MEANING OF CAREGIVER OR WHO IS A CAREGIVER?
A Caregiver is a paid helper who regularly looks after a sick, elderly or disabled person. “Caregiver” or “caretaker” can refer to anyone who can provide care for another person in need. Caregivers can be classified into different types that tend to specific areas of caretaking, like family caregivers and respite caregivers. Caregivers are individuals that help to ease the burdens of people by assisting them in their day-to-day needs. They can offer their help/services for a long duration or just a short period of time, but their care is always important for the people who are dependent on them.

Everyone requires assistance from time to time and while many seniors rely on the support of their friends and family members for support, sometimes it becomes necessary to seek out additional assistance or even long-term care. Senior citizens often suffer from ailments or any physical problem often finding themselves in the need of a little extra help in their daily lives can actively benefit from the services of a caregiver, but they may not always be available for long-term care. In this case, a private home caregiver can be the next best option.

“Caregiver” is a term that refers to anyone who is qualified as a nursing assistant & cares for any person who requires extra help. This could mean a family caregiver, an elderly caregiver, a home-stay caregiver, or a primary caregiver, just to state a few. In the context of elderly care, this job title typically refers to an individual that specializes in-home caregiving or senior caregiving needs. As the name implies, an in-home caregiver performs care-related activities in the home of the individual for his/her personal care, typically related to one’s everyday life, and eases the caregiver burden of the family member in need of assistance. These professionals may not work under the direction of a doctor or nurse and are not typically considered healthcare professionals, though there may be few exceptions to the case. For example, a homestay caregiver may perform physical therapy, provide medical assistance, or any other healthcare services as needed.

The two major factors for highlighting the need for hiring a caregiver are
i) desire for assistance & independence and
ii) the ability to stay in one’s own home and given care needs.
While residential care facilities are usually the primary choice for many seniors, not all people in this particular age group have the desire to leave their current homes and move into an institutionalized healthcare setting. Caregivers often facilitate their need as a midway point between a complete independent situation and life in a residential care facility. Seniors who need some extra assistance and care but still feel comfortable handling most of their own affairs tend to fare well when they find the right caregiver according to their needs.
