Home Instead Senior Care Offers Tips for Tidying Up

OMAHA, Neb., April 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As people age, keeping up with the physical demands of housework can become more challenging. Spring is a great time to check in on older loved ones and spend time engaging in the annual ritual of spring cleaning. Freshening up a home can reduce clutter, improve overall mood and create a healthier environment for seniors to enjoy.

"Tidying up the home not only makes people feel happier, it can help seniors stay safe and healthy," said Lakelyn Hogan, gerontologist and caregiver advocate at Home Instead Senior Care. "Even small tasks like replacing dim light bulbs, tossing outdated mail and dusting shelves can make a meaningful difference."

In addition to removing dirt and grime, spring cleaning also provides health benefits for older adults. Even small tasks such as dusting or wiping down counter tops can help seniors stay active. And decluttering can reduce hazards that might lead to falls. The National Council on Aging estimates one in four adults age 65 and older fall each year, resulting in 2.8 million emergency room visits.

Home Instead recommends the following tips for tidying up this spring:
