I was a part-time housekeeper for an elderly woman for 3 months, after she had a knee replacement. She would give me a list of chores and I would do them throughout the day. Most of it was organizing/decluttering areas, circulating her food storage, simple household chores (vacuuming, dishes, etc.). And I also would drive her to the supermarket and help her get groceries for the week.
I also cleaned houses that were going to be put on the market as rentals. I did this for about 2 years. A local real estate agent would let me know when there were houses that needed cleaning, and I would go and give them a quote on how much I thought the house would cost for me to clean. If they approved my quote I would start cleaning, and turn in my receipts for any supplies at the end. And they would cut me a check for the quote and supplies reimbursements.
