Devon Care Home Essentials - Good Housekeeping

At Hart Care we believe that our residents deserve to live in a safe, relaxing and hygienic environment where they feel comfortable at all times.

Here we explain some of the key reasons that a clean and well maintained care environment is essential for the welfare of the elderly people who live there, and benefits the entire community of the home:

Pride

The majority of residents in a care environment will have previously lived in their own homes where they will have been responsible for at least some of the housekeeping. This feeling of being ‘house-proud’ rarely leaves us in old age, and we believe that our residents should live in cleanly and attractive surroundings that they can be proud of when friends and relatives come to visit.

Hygiene

As our bodies get older and our immune system is weakened, we become more susceptible to viruses and infections. Because of this the team at Hart Care take every precaution to make sure that private rooms, communal areas and kitchens at the home have the highest standard of cleanliness - fighting the potential spread of harmful bacteria.

Safety

Trips and falls can be devastating, debilitating and even fatal for elderly people, especially as our bodies become more brittle and vulnerable as we age. At Hart Care we make sure that all staff are aware of their responsibility to keep the home clear of obstruction and slip hazards, making sure that our facility is neat, tidy and free of preventable accidents.

Comfort

At Hart Care we believe that maintaining high standards of housekeeping is a key element to ensuring the contentment and happiness of our residents. As an extension of our care we have created a clean, hygienic, secure and restful environment where elderly residents can feel relaxed and comfortable in their surroundings at all times.
