Homemaker Care in Florida
Do you have a senior who wishes to age peacefully in their own home? Considering homemaker care may be a great option for you to explore — especially if you worry about their ability to perform basic tasks like cooking a meal, taking out the trash or making the bed.
Homemaker services can be the difference between your senior remaining in their home or living in a nursing home or an assisted living facility.
But that’s not all…
Homemaker care is ideal for helping to keep your senior safe, too. By taking the burden and worries out of activities like transportation or taking a shower, you can rest assured your senior is less likely to take a fall or risk other injuries if they were left to perform these alone.
How Do Homemaker Care Services Work?
One of the best things about our homemaker services is the care plans are completely customizable and based on your senior’s needs. From flexible schedules to tailored services, you can construct a plan that works the best for you and your senior. Typically, this starts by meeting with a caregiver who will assess your senior’s health and needs.
After that, you’ll choose specific services and care frequency. Your caregiver will plan to remain in constant communication with you and your family to provide updates on your senior’s health and condition.
What Kind of Services are Provided?
Since services and care plans are customized on a case by case basis, your senior may need just some or all of the services listed below. Here are some examples of homemaker services:
- Cleaning the home and keeping it organized
- Cooking and meal preparation
Helping with Tasks.
- Providing transportation
- Grocery shopping
- Medication reminders

There are also several items that you should not expect from homemaker services, such as skilled nursing or medical services, and heavy lifting and heavy yard work (shoveling snow and painting the home, as some examples).
The biggest service and benefit that homemaker services provide is the increase in your senior’s quality of life. Their goal is to keep your senior safe and comfortable while assuring you peace of mind.
