Why You Should Consider Domestic Assistance

Domestic assistance NDIS

A person’s home is their safe space and it’s important for us to feel comfortable, living in a clean and orderly environment. However, aging or living with a disability can make maintaining a clean and presentable home challenging for some. 

Domestic Assistance is a game-changer for those who need a little bit of extra help. It can drastically improve your quality of life, improve your lifestyle and assist in managing illnesses, stress, or injuries. There’s a common misconception that domestic assistance can take away your independence; this could not be further from the truth. Domestic Assistance gives you the freedom to do things that matter and spend more time with family and friends.

This guide will look at what domestic assistance is, what it includes, and why you should consider domestic assistance. 

What is Domestic Assistance?

Domestic assistance offers advice and assistance to people with disabilities and seniors to improve or maintain their capacity to manage their everyday activities in a secure, healthy, and safe home or housing environment. It is the support that an elderly or disabled person may need to carry out all tasks in the house.

It may range from basic tasks like taking the rubbish out of the house to more comprehensive tasks like cleaning the whole house. Either way, the results are the same – it helps to make life more enjoyable and reduces the burden of living in an untidy home

Domestic assistance services include:

  • Taking the rubbish out
  •  Cleaning the bathroom
  •  Cleaning the kitchen
  •  Mopping or vacuuming
  •  Gardening and watering the plants
  •  General cleaning
  •  Laundry
  •  Sweeping outdoor areas
  •  Assistance with pet care
  •  Dusting
  •  Cleaning paths and steps
  •  Ensuring the food in the pantry and fridge is current

The list is long and always changed and optimised to the goals of those who require the services. Above all, the services must be tailored to match your needs.

Why should I consider Domestic Assistance?

The benefits you can receive from domestic assistance are very substantial. It helps reduce stress, improves overall health, saves on costs, and helps the seniors or people living with a disability make the most out of each day.

The following are a few key benefits:

1. It makes life easier for seniors, people with disabilities, and their family

Domestic assistance involves getting a professional to take care of your loved one’s daily chores, making their life easier. They don’t have to worry about cleaning the house, washing dishes, or doing laundry. This makes life easier for you as a family member so you can spend more quality time together and leave household chores to a Carer.

2. It reduces stress and improves mental wellbeing

When your aging loved one’s home is clean and neat, it boosts their mental well-being and clears their mind. But how exactly?

Getting domestic assistance means that your loved ones get the time to spend with family and friends, participate in the community, and engage in other activities they enjoy. Also, it means your loved one has someone to talk to and check on them. In turn, this improves their mood and boosts their social life, which, according to research, reduces stress and anxiety.

3. Domestic Assistance improves overall health

The impacts of a poorly maintained home environment can be detrimental to the health of seniors or those living with a disability. As seniors in particular age, it becomes more difficult to maintain the house and keep on top of chores.

Poor hygiene is associated with such illnesses as salmonella poisoning, e-coli, colds, and diarrhea, which are detrimental to your health. Having things out of place within the house can also increase the chances of falls or trips. Domestic assistance helps avoid all these diseases and injuries by ensuring the house is clean and orderly at all times.

4. Make the most of your energy with domestic assistance

Perhaps the most significant yet overlooked aspect of domestic assistance is the freedom it can offer. Domestic assistance helps with household chores, leaving your loved ones with the energy to do what makes them happy. 

5. Saves on costs

When the aging or disabled receive help cleaning the house, shopping, and preparing meals, they can save on costs as it opens up the opportunity for them to work should they choose.
