What is lighthousekeeping?
The duties involved in light housekeeping are those that maintain an orderly living space that allows the person being cared for to reside in a clean environment while obtaining a sense of peace of mind knowing that daily tasks are completed in their behalf.
A caregiver is responsible to clean up after him or herself and to attend to the upkeep of the client’s most immediate space, attending only to the areas that are affected while he or she is on duty. To secure comfort, the caregiver is expected to make the bed by preparing clean sheets and maintaining that they are changed regularly. This may also include addressing the client’s closet, doing only the client’s laundry and nightstand. Should an accident occur during the caregiver’s visit, cleaning the immediate area is a priority to avoid further damage and accidents in the part of the patient.
