Home Cleaning Tips For Seniors

Updated: Feb 13, 2023


Home cleaning can be a daunting task for seniors, especially those with limited mobility or health issues. However, keeping a clean and organized home is important for maintaining a safe and healthy living environment. Here are some tips for making home cleaning easier for seniors:

  • Break cleaning tasks into smaller, manageable chunks: Rather than trying to clean the entire house in one day, divide the cleaning into smaller tasks that can be accomplished over several days. This will prevent fatigue and make cleaning less overwhelming.

  • Use ergonomic cleaning tools: Many cleaning tools, such as brooms, mops, and vacuum cleaners, are now available with ergonomic designs that are easier to hold and use. These tools can help reduce strain on joints and muscles

  • Prioritize safety: Cleaning can be dangerous, especially for seniors with limited mobility. Make sure to have good lighting, clear walkways, and use non-toxic cleaning products, to prevent slips and falls.

  • Keep things organized: A cluttered home can be difficult to navigate and can be a fire hazard. Regularly declutter and organize the home to make it easier to move around and to keep track of belongings.
