What is caregiver? and What is Home care?

Caregiver is a general term referring to anyone who provides care for a person who needs support to live as independently as possible in the comfort of their own homes. This could mean a family caregiver, a respite caregiver, a home care caregiver, to name a few. In the context of elderly care, this job title typically refers to a private duty, home care caregiver or senior caregiver. As the name suggests, private duty and home care caregivers perform activities of daily living, typically related to one’s everyday life and relieve the caregiver burden of a family member. These professionals do not work under the direction of a doctor or nurse and are not typically considered healthcare professionals. They are either hired by company like us or they are independent caregiver.
