can be combined according to your preference (e.g. 1 hour shopping + 2 hours cleaning).
    For example, for a 60 m2 apartment, weekly cleaning will take between 3 and 4 hours. If the apartment has not been cleaned for a while, cleaning will take 5 to 6 hours.
    In our experience, the amount of time it takes to clean the rooms in a home depends on the purpose of each area, not just the size of the room:
    - Each bathroom takes between 1-1.5 hours to clean and sanitise properly;
    - The kitchen, usually a busy space for the elderly, will require 1-2 hours to be clean, hygienic and tidy;
    - The rooms need 45 min - 1 hour to be cleaned and tidied;
