The history of the housekeeping industry has long been intertwined with history in the U.S. and around the world.
In fact, the term “housekeeping” was first used in a book written by the first African-American president, Abraham Lincoln, and the first housekeeper was first recorded in the British Museum’s collection.
In the 20th century, home health care was also born as a field of science.
The modern health care industry was born in the 1970s with the advent of the “big data” era and the rise of new technology that enabled hospitals to track every step of their patients care.
Today, the housekeeper is part of our daily lives and can make a difference in many ways.
