HOUSEKEEPING AND SUPPORTED LIVING SERVICES
Is there anything more pleasing and relaxing than sitting in a nice clean and tidy home, knowing you don’t have to do anything except enjoy? The clear surfaces and a fresh smelling home can be especially therapeutic for people with brain injuries.
Housekeeping with Unisus can mean simple companionship or running a few errands, help with chores such as dusting and vacuuming, or laundry and ironing, or it can mean a really deep, vigorous ‘spring clean’ (at any time of the year).
Our professional housekeeping assistants can help you keep your home just how you like it. You will have your own standards of housekeeping and we’ll manage the services you need to meet your own personal requirements. Perhaps there are some chores you like to complete yourself, in your own way? Following any brain injury incident, we will always support you to be as independent as possible whilst taking care of your safety and well-being.
The primary housekeeping services we provide are:
- Laundry and ironing
- Dusting and vacuuming
- Sweeping and washing floors
- Companionship and friendship
- Changing and washing bedding
- Preparing light meals and snacks
- Cleaning kitchens and bathrooms
- Organise belongings and paperwork
- Running errands and weekly shopping
- Taking out the rubbish and putting out the bins
Laundry and ironing
Laundry and ironing are among those jobs people either love or hate. Happily, our housekeeping assistants just love a huge pile of laundry and ironing. Acquired brain injury can be frustrating and stressful, so if doing the laundry stresses you out, your housekeeping assistant will take it on with great pleasure. You can relax and let us get on with the washing and ironing (and putting it all away!) if that’s what you want us to do.
Go on, call us on 0191 908 9384 to find out how we can send you a laundry and ironing whiz of your very own.
Dusting and vacuuming
These are the visible stressors you can’t avoid. Dust on the furniture, fluff on the floor, the kind of things that irritate when they aren’t done because you can always see them. Don’t worry, our housekeeping assistants are a whiz with a duster, and they’ll save you trying to push around a heavy vacuum cleaner, helping keep your home sparkly clean and relaxing for you to enjoy.
Why not call us on 0191 908 9384 to find out how we can take care of the dust bunnies so they won’t plague your life.
Sweeping and washing floors
Rather different from dusting and vacuum, sweeping and washing floors are also vital to your healthy living and safety. Clearing up spilled liquids and ensuring hard floors are disinfected could be essential in avoiding slips and falls or bacterial contamination. Our housekeeping assistants ensure you are safe and well in your own home.
Please call us on 0191 908 9384 to your plan for ensuring floors are kept safe and clean for your own health and well-being
Companionship and friendship
Some days, when you’re feeling down, because you can’t do all the things you used to or want to, all you want is someone to talk to. Not to ask you what you need, or want, however kindly meant, just someone to listen. To go out with for a cup of tea and a cake (maybe something stronger), see a film or a play, or just watch the water flowing in a river or children laughing in a park. For those days, our housekeeper assistants are ready to listen, to talk, to take you on visits, or days out.
Call us on 0191 908 9384 to discuss how we can offer a little companionship and friendship, to keep your world turning.
Changing and washing bedding
Changing the beds! This can feel like heavy duty work at times. Stripping of the duvet covers and sheets and getting them laundered is one part of the work. But wrestling the clean duvet cover on and hospital corners in the sheets can be even more exhausting. Is it really worth using all your energy on when one of our wonderful housekeeper assistants can do it all for you as a matter of routine?
Time to call us on 0191 908 9384 and let us know how we can help take over your duvet wrestling duties, so you don’t have to do this ever again.
Preparing light meals and snacks
Did you know, our housekeeping assistants are pretty good home cooks too? As part of your support plan, they can help rustle up some fresh, healthy light meals and snacks just for you. How enticing, to have home cooked food brought fresh to your table - and you won't even have to wash the dishes.
Give us a call us on 0191 908 9384 to discuss your options for light meals and snacks in the comfort of your own home.
Cleaning kitchens and bathrooms
There is nothing like sinking into the warmth of a freshly run bath, with or without scented bubbles, or of working creatively in a sparkling clean kitchen. Indeed, sparkling clean kitchens and bathrooms are vital to your health and well-being, free from liquid spills and cleaned with anti-bacterial materials to keep you safe from slips, trips or falls and reduce your risk of infection.
Call us on 0191 908 9384 to talk about a housekeeping assistant to help you keep your kitchen and bathroom sparkling clean.
Organising belongings and paperwork
Paperwork! Bills, statements, receipts and demands for payment can be extremely stressful. You may not be able to identify what they are even for. It may even be causing you difficulty in working out your household budget. An injured brain cannot always cope with disorganisation as it is still trying to recover from its injury and make sense of the world. Why not let our housekeeping assistant help you sort it out? They will explain everything that needs to be done – whether that is prioritising bills to pay or filing to complete.
You may just need a bit of help tidying up some of your things to be organised. Books to go onto shelves, dishes to go into cupboards and everything in between. There is no doubt, a well organised home becomes easier to look after and enjoy.
For your very own well organised life, call us on 0191 908 9384 to find our how we can help with paperwork and sort out your chaos.
Running errands and weekly shopping
Does the idea of running errands or doing a weekly shop make you shudder at the thought of it? It’s more than just making a list of all the things you need and picking them up. There’s all the hassle of actually getting to the shops, walking around where there are lots of people, finding everything you want, going to the checkout – a real person or a robot? Then having to make your way home again. Once there it's loading everything into the fridge, freezer and cupboards. Exhausting just thinking about it, isn’t it?
If you feel dread at the thought of shopping, call us on 0191 908 9384 to find out how our housekeeping assistants can even help you with this too.
Taking out the rubbish and putting out the bins
Some local authorities will take your main bin out for you for an extra fee and only by prior arrangement. But they won’t empty your internal bins, vacuum cleaner or recyclable materials. If this is a chore you struggle with why not just add it to the list of tasks on your homecare plan for our housekeeping assistants to take care of for you. One less thing for your recovering brain to worry about.
To ensure your bins and rubbish items are removed from your home regularly, call us on 0191 908 9384 to ensure we keep your home sparkling clean, tidy and free from rubbish building up.
For a full conversation about your potential homecare plan when recovering or learning to live with any type of brain injury, call us on 0191 908 9384 to find out just how much we can help improve your life and living arrangements.
