Presentation Transcript




Home caregivers assist seniors with important household and personal routines that are necessary for maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the home and community. Seniors can enjoy the comfort and familiarity of their homes with the support of home care.


Home care providers help seniors maintain their independence by providing support with personal care routines. Caregivers assist with ordinary tasks, such as bathing, grooming, and dressing. Other duties may include reminding clients to take medications and helping with various personal hygiene tasks like using the bathroom.



Many seniors lose motivation to prepare and eat healthy meals when living alone. They are more inclined to eat when meals are prepared for them. Home caregivers plan a healthy menu giving attention to the dietary needs and preferences of their clients. They prepare nutritious meals and take care of the food preparation clean up.

Caregivers manage the household food inventory making sure to throw away perishable foods in a timely manner and checking expirations dates on containers.




Home care providers help senior citizens maintain a comfortable and healthy home by doing light housework. Housekeeping duties include making beds, changing the linens when needed, and washing the laundry. Sometimes light dusting and vacuuming or sweeping are required. The caregiver will take out the garbage and prepare for garbage collection.

Light Housekeeping


Seniors with home care benefit from provided transportation. Social activity is an important component of an independent lifestyle. Caregivers provide transportation to appointments for personal care, medical care, and social or religious activities.

Transporting clients to social activities is an especially rewarding part of home care. Seniors enjoy going to social functions with their caregiver. Home care providers and their clients develop friendships as they attend community activities together.



In addition to providing transportation, caregivers run errands such as grocery shopping and picking up prescriptions and dry cleaning. They also help seniors with remembering appointments and keep their calendars up to date. They may pick up and organize the mail as needed.

Running Errands


Perhaps the most important of all the caregiving duties is providing companionship. While performing household and personal care tasks, home care providers give needed attention and validation to their clients. They listen, visit, and participate in the daily lives of their senior citizen friends.

Companionship makes physical and mental exercise more enjoyable. Seniors who enjoy spending time with their caregivers are more independent and happy overall. They may play cards or board games together at home and join other seniors in social activities in the community.

Home care can extend a senior's independence and preserve their lifestyle within the home and personal community. Quality caregivers provide compassionate support and stability to senior citizens in their homes.
