Do you know the saying, “A clean home is a happy home?” But for many seniors,  housekeeping or cleaning services can help older adults stay safe and live independently in their homes longer. And isn’t that something almost all of us aspire to do? Home and Community Support Services (HCSS) Grey-Bruce’s housekeeping services help seniors to stay self-sufficient and live comfortably in their own homes.

By outsourcing these tasks, people in their golden years can free up time and energy, so they can focus on more enjoyable, social activities to maintain their physical and mental well-being.

More Than a Clean Home: The Safety Impact of Housekeeping Services for

HCSS Housekeeping is an invaluable service that helps seniors and adults with a disability stay independent and safe.


An organized and clean home helps seniors remove clutter and slippery surfaces. Simple adjustments like removing loose rugs, securing electrical cords, and adequate lighting can all help reduce the chances of trips and falls.

Professional home cleaning can also prevent the spread of germs and bacteria–a particular concern for those with weakened immune systems. Regular dusting, vacuuming, and sanitizing high-touch areas our housekeepers provide can literally help to “clear the air” creating a more refreshed atmosphere that can help those with respiratory issues breathe a little easier.

Social Connections Through Housekeeping?

Home and Community Support Services Grey-Bruce cleaners are more than “maids:” they’re caring supportive community members who are there for their clients to share a smile, create a social bond and also to spot and address potential home hazards. And studies suggest even these so-called “weak ties” with friendly acquaintances can have a significant impact on people’s mood and well-being. Our housekeeping staff aren’t just there to wash the dishes or mop the floor–they’re there to spread a little kindness and add a dash of brightness to a senior’s day. Embracing cleaning support doesn’t just let you or your loved one focus on more enjoyable hobbies and activities, it also helps to promote a sense of well-being and independence.
