Who are Caregivers?

Who is a Caregiver?

Simply put, a ‘family caregiver’ takes care of a loved one who is unable to take care of themselves for a variety of reasons that are usually medical.

For instance, as a family caregiver for your elderly mother, you help her in many ways beyond just ‘physical care’. Elderly who are ill are likely to look to their children for emotional support, in some cases.

A ‘family caregiver’ has to step up to the role of a nurse, a doctor, a counselor, a friend, and sometimes even a banker- all rolled into one.
