There is so much to enjoy once we reach the Golden years! It is a precious and also vulnerable time of our lives, where we require a slower pace, consistent rhythms and schedules, and impeccable organization to ensure we get the most out of it!
To begin with, senior citizens should live in a hazard-free environment, avoiding: slippery floors, high shelving units, excessive dirt and fumes, unlabeled pantry foods and medications, obstructed paths, and hoarding.
The way you organize your cleaning methods is a HUGE part of the senior care process. According to our research at Sparkling Clean Pro. here are our BEST 5 tips:
TIP 1 – Sparkling Clean’s deep cleaning and eco-friendly services
Eco-friendly is absolutely the go-to cleaning method for old people. When it comes to health concerns, GREEN cleaning products guarantee the absence of fumes, toxic chemicals, toxic residue, and VOC (volatile organic compounds) getting into your lungs, your skin, or even your food!
By choosing GREEN cleaning you mean you won’t have toxins affecting your immune system, and respiratory systems, stimulating allergies and rashes, affecting your eyes, and allowing toxins in your bloodstream.
At this stage of our lives, we require impeccable air quality! It is also a time that we have increased dead skin cells and weak hair follicles, which in conjunction with our slower mobility, prevents us from thoroughly cleaning up-keeps. For this reason, we recommend senior citizens enroll in Sparkling Clean Pro. recurring house cleaning services! We guarantee high-standard, ethical, and health-safe cleaning!

TIP 2 – Extension tools
Maybe a broom or a long stick isn’t just a stick. Maybe it could be a great tool to reach for the unreachable!
At the senior stage of our lives, our muscles become increasingly tightened, lowering our mobility and flexibility. For this reason, any chance of falling is a number one concern, since the body requires extensive time to heal. This is why Sparkling Clean Pro. recommends having everything a senior citizen needs at reach. Shelving units, jars, spices, plates, clothes, socks, toiletries, pantry, medication, books, and pet food!
However, at times, some of these objects fall and roll under furniture, or some of these objects are on high shelves, that we forgot to leave at reach!
For those occasions don’t go up on a ladder or chair, or frequently bend to pick something up from the floor, or under your bed or coach. We recommend picking sticks, or a broom as your friendly tool! Leave 2 or 3 of them, around your house at strategic places so you can just pick it up as you need.
TIP 3 – Organization
This step for Senior Care is extremely important you create a clear organization system in all rooms. This means compartments, boxes, and labels! Your rooms will not only be tidy but you can see at a glance what you need when you need it.
For this tip, we recommend doing the sorting and labeling process in pairs, with a friend, a caregiver, or a family member.
TIP 4 – Community
Community is the name of the game. We need the community to thrive in anything we do! For senior citizens, we need community for socializing, feeling loved, and also too, to love and to feel useful by sharing our life experiences and knowledge with friends and younger generations! Community is a big part of Senior Care, one that balances their psychological and emotional health.
Community is also the channel senior citizens have to reach out for help. From new food recipes to picking something up for them, taking them grocery shopping, helping them get something from a high shelf, and most importantly letting someone know if they are in an emergency.
