A Day In the Life as a Caregiver
As a Caregiver you get to help your elderly and disabled adult clients stay in their own homes and live with independence and dignity. You do more than just provide medication reminders or assist with meals, light housekeeping, bathing, toileting, grooming, dressing, errands, and appointments. While those tasks are important, you also provide companionship and socialization, as you support them in visiting with friends, attending events, or working on hobbies. You help your clients delay the effects of aging and stay as independent as possible by making sure they are mentally stimulated, physically active, and well-nourished.
You also ensure that their homes are safe environments, reducing the likelihood of accidents and promoting a timely response to illness as you monitor vital signs such as blood pressure, temperature, and pulse. In this way, you provide real peace-of-mind for them and their families. Studies have shown that those who live at home and retain their independence are happier, healthier, and tend to live longer. And you feel great about facilitating this for your elderly and disabled clients through the part you play in our excellent home care services program!
