Most caregiving agencies provide attendants who perform housekeeping services, which means maintaining the home in a hygienic and tidy manner. “Housekeeping” typically means cleaning up after meals, mopping up spills, laundry of the client’s clothes and linens, and picking up items that might be a hazard to the client’s safety. Occasional vacuuming and dusting may be requested if there’s time.
On the other hand, “housecleaning” includes maid-type services and deep-cleaning of the home, such as cleaning floors or windows, moving boxes and furniture, etc. At this time, WeCare Home Assistants does not provide housecleaning services, but can refer local maid service companies, if desired.
