In addition to recognizing doctors and nurses for their work, it is important to recognize caregivers and the role that they play in caring for individuals on a regular basis. Caregivers are crucial parts of the health routines of millions of people worldwide. Today, we want to recognize the work that caregivers do and offer our appreciation for their contributions to the health of so many people.

What is a caregiver?

A caregiver is someone who provides regular care for a child or a sick, elderly, or disabled person. A caregiver can be a volunteer or family member, or a professional that is paid for their time.

Different caregiver jobs require different levels of training. Some may only require CPR training, whereas other may require you to be a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Click HERE to read more about the different qualifications for caregivers.

What do caregivers do?

Caregivers can have many duties and responsibilities. Their job varies depending on the person they are caring for and what his or her needs are. Some common tasks for caregivers are:

  • Providing transportation to and from medical appointments
  • Preparing healthy meals
  • Managing medications
  • Being a meaningful companion
