Caregiving

Caregivers are very special people. If it were not for caregivers many elderly people would not be able to remain in their homes or could not go out into society for social or business reasons. Caregivers may be professionals, volunteers, friends or family. They assume a great deal of responsibility to ensure their charge receives proper nutrition and health care. Often, caregiving is a 24/7 job.
