Elderly Caregivers Most elderly people are cared for at home by a caregiver such as a spouse, child or friend, and sometimes with assistance from a nurse. Home care nurses can provide a wealth of services for adults who require it. Many people hire a caregiver for their own convenience. Having a medical nurse come out and care for the person means the person doesn’t have to leave the home, which can be an inconvenience to homebound people, or people in a wheelchair with limited mobility. Roles To Be Filled By My Caregiver Caregivers typically observe and assess the health of their patients. They monitor the health and changes to the health of the patient while on medication. Home care nurses should report directly to the patient’s physician and family regarding concerns for new medical conditions or worsening health. Companionship: ensuring the medical and emotional well-being of the patient. Medication: while your caregiver cannot prescribe medication, they can administer medicine and alter dosages according to a physician’s advice. Assistance at Home: tasks such as bathing the patient, ensuring body cleanliness, and eating is taken care of by the caregiver. This includes taking the patient to the toilet and assisting with everyday physical tasks.
