The days are getting longer and that means Spring is just around the corner. It’s time to open up the windows and let the fresh air in. For many it’s also the time of year when you think about freshening things up with “a good Spring cleaning”. Seniors may think this sounds like a great idea, but one that is often very difficult for people to accomplish as they age. Prescott Maid to Order would like off Prescott seniors some tips for making that Spring cleaning a reality.
Ask for help – Don’t feel like you have to do it all yourself. Think about reaching out to loved ones for some assistance. It not only makes the tasks easier, it’s also a good time to bond. And you may even find some items that you can share with the next generation while you’re still here to tell them the stories that go with the object.
Make a list – Write down the areas that need to be cleaned out. Don’t forget:
- Medicine cabinet – Remove all medications and prescriptions that are expired, as well as ones that you no longer use.
- Refrigerator and pantry – Eliminate all food that is expired.
- Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors – Replace all batteries.
- Rooms and hallways – If you have any light bulbs that aren’t working, now is the time to get them replaced
Eliminate Clutter – It may be difficult to part with the items you’ve accumulated over the years, but hoarding the things that you rarely use takes up space, and can negatively impact your physical and mental health. If you don’t use it, consider either giving it to a relative or to a local non-profit so that you can help others. Be realistic when decided yes, no and maybe on those items that you haven’t seen in the last year!
Reorganize – Now that you’re getting rid of clutter, it might also be a good time to reorganize things so that they are easier to find and also easier to reach!
An extra helping hand can also take care of the chores that are difficult for you to complete on your own, such as dusting in hard-to-reach places, or rearranging large, bulky pieces of furniture.
