Senior care services can do a lot more for your elderly family member than she might think, especially in terms of everyday tasks that have to be done.
Cleaning and Housekeeping Chores
It takes a lot more time and energy to keep up with household chores than your senior might realize. That’s all energy and time that she can spend on tasks that she enjoys far more. Senior care providers can take over the vacuuming, dusting, and other chores so that your senior can just relax. If she’s still uncomfortable with the idea, play with the timing. Help once a month might be more acceptable to her than weekly help is.
Laundry is another task that can build up and get out of hand a lot more quickly than you or your senior might realize. It’s possible that someone else could take over that chore for your senior. It’s a good feeling having your clean clothing just appear in your closet without having to work so hard to make that happen.
Cooking and All that Goes with It
Some people just don’t enjoy cooking and there’s nothing wrong with that. If your senior hates cooking, though, that might mean she’s not eating as well as she should be. In the interests of improving her nutrition levels, home care providers might be the best solution. They can do the shopping and meal prep and get delicious food on the table. This might be the fastest answer to getting your senior to eat healthier.
Keeping Everything Organized
Your senior’s organizational needs can change over time. Where things made sense before may not be practical storage locations now. It’s helpful to have someone come in who can move those items around to places that make far more sense and are safer for your senior.
Little Tasks that Add Up
So many little tasks, like sorting junk mail and taking the trash out, are ones that you don’t think about until the task gets to be a larger one. You can help your senior to avoid this by having someone handle those for her. If she never has to think about them, that’s a huge relief right there.
Your senior may have some other ideas for how senior care providers can help her around the house. Make a list together of some of those ideas and put them to the test. Those might be chores that neither you nor your senior have to worry about from now on.

As a practicing Registered Nurse, Etelka was keenly aware of a void in quality patient care that could be provided in the home. She embarked upon a journey to develop a home health care agency that would exceed all expectations and become a trusted partner to physicians and patients.
A Distinguished Career From Nurse to Director of Nursing to President of Home Services Unlimited
Etelka’s distinguished career followed a logical progression to her position as President of Home Services Unlimited. She graduated as a nurse practitioner with a Bachelor of Nursing (RN) in 1972 from Meshgorya University in the Ukraine, close to where she lived with her family. She married her husband Phil in 1973 and decided in 1977 that they would relocate to the United States to be closer to family and to come to this land of opportunity. With an eagerness to continue her budding career, Etelka sat for and passed her Boards in the U.S. in 1979.
A Love and Talent for Working with the Elderly
Etelka began her nursing career in the U.S. at Colonial Crest, now part of Golden Living, where she was the In-service Coordinator, the Director of Training and Education and Director of Nursing, a position she occupied for several years.
With a group of partners, she co-founded Adept Corporation, which operated group homes for the mentally challenged. The business was successful and in 1996, Etelka sold her share to return to her roots, caring for the elderly.
In January of 1997, Etelka opened Home Services Unlimited as a fully licensed business to provide home health care. In her quest to learn to do better for her patients, she had already obtained a Masters in Healthcare Administration (MHA) in May of 1990 from the College of St. Francis. As President of Home Services Unlimited, Inc., Etelka guides the trusted, experienced care model Home Services Unlimited uses to continue providing excellent home health care.
Giving Back to the Community of Indianapolis
Volunteering for community services is a high priority for Etelka. Her memberships include the Indiana Association of Rehabilitation Facilities, Executive Women in Health Care and the Indiana Association for Home and Hospice Care, where she is a member of the Board of Directors.
Etelka has also served on the Board of Directors with Hooverwood Home, a highly regarded geriatric facility, since 1997 and as the President for 2005-2006. Through her community work, she has received several awards and accolades, including the Nora McFarland award in 2002, from the Indiana Association of Home and Hospice Care.
